THERE’S A WAR GOING ON FOR YOUR MIND

Album: FIGHT WITH TOOLS 2007

there’s a war going on for your mind

media mavens mount surgical strikes from trapper keeper collages and online magazine racks

cover girl cutouts throw up pop-up ads

infecting victims with silicone shrapnel

worldwide passenger pigeons deploy paratroopers

now it’s raining pornography

lovers take shelter

post-production debutantes pursue you in nascar chariots

they construct ransom letters from biblical passages and bleed mascara into holy water supplies

there’s a war going on for your mind

industry insiders slang test tube babies to corporate crackheads

they flash logos and blast ghettos

their embroidered neckties say “stop snitchin’”

conscious rappers and whistleblowers get stitches made of acupuncture needles and marionette strings

there is a war going on for your mind

professional wrestlers and vice presidents want you to believe them

the desert sky is their bluescreen

they superimpose explosions

they shout at you

“pay no attention to the men behind the barbed curtain

nor the craters beneath the draped flags

those hoods are there for your protection

and meteors these days are the size of corpses

there’s a war going on for your mind

we are the insurgents

Album – Fight With Tools – 2007
