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


T.V. is the place where phrases are redefined
Like "recession" to "necessary downturn"
"Crude oil" on a beach to "mousse"
"Civilian death" to "collateral damages"
And being killed by your own Army
Is now called "friendly fire"

--"Television, the Drug of the Nation" (1992) by The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy
