Album: Survive (1988)

  • Radio
    An insidious form
    Helping shape thoughts
    Making You conform,
    Programming Music
    Easy Listening
    Helps you to achieve
    That moronic grin
    Playing you
    Regurgitated Pap
    Selling products
    That are mostly
    Crap
    Rarely hearing music
    You want to hear
    It has an effect
    Over all these years

    Why don't you think for yourself?
    Live in this self made Hell

    Television
    The idiot tube
    Helps to raise our
    Children as fools
    Watch the news
    They only want to see
    Our awareness is
    Limited by network
    VP's
    Moronic sit-coms
    One sided news
    Alter your feeling
    Give you conformist
    Views
    Why can't you get that
    Garbage out of your
    Head
    You're better off to
    Read a good book
    Instead

    Why Can't You Think For Yourself?????
    Live in this self made Hell

    Newspapers
    What do they say?
    Not much I think
    When they want
    School kids to pray
    Getting some facts from
    Some daily news
    You hate the system
    But adhere to its views
    Blaming the dead
    Cause they can't
    Complain
    Shielding officials
    Holding them
    Above the blame
    You better wake up and see
    What's plain to see
    Or end up a willing part of the machine

    Take that Liberals and Conservatives! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
