The Spectacle

Hurry hurry hurry step right up step right up
Come see the exhibition of human oddities
Marvel at human weakness and indignity
Congratulate yourself on your moral superiority
To the truly desperate and wretched

If the medium is the message
Then the medium is the spectacle

Step right up folks
We’ve got: sad clowns and mad clowns
Burlesque queens and striptease teens
Bottle blonds with giant silicon balloons
Drug addled celebrities begging for self-validation
Ex-rock stars pimping a herpes tainted harem
We’ve got: Morality juggling acrobatic narcissists
The winner of the pig vagina eating competition
And of course the girl who shits on the stairs!

If the medium is the message
Then the medium is the spectacle

When the going gets weird the weird turn pro
When the going gets weirder
The weird get their contracts renewed
When the going gets weirdest
It means we got a brand new show

Step right up and bring the whole family
The kids will marvel at the world we’ve made for them
We’ve got: mothers and fathers who fail to act as moms and dads
Housewives leading lives of noisy desperation
Men greedily devouring the objects of desire we’ve taught them to desire
Everything is on display and in your face
They have no shame, so nor should you

If the medium is the message
Then the medium is the freak show

When the going gets weird the weird turn pro
When the going gets weirder
The weird get their contracts renewed
When the going gets weirder
It means we got a brand new show

That bloody medium
Yep. Pretty much. It resonates all too strongly. I feel no shame for myself, but I am ashamed. Brilliant work. The music is heavier and darker than usual, and I like it very much. Impressive vocal delivery.

At least you can still feel shame Reggie. That's a sign that civilization will survive despite the boob tube.
