Open your eyes
To the lies
Read the signs
Intertwined
Inside the
Headlines

Open your mind
You ain't blind
In this era of
Diversion for
The sake of
Mankind

You gotta

Open your eyes
To the lies
Read the signs
Intertwined
Inside the
Headlines

Open your mind
You ain't blind
In this era of
Diversion for
The sake of
Mankind

Open your eyes and let go of the hive
of worker bees whose purpose seems
to be controlled till they die.
Never knowing the why,

or how it went down.
All they know is it happened.
at some point they became another victim of
multimedia distraction

Stay rushed stay ahead of the game
Television and radio wired
direct to your brain
while your attention is trained

To follow with all of the visuals
Skull and bone, sleight of hand, political rituals
In a system of government where the Republicans take information as integral:
The level of lies the media tries to sell us is unequivocal.

Habitual tactics made to distract
you away from the issue.
Ignore the war!
Watch Paris wipe her ass with a tissue.

Paris: That's hot!

While you were looking at Anna Nicole,
soldiers we loved went to war leaving families at home
As we watched the smoke screen of corporate news shows,
freedom died. This song is the bell's death toll.

Open your eyes
To the lies
Read the signs
Intertwined
Inside the
Headlines

Open your mind
You ain't blind
In this era of
Diversion for
The sake of
Mankind

You gotta

Open your eyes
To the lies
Read the signs
Intertwined
Inside the
Headlines

Open your mind
You ain't blind
In this era of
Diversion for
The sake of
Mankind

Let go of the notions you chose to suppose
Locate your own way to stay in the know
If you don't pay attention I suggest you listen close,
cause folks won't get it if I don't spit it slow...

Since Hoover and Nixon mixed up the system,
we've been on a crash course with collision.
No trust and division of the country we live in,
all praise to the buck, hands up for the bidding.

Never take what they give over to me at face value.
Base your info on everything around you.
Speak the truth even when everyone doubts you.
From me to you I got a letter going out. To:

Flag waving nationalists, grass saving naturalists,
and tax paying families with kids.
Cash craving capitalists keep facts fading past the abyss.
This cat's past waiting pass me a fist.

That's what flips a pacifist into a terrorist for certain.
Filming massacres and then they air a different version.
Beware of false assertions, prepare for the incursion.
Let's tear apart the curtain on this Era of Diversion.

Open your eyes
To the lies
Read the signs
Intertwined
Inside the
Headlines

Open your mind
You ain't blind
In this era of
Diversion for
The sake of
Mankind

You gotta
Open your eyes
To the lies
Read the signs
Intertwined
Inside the
Headlines

Open your mind
You ain't blind
In this era of
Diversion for
The sake of
Mankind
