This neon world is too much for me.
It's a world of fast food commercials,
and fireworks displays.
It's a new world that masks realities.
"Everything is gonna' be alright",
is the war-cry of insanity.
This carnival is non-stop,
with pom-pom girls,
and reality shows that are unreal.
The book stores are closing.
Art sales are down.
Ronald McDonald is still America's clown.
So does Walmart, Starbucks, and Taco Bell.
It's fourth and one.
A mere ten seconds is left in the game.
The home team is on its own five-yard line.
Ain't it a shame?
Education's not funded.
Intellectualism is dead.
The neon world is stuck in our heads.
So let me live my virtual life.
Soon I might have an adroid wife.
Sunrises and sunsets will be viewed on a screen.
Outdoor activities, only a dream.
From birth to the grave a neon haze.
Lordy, I long for the "good-old" days.
