New America

By Exener

Blind...innocent...naïve...sheep
Lost without someone to guide us... to our destruction
Be made to feel safe... feeling the lie; believing anyway
Waiting to be saved... waiting for our savior... follow the greatest of fools
And do not question... do not critique... do not dare to utter resistance
Wave our flags... follow the leader... don the blinders... close eyes
This is the new America

YES! Let's give away ALL our hard fought freedoms!!!
First Amendment... Fourth Amendment... Fifth Amendment!!!! Who cares!!!
Maybe there's just too many; we could afford to whittle them down...
Make life less complex... bring down to the least common denominator...
Simplify life for those "C" students...
Like our good mr. w...
Let's rebuild this America in his name!

Think for myself? Too much work...
Let the government be my Great Protector... I give myself over...
Let me sit on my fat ass and watch my TV... subsist on a diet of hypocrisy and collusion
This is all I need... my TV IV... direct into my veins... direct into my brain...
This is MY America! This is my Brave New America!

I don't need to even choose who I gather news from! Thank you, oh wise ones!!!
Thank you for taking away those pesky decisions!
ABC.NBC.CBS.PBS.NPR.FOX.CNN.FUC.UNU.NUNUNU.FUC.ALL
All of the same mold... do away with the "middle man"...
Pipe me right into White House public relations...
Why risk getting a word wrong?
Why risk an independent interpretation?
Why risk anything at all!?!
Risk-Free America! THIS is what I've been waiting for...

And I didn't even know...
THIS is what I've been waiting for!
Oh, at long last... I have finally found my Way.
My problem? Following the wrong messiah...
Following my own Self...
No more!!! No more... no more. no more no more... me
No more me...
