Can you handle the lyrics, or do I have to write it out in braille and shove it up your ass?

(Song Lyrics)

Open Your Eyes (1982)

Video games train the kids for war
Army chic in high-fashion stores
Law and order's done their job
Prisons filled while the rich still rob
Assassination politics
Violence rules within' our nation's midst
Well ignorance is their power tool
You'll only know what they want you to know
The television cannot lie
Controlling media with smokescreen eyes
Nuclear politicians picture show
The acting's lousy but the blind don't know

Open your eyes
See the lies right in front of ya
Open your eyes

They scare us all with threats of war
So we forget just how bad things are
You taste the fear when you're all alone
They gonna git'cha when you're on your own
The silence of conspiracy
Slaughtered on the altar of apathy
You gotta wake up from your sleep
'Cause meek inherits earth six feet deep

Open your eyes see the lies right in front of ya
Open your eyes

Songwriters: Stephen J. Bator Jr. / Brian James

Steven John Bator 
aka: Stiv Bators
Born: October 22, 1949, Youngstown, OH
Died: June 4, 1990, Paris, France
Ran down and over by a taxi cab in Paris, France...
In mid-1990, Bators died in Paris after being hit by a car. He was taken to a hospital but reportedly left before seeing a doctor, after waiting several hours and assuming he was not injured. Reports indicate that he died in his sleep as the result of a traumatic brain injury. Dave Tregunna said that Bators, a fan of rock legend Jim Morrison, had earlier requested that his ashes be spread over Morrison's Paris grave and that his girlfriend complied. Too much truth not to get murdered..., R.I.P. Steven!
