    You've got a personality
    We'll throw you in the sea and watch you drown
    Dumb it down
    Your concentration span's too long
    It's longer than this song, that's not allowed
    Dumb it down
    You don't need books to know what's what
    We'll pile them up and burn them to the ground
    Dumb it down
    And if you say that we're corrupt
    We'll round you up and run you out of town
    Dumb it down

    Down and down and down it goes
    Where it stops nobody knows
    And not a lot of people seem to care
    Well it's so crazy, it's so great
    We can all communicate
    But no one's saying anything out there
    Is there anybody out there?

    Intelligence is dangerous
    A virus of the brain you pass around
    Dumb it down
    We'll vaccinate each boy and girl
    Lobotomise the world through sight and sound
    Dumb it down
    No one can tell you what to think
    And if you think that's true then you're a clown
    Dumb it down
    'Cause freedom's wasted on the free
    You just don't see the beauty all around
    Dumb it down

    Down and down and down we slide
    It's too tricky to decide
    Between channels one and sixty-three
    'Cause everything is mindless fluff
    Like this world's not dumb enough
    Does anybody feel the same as me?
    Is there anybody listening?
