there’s a war going on for your mind lyrics – flobots

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 p*ssenger pigeons deploy paratroopers
now it’s raining p*rnography
lovers take shelter
post-production debutantes pursue you in nascar chariots

they construct ransom letters from biblical p*ssages and bleed mascara into the holy water

there’s a war going on for your mind

industry insiders slang test tube babies to corporate crack heads
they flash logos and blast ghettos
their embroidered neckties say “stop st*tching”
conscious rappers and whistle blowers get st*tches made of acupuncture needles and marionette

there is a war going on for your mind

professional wrestlers and vice presidents want you to believe them
the desert sky is their blue screen
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

/ flobots lyrics
