    General CommentIt's refering to the news I think. The news shows these horrific things, everyone is swallowing it up and they see it as being similar to the violent dirty porn you can get.
    The whole song is a big finger up to the news corperations for showing these stories about rape and violent crimes.

    Song MeaningMaybe it's about how most television shows have sexual content and people screen each channel for something relative to porn. "Turn off your TV." Is it against pornography or not? But hey, what the hell do I know? I don't spend all day trying to figure it out by searching the web for some one elses interpretation of the meaning.

    General CommentThe degradation of the human mind through process of telecommunication. I love this song. And if you have downloaded the album, GO OUT AND BUY IT ON MAY 17TH. If you love SOAD, you should help support them by buying the album. I downloaded it myself, but I'm still going to buy it.

    General CommentYeah, this one will definitely be recognized as one of the bests on the album. I downloaded the album myself, but I'm going to buy it this Tuesday and get it signed by the band at Best Buy in Burbank, CA. I can not select a favorite off this album. But this song's message is pretty much manifested throughout the entire thing.
