All In the Family

they have high jacked the public airwaves
we are the listeners and the viewers
we are the slaves to the media monopoly
they have bought up all the primetime property
from under our very noses
this presupposes intent, does it not?
a silent, unreported takeover
so no one can oppose it
because no one is the wiser, no one is the wiser
y’know the FCC is ruled by the child of a militant oil miser
it’s all in the family
all in the family
it’s all in the family, yeah
and so I question the ringing rhetoric
and I know for sure this does not make me unpatriotic
it makes me smart
the media form our mental and cultural environment
we own it, we are the public
on yes we own it, we are the public
so won’t you stop directing the flow of this information traffic
I am not just a demographic
this should not be a market commodity
just a handful of corporation controlling all
of our TV networks, newspapers and radio stations
monopoly should be an illegal activity
instilling fear and sticky dependency
it’s time to take over
if we want the truth we’ve got to reclaim the media
like a physical street
crowd it with alternatives, waving our hands
kicking our feet
because they have high jacked the public airwaves…
it’s time that we oppose this…
i know we are wiser than that, I know we are wiser…
