Open your eyes and turn off your mind
Step right up folks and you will find
A growing trend, an epidemic
Spread with Zen and hypodermics

Just close your mind
You can find all you need with your eyes

The big machines take care of you
Until you kill yourself
And then the sales go through the roof
Calculated, formulated

Feed my head with simple thoughts
Let me breathe instead of being taught
All bottled up and tearing at the seams
I'm bored Just let me breathe

A daily dose of MTV
Will flush your mind right down the drain
Shannon Hoon and Kurt Cobain
Make yourself a household name

Just close your mind
You can find all you need with your eyes

The big machines take care of you
Until you kill yourself
And then the sales go through the roof
Calculated, formulated

Feed my head with simple thoughts
And let me breathe instead of being taught
All bottled up and tearing at the seams
I'm bored Just let me breathe

Strike up your best angst ridden posture
Manufactured anger
Let's not forget my legacy
All my heroes have failed me
Now they're dead and buried

Just close your mind
You can find all you need with your eyes

The big machines will take care of you
Until the fashion fades and the checks go through
My bankroll's red and my face is blue
And still they'll turn their backs on me for someone new

Feed my head with some real thoughts
And let me think instead of being taught
I'll say things you won't believe
Just stand back, just let me breathe
