​The Network's Going Down

This song is by Carbon/Silicon and appears on the album Western Front (2006).

The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down and it's not backed up
And the hard drive is corrupt

Corporation, thing-isation
Selling me some G.M. Clone
TV media drone
'Cause I think for myself

I don't buy that dumbing-down style section
Build 'em up and knock 'em down
Beautify and watch 'em drown
Human life as info-tainment, I think for myself

The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down and it's not backed up
And the hard drive is corrupt

I don't buy that biochemist D.N.A
Designer baby, enhanced by the scientists
It's a post-human zoo out here, man
'Cause I think for myself

I don't buy that sound-bite photo-op
Channel-filling, sexing it up
Hi definition wants to rock
All the news says, think for myself

And I don't believe what they're telling me
I don't believe what I've been told
I don't believe what they're telling me
I don't believe what I've been told

The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down and it's not backed up
And the hard drive is corrupt

I don't buy that sponsored, branded
Exxon-blasted and assaulted
Upgrade and be seductive
Hypnotizing message, I think for myself

I don't buy that shopping-mall super-store
IKEA made-over living space
Flat-packed Barrat race
You are what you wear 'cause I think for myself

And I don't believe what they're telling me
I don't believe what I've been told
I don't believe what they're telling me
I don't believe what I've been told

I don't buy that dumbing-down style section
Build 'em up and knock 'em down
Beautify and watch 'em drown
Human life as info-tainment, I think for myself

The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down and it's not backed up
And the hard drive is corrupt

Ah
Ah

The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down 'cause I think for myself
The network's going down and they're not backed up
And the hard drive is corrupt

The network's going down and it's not backed up
And the hard drive is corrupt
