Media Slave

Media Slave

I offer myself to your cultural network
I don’t know much about you but you intrigue me
I’m new to your world but I want to do my best
So the wider world can know your story

There’s so much about you that’s special to me
I just want to do what’s best for you
I’m not interested in credit or recognition
I just want the world to know the genius within you
The genius within you

You’re enchanted and transfixed by my innocence
Though I’ve never been one for seduction
You shower and bombard me with compliments
I’m fair game for your exploitation

My harmless nature is your newest plaything
Your friendship with me your new status boost
I’m a single clean slate you can soil as you wish
I’ll ignore the alarm when the compliments start sounding false
When the compliments start sounding false

You take me under your wing, I’m your latest project
You work with Corinthian precision
One step closer to the establishment
You pimp me out as your main mission

The friendly smiles resemble the carnival masks
I don’t know who’s real and who’s false anymore
I’m regretting coming here but it’s too late to turn back
My virtual self is too large for the world to ignore
Too large for the world to ignore

My purposes have all been erased
My every action serves your needs
I knew what I was doing but I had no free will
I swam with the fish, I got mistaken for one
I swam with the sharks…
I’m meat

I was the only way you could strengthen your hold
You could never pretend you adored me
Your parasites cling to my body like glue
They sold me out and flawed me
My Mephistopheles presented me
With the key to his underworld
Found no better satisfaction
Than corrupting a country girl

I was the only source of strength for you
You could never pretend you adored me
I paid the price of my soul to be with you
You sold me out and flawed me
I was the only source of strength for you
You could never pretend you adored me
I paid the price of my soul to be part of you
You overestimated the flaws of me
