Updated on July 15, 2013 little said.

Flashy smile...pretend to care.

Masks of color on the screen.

Turn away? you don't dare.

Truth...truth...wrapped in lies.

Pretty picture...they paint it well.

Convince you of what you know.

This is real...can't you tell? the chains.

Answer nicely...just nod your head.

Now you're told what's going on.

From the've been fed.'re still blind.

Propaganda...up on the shelf.

Breaking free of the old way.

Clear of yourself.
