Generation Y Machine


Try not become anxious or nervous
Dwelling on important social issues
Relax until you lose all the focus
As we slowly lose our democratic rights

Pacify all your mental resistance
with an endless supply of excitement
more games on your Iphones appliances
reviewing twitter for social endearment

Who cares about genocide in Sudan
or the fascist escalation in Greece
When you can play hard to getting a new I-Pad
Spending all the time on Assassins Creed

Rest now in your lazy-boy incliner
Drinking audio-visual soma
That elevates reticence for awhile
Putting all that resistance into a coma

Condition yourself to the inevitable
Under watchful eyes of the soft machine Live by reducing your humanity
As a Face book fanatical subroutine

Now you are the master of your slavery
Pretend that you’re an independent being
Addicted to purchasing more edify toys
Like a good Generation Y Machine
