Subliminal Prison

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

Subliminal messages driving me insane
I can't seem to stop them from entering my brain

When they send me their messages it's loud and clear
I wonder how it's possible others can't hear

I am the main target they're directed at me
I'm not paranoid if you look close you will see

Words to a puzzle that have been carefully placed
Answers they discovered as my life has been traced

They know all my habits the preferences I hold
If they push the right buttons they know I'll be sold

The smart phone they sold me is one of many tools
I keep playing their game without knowing the rules

I'm feeling helpless a little out of control
Subliminal messages attacking my soul

Time to reconsider what's important to me
Then I can break away and become truly free
