The girl on the computer says I look so good today
That it hurts for her to even look away
The boy on the commercial knows I’m lonely now and then
But for a reasonable price I could pretend

The person on the pamphlet says the country needs my hands
And they will keep my future safely in command
The movement on the water says there’s more to life than me
But I go back to watching my T.V.

They are trying to kill you

You’ve been warned

You say it’s complicated, it seems simple to me
You’re lashing out because you’re right where I need you to be
You’re so close but so close isn’t quiet there
I can see it in your eyes, you’re scared

You’ve been warned

The information is a drug
You’re too scared to pull the plug
Feels like you’ll never get enough
The information is a drug

You’ve been warned.

(Lyrics by James McCurley)
