The message of this song: Don't blindly accept your gang, your religion, or even your nation. The people who walk complacently through life accepting all that is put in front of them, might as well have bullets in their heads. Television is a weapon used to pacify those who watch it into the living dead. Until people take control of their lives, they are mindless components of the entire machine. (thanks, Tim - Pittsburgh, PA)
