All the poets that surround me are damned damned damned
But what they see holy imagery
Our only power to intercede
In the TV screen talking head scene
Yeah the mind control of this media machine is 500 years deep here

And every sub/counter culture has been bought and sold
And cross marketing it is the only way to go

We all drink Che cola and wear fight the system ts
We’re all watching it play by play on our new television screens
Yeah the revolution is televised widely advertised
Clever marketing schemes on that idealized dream

And if the masses want their self destruction who am I to say
Distrust your tv screens distrust authority
And brand name anything

Socially we think we are so advanced everyone is a practitioner of PC
While behind our backs we’re buying tickets to that Hollywood comedy
And we laugh at rape laugh at violence laugh at hate
Because laughter is the best medicine to keep us doped up and unenlightened

Meanwhile we let the conservative right-wingers
Put the queers through their righteous voting poll ringers

While we sit at home and watch TV so we know what to wear how to think
What to do if our neighbor starts looking like a terrorist
