The media is a tool designed to mold us into slaves
Drugging us into an empty, apathetic daze
The trick is that we think that everything is going fine
But the truth to our reality lies buried in the mind

I don't give a fuck about the Hollywood elite
I don't really care if models can't fucking eat
I don't give a fuck about which movie is on top
But what I really know is that the shit has got to stop

Consumer appetites are never satisfied in full
Cause the objects that they buy can simply never fill the void
A constant need for meaning, and accumulating shit
drives the lust in their obsession just to get another fix

I don't give a fuck about the TV ratings game
The Real World is not a party, just a place for the insane
If that reflects reality, then pass another drink
You try to be a millionaire, I'll vomit in the sink

What the fuck is left to try
on an avaricious nation on an economic high?
If Rome could last 500 years
Who then will throw the wrench inside our gears?

The bottom line is money on the Western power scene
There celebrities and porn can let the population dream
They're pathetic human living in an advertising glut
Who devour with a passion what the mainstream vomits up

    General CommentThese guys put what they think of everything in such great lyrics, man. It's like they took a two hour rambling about media and put it into a 1:55 song.

    General CommentHe doesn't give a fuck about this worlds glamour aspirations. Just about how people are obsessed with the whole advertising scheme and buy into it with the belief that it'll achieve them some kind of respect, when really it's just a ploy to drain you of everything because you're their stupid slave. Sort of like saying Fuck Big Brother! Cool Lyrics, great song.

    General CommentIt also speaks of the celebrities and such acting to blind society; allowing society to dream of what might be, and to distract them from their own pathetic lives.

    These lyrics fucking rule, straight to the point.
