Facebook algorithms annoying you? Seeing less of who you know and more of what the mainstream wants you to know? The mainstream used to have its place and wasn’t so embedded in our lifestyles however things have changed. Do you still watch the telly to unwind therefore you open up the floodgates for all the jargon that comes with? You might relate with me on this jam!
So listen up, when they ever gonna listen to us,
I’d rather live life then switch on and watch the big brother,
live steaming in fact, the demons got us day dreaming on our back,
fiending for that lack of meaning
bunch of scenes made to change the way it seems
and get in the way of how it is
and that’s the biz
and they’re busy at it
flipping scripts, twisted tales
marketing sales bending the truth
and the truth it becomes suspicious too
being put in that polluted vessel
that’s vicious by all means
nothing about it is special
not even the adds in between the shows
and it shows there’s a lot of hate in this world
believe you me and their taping it all
and edit it what should be said and censored
its confusing when your conscious
the general consensus don’t make sense
it can mess with your head
watch yourself not the box and what it sells
As I sit on the couch and flick between the channels.
The TV wanna put me to sleep.
Dirty water in them channels on the mainstream.
Open them eyes and soak it in unwind,
close your mind and relax.
Now as I kick up my feet, pick up the remote.
Ease back in my seat and I put on a show
to see whats in it for me.
A lot of this I never needed to know
and time I never needed to waste or notice.
The doses of hypnosis
aimed to make you docile.
A simulation for the nation
you been numbered for the fun of it
free to air by the government
the media dumbing us down
and telling us who is running this town.
Please I’ve grown werier
of the so called inferior.
Deliveries of fears straight into your interior,
Letting junk get to your brain when your not aware
as you sit and stare and soak it in and focus
on the sit coms, soap operas, old shows again and again
a current affair and bogus offers.
The fading trends of fashion then your clothes aren’t matching.
Buy into it, don’t refrain
its called entertainment
comes with nothing to gain
everybody wanna be famous
and sell their name
but stop look and listen
they got you by the brain
in prison, in a box or a zoo
cause its like this
it’s monkey see monkey do
then they got your attention
an they seeing right through you
cause she smiles and you smile
and she drinks and you drink
the same shit and you think
and you think your normal
cause you act the same way
as they do in the portal
where they take you for a ride
once they break your spirit
like a horse and put you in the human race course
where they trade in face value
and the lowest common denominator
is being bought by a real world terminator
shit you think it respects you
don’t get stupid
channel your energy more efficiently
don’t waste it watching the telly
get to grips with reality.
