An american tradition

talks shows vomiting morality
black fridays spewing totality
as long as you walk out alive
with your new hdtv
riot for your piece of plastic
riot for piece of technology
riot for your piece of shit
deny your basic biology
pray to your god
the disposable king
get down on your holy leggings
and skinny jeans
yield to your new idol
and its sophomoric glow
pursue its message
focus your energy
focus your chi
towards your mecca
your holyland
the superstore temple
listen to the 30 second priest
and bring your coupons to church
so you can do it all again
to get a cheap glance into heaven
