Misinformation Age (Part III of ‘Mastermind’)

Posted in Lyrics, Poetry at Rest on July 20th, 2010

Multi-media mayhem making mazes of minds
Cultivating confusion, captivating all kinds
Feeding ‘feeling frenzies’ for faux fanciful finds
Breeding brains for banalities and the bunk that binds

Park yourself in the armchair
Shift your intellect to neutral
Prepare for the next transmission
That pulls you into overdrive

To see conspiracy where it’s not
And no conspiracy where it is
The point is just to point and click
To keep every rumor alive!

Right or wrong it’s still your right
So express your rage
Freedom of the pressed
They come to set your stage
And fence you in for security
Then they rattle your cage
Because everyone knows everything
In the Misinformation Age

From the red letter office
A caps lock lockdown in progress
A deluge of delusions
With a font overflowing with urgency

React from the conditioning
To this chain of splitting hairs
Out with the old into your inbox
And back out to spread its misery

Right or wrong it’s still your right
So express your rage
Freedom of the pressed
They come to set your stage
And fence you in for security
Then they rattle your cage
Because everyone’s an actor
On the Misinformation Stage

But truth is more than an altered state of mind
And seeing is more than just not being blind
