lyrics

[intro]: Al Pist
Every frame they flash by our eyes is a message
If it doesn’t enlighten the mind it just oppresses it
Every frame they flash by our eyes is a message
If it doesn’t enlighten the mind it just oppresses it

Agoraphobic nation, blame placed adjacent
We’re looking for a villain in juxtaposed faces
…a new excuse to justify racists
TV escapists, made hate that’s shameless
…everything I know I learned from 80s action movies
…unbeknownst of the messages they’re passing through me
…Watch the silver screen, it’s not an answer now
…Listen for the stars, how’s that propaganda sound?
Tune in tonight when conditioning starts, find every whisper they’ve hidden in art
Cling to the signal, the glow is so comforting, it’s all you have when you live in the dark
Fill us with misguided terror to block any sympathy when all the misery starts
It’s easy to fucking ignore the effects because you’re not the one who will live with the scars
It’s easy to follow the action, they’re banking on nobody caring or knowing the facts
Justify murder by taking a sniper and paint a hero from a sociopath
We feel that Call of Duty, but we’ve all be monsters
Since before Hanz Gruber fell to Nakatomi Plaza

[bridge/hook]: Al Pist

Everything I know I learned from teachers in my school
That textbook salivation Pavlovian drool
Facts passed from the government to subservient subordinates
We’re taught to tie the noose while they kick out the stool

Every frame they flash by our eyes is a message
If it doesn’t enlighten the mind it just oppresses it
Every frame they flash by our eyes is a message
If it doesn’t enlighten the mind it just oppresses it

[verse 2]: Brzowski
Blunder bargaining chips pushed to table edge
Slumberers wheezing through and dream of pulling sledge
A new excuse to lionize incisors
A new platform if only to proselytize
Everything I know I learned from Karl Marx in the boonies
Never questioned theory and practice would not be congruent
NowI read a screen full of DIY How’s
Checking for the footnotes and subtle mines in the ground
5th column in essence, glitter of putrescence
Herald of presence, reflection of pressure
Believe hologram, hold hands with puppetry
Touch up the back drop to crop out the peasantry
Ship me a meme that will make any difference
Stem the supplies to contempt and to privilege
Poison the candy and sweeten the pottery
Jogging and training for Running Man Lotteries
Give me a gun and I’ll fight all your wars
Sell a Pepsi a Coke and a Coors
Lure me with freebies and promise of jobs
Follow Mcguffins or sleep w/ the slobs
Conceive summer jams, sand where rubber bleeds
Props to Ashcroft, enshrine a scorched earth policy

[bridge/hook]: Al Pist
Everything I know I learned from lookin behind the curtain
Fact checkin diggin dirt and attackin the uncertain
Extracting trapped verses like snatchin packed purses
And searching contents for context and subversion

Every frame they flash by our eyes is a message
If it doesn’t enlighten the mind it just oppresses it
Every frame they flash by our eyes is a message
If it doesn’t enlighten the mind it just oppresses it
