I'm in love with you, I know
And I know that you love me too
I'm in love with you, I know
I'm in love with everyone too

We're all comrades now, you know
We're all brothers under the skin
With a few adjustments now
Living in the perfect system

The adjustment's simple
There's really no pain
You'll hardly notice
Anything has changed

Living in a programmed life
Never really has ups and downs
There's no need for fighting now
There's no reason to wear a frown

A perfect system
And there's no confrontation
Unnecessary friction
To impede our concentration

We've simply done away with
Unnecessary friction
I live in a system
I've got an occupation
I get enough nutrition

By eating protein biscuits
Recommended by the system
It's routine regulation
I had an operation

I'm in love with you, I know
And I know that you love me too
I'm in love with you, I know
I'm in love with everyone too

I can tell by the look
In your blank dull eyes
That you agree
But I'm not a bit surprised

Living in a programmed life
Never really has ups and downs
There's no need for fighting now
There's no reason to wear a frown

I had an operation
With no adverse reaction
They tampered with my brain some
It helped me see the reason
For living in the system
It helped me see the reason

(We're all brothers in a perfect world)
In a perfect world there's uniformity
(We're all brothers in a perfect world)
In a perfect world there's continuity
(We're all brothers in a perfect world)
There's no need for spontaneity

Perfect system
We're all brothers to the end
Brothers to the end
Brothers to the end

I know and I know that you love me too
(Brothers to the end)
I know I'm in love with everyone too
(Brothers to the end)

I know we're all comrades under the skin
(Brothers to the end)
I know living in a perfect system
Brothers to the end
