I got my propaganda
I got revisionism
I got my violence
In hi-def ultra-realism

Wanted to cap somebody
Wanted to buck them down
Wanted to pull the trigger
Just to hear the fucking sound
I got my propaganda
I get my cable free
I hang it from my neck
And go to work from tree to tree
It's got to be the poison
They're putting in my food
It takes me by the brain
And marks me to my every move
I try to change the channel
The channel is changing me
I take the cup and fill it up
Before I pee

I got my propaganda
I got revisionism
I got my violence
In hi-def ultra-realism

I'm spread out on the toilet
I'm sprawled across the floor
I feel my head expanding
Beyond the room
Beyond the door
I'm in the oval office
In an electric chair
I sign my name
Beneath the claim
That I don't really care
I got survivalism
You got my claim to fame
I got the right to say
I'm fighting in Jesus's name
I see the .45's
But I wont act surprised
Found myself along the way
Believeing your lies

I got my propaganda
I got revisionism
I got my violence
In hi-def ultra-realism
All a part of this great nation
I got my fist
I got my plan
I got survivalism

    General CommentI submitted this and I know all the words aren't exact. If you could help, that'd be awesome. I also bought it on vinyl and don't think it's the greatest but it's the only NIN song I knew about not submitted. Plus the lyrics just aren't very good-kinda immature.

    General CommentI bought this on vinyl, and i really dont like this remix. I hate how he tries to sing in here and it sucks. Its like this person tried to make it a rap remix... Uuugh. I dont know, not as pleasing as Survivalism.

    General CommentYeah, I really think this 'remix' just sucks. The recording sounds very amature, the lyrics are lame.. and I agree with UberTallDude, when he trys to sing a long -oh damn.. that's bad. This version should not have been added to this site.

    General CommentI can't stand this song. It isn't Trent. I agree with Pikachu - if we can get this song out of here, go for it!

    General CommentI haven't heard this version, so I can't say anything about how it sounds, but this sounds more like Saul Williams than Reznor. He has a similar message to get across in some of his other songs, which, by the way, are awesome.

    General CommentI can fix the lyrics, really wasn't to far off. I just don't know how to edit it.
