BOOB TUBE

That nefarious television will kill ya

That damn boob tube

Kill your mind

Kill your time

Kill your soul.

It's on from early morning

Until late at night

Stealing your mind

Stealing your time

Stealing your soul

Sex, Lies, Videotapes

Propaganda spews from its face

Blanketing its lies all over the place

With no regard for the human race

Stealing your mind

Stealing your time

Stealing your soul

Canned news, wacky sitcoms, reality shows

What's real about them?

We know it's sensationalistic and sometimes scripted

Fifteen minutes of fame

And they think they're in the game

Nip& Tuck,

Nip & Tuck,

Nip & Tuck

Up watching into the wee hours of the night

Eyes so tired that the blood in them burns bright

Eyes fluttering shut and snapping open

Eyes unable to open early in the morning.

Boob tube

Zapping your creativity

Zapping your ability to function

Zapping your life.

Watching that thing from dusk Ôtil dawn

It's like a blood-thirsty vampire

Just waiting for the right time to strike

Waiting for the dark of the night

Looking for sympathy for its baby in a dumpster

Looking for sympathy for its murdered Mother, Father, daughter, son, friend

Looking for sympathy for its trumped up lies.

It's not a good news boob tube

No, it's not a good news boob tube

Not a good news boob tube by any stretch of the imagination

It's enough to try your patience.

Shut it off!, throw it out the window

Smash it to smithereens

Better yet, just don't turn it on.

Save your mind

Save your time

Save your soul.
