Power on. Static. Ext.
Tune in to to receive.
Give  your brain a wash.

Channel 3
-You feel calm.
You are completely normal.
Drink up.
A glass a day keeps the thoughtsΒ at bay.-
Nevermind that,
What else is on?

Channel 7
-Capitalism vs. communism, in for consumerism!
Nationalism vs. terrorism, all about freedom!
So much conflict, so little meaning;
People say justice/liberty,
They mean retribution/security.-

Channel 11
-Today in the news,
Continuing strife . . .-
News implies new,
Get a life.

Channel 42
-Who decides what you watch?
Not the actors nor anchors,
They just do their job.
They read the lines
but who tells them when to stop?
It's difficult to figure history out,
To sort the patriotic memorabilia
from what events have past.
Do we just lap it up?
I'd like to think not
but what we're been raised on
is hard to shrug.
Mind is malleable.
Ask yourself,
What's this life?-
Something's wrong.
Network instability

Connection lost.
. . . . . . .
The matrix has you
. . . . . . .
Connection reestablished.

Channel ∞
-What is life?
If you had to choose-
switch
-between knowledge-
flickers
-and a good time,-
glitching
-Which would you choose?-
red pill vs. blue pill
-Would it be right?-
receive and
-"Remember,
All I'm offering is the truth.
Nothing more."-
administer.

Input/output carrier signal disruption.
Static. Zero.
Wake up.
