Their 2+2 does not equal 4. Their 2+2 equal whatever, they want us to die for.

Chorus:

ABOUT FACE! Snap to Attention

FROM YOUR OWN CONclusion to the things you see.

ABOUT FACE! Sometimes the explanations

DON'T ADD up to the facts.

Time and again they manufacture you a cause and rally the public around it, check out the movie "Wag the dog". Killing to further the interest of private corporations, Killing to control global economic situations, Killing for personal gain (i.e. Bush in Panama). Learn the fuckin' TRUTH you won't be so quick to sign on!

Chorus (repeat)

Our lives reflect TV sitcoms and tragedies. Like a bad joke, I ask, "How many of you don't see...? And just how many... How many of you do not realize...?"

Gung ho and true - to the Stars and stripes. They fuckin' brainwashed you, to do their bidding... And like a flock of sheeps - with wool over your eyes. You never stop to question, you just fall into line.

The media's a business, that provides entertainment. Their bottom line : MONEY. And stories that will make it... So they run with stories, that promote lies. To keep the rating coming, wealth from promoting world strife.

Life must be so easy, when you don't have to think. Black and white like printing, from the newspaper's ink. I wish I had the chance, to reveal the lies. But you're so fucking brainwashed, would it even help to try... TO GET THROUGH... TO YOU!?!

To get through, through, through, through, through, through... To get through you!

    General Commentthis is a sik song, but the lyrics on this thing are wrong. "Our lives reflect TV sitcoms and tragedies. Like a bad joke, I ask, How many of you don't see...? And just how many...how many of you swallow the lies? How many of you do not realize...?" k. just felt like pointing that out.

    General Commentnoriega was a fucking dictator. he was against everything that anti flag stands for. i dont know about you all but if Sane is saying that we shouldnt have been in panama but he calls the U.S. a dictatorship, hes got his views backwards.
