In this faltering nation the future belongs
To the children in school, there's something wrong
6th grader on crack, handgun overflowing in his hand
Now he's just further demand

We search for the source and still that child is left watching inhumanity, bloodshed
As the televiolence feeds his head

If only he knew the consequence of greed
A conscious state of mind, TV is not reality

Never a victim, the role model said
Bang bang, the bad guy is dead
Always a rockstar on eMpty TV
A lesson complete, now the child has needs

Of competition, they bleed
Oh beautiful for bills of green
Never mind spacious skies overhead
Bleed the earth and butter your bread

If only he knew the consequence of greed
A conscious state of mind, what he sees is not reality

TV is not reality

    General Commentthis song means so much.
    it's about the present and the future.
    about the wrong things we believe, cause we see it on TV and about the children, who grew up in state of mind and the greed of the rich ones. like it's told in the song.

    & the video tells the story. it's great
