This is now

It is nearly 30 years since the prophetic song Television, the Drug of the Nation was released. Since then what’s changed?

One nation under God
Has turned into
One nation under the influence of one drug

Television, the drug of the nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

TV it satellite links our United States of Unconsciousness
Apathetic, therapeutic and extremely addictive
The methadone metronome pumping out 150 channels, 24 hours a day
You can flip through all of them and still there’s nothing worth watching
TV is the reason why less than 10 per cent of our nation reads books daily
Why most people think Central America means Kansas
Socialism means unamerican and apartheid is a new headache remedy
Absorbed in its world, it’s so hard to find us
It shapes our mind the most
Maybe the mother of our nation should remind us that we’re sitting too close to…

Television, the drug of the nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

TV is the stomping ground for political candidates
Where bears in the woods are chased by Grecian formula bald eagles
TV is mechanized politics remote control over the masses
Co-sponsored by environmentally safe gases watch for the PBS special
It’s the perpetuation of the two party system
Where image takes precedence over wisdom
Where sound bite politics are served to the fast-food culture
Where straight teeth in your mouth
Are more important than the words that what comes out of it
Race baiting is the way to get selected
Willie Horton or will he not get elected on…

Television, the drug of the nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

TV, is it the reflector or the director?
Does it imitate us or do we imitate it?
Because a child watches 1500 murders before he’s twelve years old
And we wonder why we’ve created a Jason generation that learns to laugh
Rather than to abhor the horror
TV is the place where armchair generals and quarterbackscan experience first-hand the excitement of warfare
As the theme song is sung in the background
Sugar sweet sitcoms that leave us with a bad actor taste
While pop stars metamorphize into soda pop stars
You saw the video, you heard the soundtrack, now go buy the soft drink
Well, the only cola that I support, would be a union COLA (Cost Of Living Allowance)

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

Back again, ‘New and improved’
we return to our irregularly programmed schedule
Hidden cleverly between heavy breasted beer and car commercials
CNNESPNABCTNT but mostly BS
Where oxymoronic language like
‘virtually spotless’
‘fresh frozen’
‘light yet filling’ and
‘military intelligence’
have become standard
TV is the place where phrases are redefined
Like ‘recession’ to ‘necessary downturn’
‘Crude oil’ on a beach to ‘mousse’
‘Civilian death’ to ‘collateral damage’
And being killed by your own Army
is now called ‘friendly fire’
TV is the place where the pursuit
of happiness has become the pursuit of trivia
Where toothpaste and cars have become sex objects
Where imagination is sucked out of children by a cathode ray nipple
TV is the only wet nurse that would create a cripple

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation
