lyrics

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

There’s this Ministry of Love at the centre of town
In torture and in pain it wears the diamond crown
Locked on all its sides, booby traps and barbed wires
No windows on its walls, they have the holy fire

There’s this Ministry of Love at the centre of town
In torture and in pain it wears the diamond crown
Locked on all its sides, booby traps and barbed wires
No windows on its walls, they have the holy fire

Dare not speak no ill
Dare not criticise
The ministry can hear it all
Can even read your mind
Follow all their rules
Behave, if you please
The Ministry of Love
Has its own thought police

He, who controls the past, controls the future
He, who controls the present controls the past
All that is needed is an unending series of victories
Over your own memory
‘Reality Control’, we call it ‘Reality Control’

There’s this room 101, it's a cellar underground
With all your darkest fears in its mirror of sound
The brain-wash machine for the hardcore renegades
Will pull you up to senses and cure your disease

Dare not speak no ill
Dare not criticise
The ministry can see it all
Can even read your mind
Follow all their rules
Behave, if you please
The Ministry of Love
Has its own thought police

We are not interested in the good of others
We are interested solely in power
Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness
Only power, pure power…
The object of persecution is persecution
The object of torture is torture
The object of power is power
Now do you begin to understand me?

Attention!
Big Brother is Watching You
Attention!
Big Brother is Watching You
Attention!
Big Brother is Watching You
Attention!
Big Brother is Watching You

about

Murphy's Paradox Kolkata, India

Murphy's Paradox was born out of an abstraction, a kink, to somehow try and blur the lines separating Singer/Songwriter and Indie/Alternative music.
