Gullible


The people of this nation; gullible they are
Intoxicated, brainwashed; high off of a delusional myrrh.
Oh it was on the news! It must be true.
Another death, another robber, another crime the broadcasters spew.
Our laws are completely reasonable they say.
Oh yeah? Why are you treated like a criminal then?
Whatever media portrays, they believe.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who believe they are free. (From quote by Goethe)
Free to make their own decisions in this world of make believe.
Well check for the story the media covers up.
It's in the dark, but it's somewhere in this rough.
