Letter to the Editor

lyrics

Gonna write a letter to the editor
because I’ve got some things I’d like to say
about the problems with the public transportation
and something about that poor lost little whale.

Gonna write a letter to the editor.
Gonna tell you people what I think.
I am going to fill up your inbox with unwanted messages
just by clicking on this hyperlink.

Gonna write a letter to Mcluhan
because I think he might have made a small mistake.
When you wrote about the importance of television,
I think you meant the internet instead.

Look it up on the internet.
We’re so into our inner net.
Important signs signing meaning –
deferential layering.
We make meaning mean.
We make mean meaning.
Meaning makes us mean.
Meaning means we make.

Cell phones getting smaller and smaller every single year –
it won’t be much longer ‘til they're implanted right inside your ear.
Cell phones getting smaller and smaller every single year.
Then we will have telepathy.
Then, I/you will know just what you/I think.
Microchips implanted in your brain.
Microchips implanted in your brain.
It won’t be much longer ‘til they're implanted right inside your ear.
