"Keep Your Children in a Coma"

keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
starting today!

life is hard for kids today
they have to program everything
dude, they have to use computers
just to sing

if you keep them dosed on soma
you can spare them all their pain
keep your children in a coma
and stay sane

you can't let them go to school
for fear of bullying little beasts
and you can't take them to church
for fear of priests

you can never really know-ma
if there motives remain pure
keep your children in a coma
and be sure

all that background radiation
oil companies run bad
party politics amuck
good girls gone bad

they would just get melanoma
if they surfed in see-through jeans
keep your children in a coma
through their teens

little Caleb and Valoma
would be drugged up anyway
keep your coma
starting today

keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
starting today!

keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
starting today!

    General CommentI love this song I think it's about overprotective parents trying to keep their children "asleep" and safe from the world around them the person speaking is like the presenter of a tv commercial or something similar trying to advertise why it's good to keep them in a comma:

    "life is hard for kids today
    they have to program everything
    dude, they have to use computers
    just to sing"

    - sometimes they don't have real talent but their parents want them to be stars so they make them be like robots programming computers to sing for them cause they can't really do it by themselves, or have no creativity or abilities. They need computers for everything not just singing, is what I feel about the last verse that they can't do anything by themselves anymore.

    "if you keep them dosed on soma
    you can spare them all their pain
    keep your children in a coma
    and stay sane"

    - give them drugs to keep them sane I think this part is pretty obvious, like instead of dealing with misbehaviour from children give them drugs to dumb them out of the world so they don't have to deal with their pain or reality for that matter, you stay sane cause you don't have to deal with their problems either or give them any advice as a parent, instead they go to psychologists or someone else to take care of them and possibly will drug them up.

    "you can't let them go to school
    for fear of bullying little beasts
    and you can't take them to church
    for fear of priests
    you can never really know-ma
    if there motives remain pure
    keep your children in a coma
    and be sure"

    - don't let them go to school cause bullies will get them and you're being overprotective not letting them defend for themselves. you never know if the priests motives are pure so you can't trust your priests either rather keep them safe and be sure they won't get hurt.

    "all that background radiation
    oil companies run bad
    party politics amuck
    good girls gone bad
    they would just get melanoma
    if they surfed in see-through jeans
    keep your children in a coma
    through their teens
    little Caleb and Valoma
    would be drugged up anyway
    keep your coma
    starting today

    - they'll get skin cancer if you let them out in the sun, they're gonna turn into hookers, prostitutues, whores if they wear see through jeans, and probably even do drugs. Make sure to keep them safe by not giving them junk food ever and being overprotective even of what they eat, where they do, god forbids they are out in the open exposed to toxic gases and whatnot, so rather keep them close and safe and stupid.
