we've been terrorized
with television problems at sale price
when it's too good to be true
we've been terrorized
with air conditioned issues in spare times
well if it's too good to be true
i can't live without you

I pretended to care for hours
I pretended to care for days

but your mouth never closed
your excuses are filled with holes
suppose you're being lied to
would you ever even know?

we've been terrorized
with air conditioned issues in spare times
what do you believe in more?
we've been terrorized
the oldest magician returns to steal your soul
what do you believe in more?

there's a special logic that grows with commercial perversion
it'll put your mind at ease
just to be safe
it'll put your mind at ease
it's like being blindfolded all the time

but your mouth never closed
your excuses are filled with holes
suppose you're being lied to
would you ever even know?

cause you'll be compensated for your testimonial
just do your best to make it feel as real as possible
cause you'll become ok with all the things you didn't know
just do your best to make it seem natural

we've been terrorized
with television problems at full price
when it's too good to be true
we've been terrorized
with air conditioned issues in spare times
when it's too good to be true

we've been terrorized
we'll be the last to know and the first ones to go

    General Commenti'm not completely sure on all these lines, so if any one has any ideas i'd be happy to edit them.

    General CommentThis song is just way to fucking awesome. We have been terrorized is just the way to put it, with all the garbage propaganda they feed us and this fake war on terror, and this slave state we live in. The more you open your mind away from the control you see all around you. I'm just so happy to hear this.

    not sure about "full price," but it'd make sense considering the first time that line is used he definitely sings "sale price."

    General Commentim pretty sure these are 99% correct. i borrowed some of other's responses along with my own.

    we've been terrorized
    with television problems at sale price
    when it's too good to be true
    we've been terrorized
    with their conditioned issues and spared doubt
    well if it's too good to be true
    i can't live without you

    I pretended to care for hours
    I pretended to care for days

    But your mouth never closed
    your excuses are filled with holes
    suppose you're being lied to
    would you ever even know?

    We've been terrorized
    with their conditioned issues and spared doubts
    what do you believe in more?
    we've been terrorized
    the oldest magician returns to steal your soul
    what do you believe in more?

    there's a special logic that grows with commercial perversion
    it'll put your mind at ease
    just to be safe
    it'll put your mind at ease
    it's like being blindfolded all the time

    but your mouth never closed
    your excuses are filled with holes
    suppose you're being lied to
    would you ever even know?
    oh.

    because you've become fixated for your testimonial
    just do your best to make it feel as real as possible
    because you'll become ok with all the things you didn't know
    just do your best to make it seem natural

    we've been terrorized
    with television problems at full price
    well if it's too good to be true

    Oh if it's to good to be true.
    We've been terrorized

    Oh if it's to good to be true.
    I can't live without you.

    I pretended to care for hours.

    We've been terrorized.
    The oldest magician returns to steal your soul.
    What do you believe in more?

    There's a special logic that grows with commercial provision.
    It'll put your mind at ease.
    Just to be safe.
    It'll put your mind at ease.
    It's like being blind folded all the time.

    But your mouth never closed.
    Your excuse are filled with holes.
    Suppose you're being lied to.
    Would you ever even know?

    cause you'll be compensated for your testimonial

    Oh if it's to good to be true.

    We've been terrorized.
    We'll be the last to know and the first ones to go.



    I'm not sure if it's commercial Provision or Pro version, Provision makes more sense but what ev.

    I honestly can't make it out yet. It's to new.
    I'm thinking it has to do with the places that sell faulty shit over the television and how they cover up their lawsuits by paying off the injured hence the "You'll be compensated for your testimonial. Just do your best to make it feel as real as possible." I'll just have to listen longer. But those lyrics are perfect. Prove me wrong?

    General CommentPersonally i think this song is about the war on terror which isn't even going on because its a bunch of bs that the governement and media are feeding us.

    "cause you'll be compensated for your testimonial
    Just do your best to make it feel as real as possible
    Cause you'll become ok with all the things you didn't know.
    Just do your best to make it seem natural."

    like here seems like he's saying the government is telling the media just make people beleive there is a war on terror going on or even perhaps crime in general every single time you turn on the tv what are you hearing about ? crime and statically if you do your research there really isn't as much crime as you hear about. they want you scared. as for the whole album i think it deff touches base with Zeigeistmovie if you havent seen it i suggest it its basically what this album is about at least my interpratation.
