Nobody's hungry, everyone is well to do
And we lack motivation
If the truth can set you free
Then how can we keep dying for you?
In a distant land of different ways

Our only connection is
A television in the living room
And the anchor is only putting you to bed
With filler in your head
Delivering a trivial story
Instead of giving you what might be
Trouble for the CEO (GOP)

They're only putting you to bed

Don't understand why they want to hurt you
You only know about your country's virtue
You've never heard of a term called blowback
It's the result of a central intelligent attack

I want to know what makes you wake up
Wake up

    General CommentGreat song by a great band. It seems fairly obvious that the song is about people who are ignorant about the government' faults and evils, and only knowing the words of how glorious we are that are pumped into our heads as children (You only know about your country's virtue). Also, the chorus clearly is intended to show how the mass media only reinforces this ignorance by providing trivial or altered stories.
