Sod is in the T.V.

Their trying to tell you something,
It’s being shown on the screen,
It’s being told in music, ding ding,
But you were indoctrinated by thirteen.

Mtv shows you Masonic ritual,
Flashing symbols in your third eye,
Leave you in crisis, needing spiritual hospital,
You’ve had an overdose of an intoxicating lie!

It’s time to break the spell, turn off the T.V.
With all its degrading, intoxicated role models,
How anyone finds this acceptable for children, spent on me,
Maybe this is why society is fuelled by self gratifying morals.

    TV, I agree, while I don't watch it, seems to flash about more info then we see. When I do watch... I do see something that fuzzys me. :) I met a man at the hotel who showed us the three card trick... 'find the queen of hearts' he said. While he won the dollar from everyone else ... I seem to not even have to watch those cards to win his dollar... he couldn't figure me out. :) xo

    I think 13 gets a 'bad wrap' sometimes... we are endeared to it the same as the 12 and 24. ... besides, I'm born on 13 ;)~
