In this faltering nation the future belongs to the children in school There´s something wrong Sixth grader on crack Handgun overflowing in his hands Now he is just further demand We search for the source and still that child is left watching Inhumanity, bloodshed as the tele-violence feeds his head [Chorus] Only if he knew the consequence of greed A contious state of mind T.V. is not reality Never a victim the role model said Bang bang, the bad guy is dead Always a rockstar on eMpty T.V. The lesson complete Now the child has needs Of competition they bleed Oh beautiful for bills of green Nevermind spacious skies overhead Bleed the earth and butter your bread [Repeat Chorus] Chils turns on T.V. What does he see? Nature of man, dishonesty That child grows old Story be told as he sits behind bars and his soul grows cold

    General CommentI can't believe no-one's commented! It's one of my favourite Lag songs. The meaning is pretty obvious. Tragic Vision.. media control and influence.

    General CommentI agree with you. There is an obvious pun in this sound and I don't know how many people saw it. Tragic Vision T.V.
