Slit the neck and slip the chip in, sipping anti-governmental zombie grog
But zombied up gladly on your Swiss Army watch
As if twitching upon your authored condition's
Really that different from administered conditioning glitches
You go out and drink and answer to no one, and feel independent, but your wristwatch tells you when to leave.
Your independence is an illusion, it’s easy to oppose obvious conformity and to rebel to feel self-satisfied, but it’s tough to realize that there are more basic, subtler values implanted in us which we follow.
As CAKE puts it:
“Excess ain’t rebellion / You’re drinking what they’re selling”
