ZERO

 

ZERO

This is a public service announcement.

Who are you?

When your country suppresses you.

Who are you?

When freedom is but an illusion.

Who are you?

When you have to conform

to the ideals of a mad man.

Who are you?

Who am I?

I am no one.

Subject zero,

you have failed to conform.

Days of propaganda,

hours of speech,

minutes of confrontation.

Who are you?

I am no one.

Subject zero,

you have failed to conform.

Bow down to our laws.

Bow down to our customs.

Knees to the floor.

Head on the floor.

Bow down to our narrow mentality.

Bow down to our festering madness.

Now tell me,

who are you?

I am no one.

Subject zero,

bow down or

you will be tortured,

you will be prosecuted.

You will be made to

confess,

convert.

Why, why do you resist?

I am no one.

 

Subject zero,

you have failed to conform.

Conversion failed.

Manipulation failed.

All attempts to convert have failed.

One last time.

Who are you?

I am no one.

Resist,

resist,

resist…

The system is a bloody disease.

There is no cure.

No vaccine.

Resist,

RESIST!

RESIST!

RESIST!

Resist…

Conversion failed.

You, are an anomaly.

Resist,

resist,

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist

resist…
