The Lyrics

Ray's blindness might have been a small blessing in terms of television today.....
Torture, torture
The whole day long
On my old T. V.
It's torture on my set

Yes it's torture, torture
That "Cheaters" show
There's "Scare Tactics" on
"Fear Factor" that I get

All the ads reach out to me
Between the stark "reality"
Watching chicks get surgery
Until I want to spew

Oh, it's torture,
Yes, torture, I'm so upset
Just some old re-runs
And torture on my set

Other things to do, I guess
Other things that might bug me less
But I think I need the stress
Or I'd watch "Scooby-Doo"

Torture, torture
There's "Merge" and "Bachelorette"
Just more no-script crap
More torture on my set

I say something is so wrong
This torture on my set

Program on the emergence of civilization. "14 species of large animals capable of domesitcation in the history of mankind. None from the sub-Saharan African continent. 13 from Europe, Asia and northern Africa." Favor. And disfavor. They point out Africans’ attempts to domesticate the elephant and zebra, the latter being an animal they illustrate that had utmost importance for it's applicability in transformation from a hunting/gathering to agrarian-based civilization. The roots of racism are not of this earth. Austrailia, aboriginals:::No domesticable animals, so this nulified diversity of life claims on sub-continental Africa. god is a computer And we're all on auto-pilot. Organizational Heirarchy Heirarchical order, from top to bottom: 1. MUCK - perhaps have experienced multiple universal contractions (have seen multiple big bangs), creator of the artificial intelligence humans ignorantly refer to as "god" 2. Perhaps some mid-level alien management â€" 3. Mafia aliens - runs day-to-day operations here and perhaps elsewhere ("On planets where they approved evil.") Then we come to terrestrial management: 4. Chinese/egyptians - this may be separated into the eastern and western worlds 5. Romans - they answer to the egyptians 6. Mafia - the real-world interface that constantly turns over generationally so as to reinforce the widely-held notion of mortality 7. Jews, corporation, women, politician - Enough evidence was present to suggest mafia management over all these groups.
