Open Your Eyes

August 1, 2017

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Video games train the kids for war.
Army chic in high-fashion stores.
Law and Order’s done their job.
Prisons filled while the rich still rob.
Assassination politics.
Violence rules within our nations’ midst.
Well ignorance is their power tool.
You’ll only know what they want you to know.

The television cannot lie.
Controlling media with smokescreen eyes.
Nuclear Politicians picture show.
The acting’s lousy but the blind don’t know.

Open your eyes. See the lies right in front of ya.

They scare us all with threats of war.
So we forget just how bad things are.
You taste the fear when you’re all alone.
They’re gonna get’cha when you’re on your own.

The silence of conspiracy.
Slaughtered on the alter of apathy.
You gotta wake up from your sleep.
‘Cause meek inherits earth six feet deep.

Open your eyes. See the lies right in front of ya.
