Chapter IV: Sex and TV

They wait for instructions to kick off their day. The codes in the colours to program the way. Automatic ones who look just like me and you. So follow me now, we’ve got what you need. We want you.

Curing emotion with sex and TV. Gotta face this illusion that’s keeping us free. We’re bound to machines for an upside down frown till we all fall down.

They wander the city like ants in a maze. In blissful confusion prescribed by the state. And the less they all knew the more content they all grew. So follow me now, we’ve got what you need. We want you.

Strange how you were curiously numb till you were standing at the edge of night. Say you knew; say you don’t believe it’s true. Doctor will you cleanse my mind.

They sit by their fires; raise a toast to their day. Connect to the wires and upload their fates. Don’t be scared, we hear you. Your transmission’s approved. So follow me now… we’ve got what we need. You.
