Keep This World

Should I keep this world or not? I’ve thought about a lot…

About TV and what I read, and how it makes me feel the need

To be dramatic, more than static, make my life more automatic

Get the newest, latest gadget, keepin’ up and keepin’ at it

Think I’ve really really had it, oh it keeps me on my knees

 

It’s all about control

Watch the screen; do as your told.

It’s all about control

This scripted world is getting old.

 

Should I keep this world or not?  What have I really got?

So shut up about your feelings – they’re not yours they’ll do no healing

Ever notice you compare what you think, what you wear

To channel 7 or 11 or a congregation’s heaven

Got your profile down, those files downloaded so your friends can quote it

 

It’s all about control

Watch the screen; do as your told.

It’s all about control

This scripted world is getting old.

 

It’s all about control…
