Of Media & State

After Y2K, the computer virus entered our bloodstream
The internet highway gave the meek a chance to prove
they are no different to the scum they criticise
The ignorant shall inherit the earth, indeed

Is it fashionable to be individual? As long as everyone else is
then you have nothing to feel alienated about
Since when have stereotypes become the archetype?
The media has proven this world is culturally dead

New Labour’s red rose stabbed into the heart of the working man
Nameless peer given lordship, crime rises in the land of the commoners
Laws of prison interchangeable with that of a nursery
while the victims feel nothing from depersonalization

The End
