Perception Management

from Cranial Indiscretions by Johan Ess



Perception Management

psychotronic penetration
data process simulation
undercover operation
redirecting information

wave hello to your behavior analyst
undetectable sabotage works better than a fist
eyes are open and observe all they can see
just look at what they've done to you and me

Perception Management

I am the by-product of your toxic mind control
I am just a product to be packaged, tagged and sold
Subject me to your paralyzing sugar coated lies
Revise my mental history to silence all my cries

My freedom is nothing but a delusion
My speech is the mouthpiece of confusion
My expression is a form of pollution
I'm a slave to the human institution

Do you want it? Do you need it?
Do you like my mnemonic device?
Don't you want it? Don't you need it?
Don't you love my mnemonic device?

artificial without flesh
surveillance in the geomesh
brute-force encryption cyberhack
consumer terrorist attack

kiss your mind goodbye, it's time to go to sleep
atone for your transgressions before you get too deep
disrobe and kneel before them, you're naked and exposed
the final chapter of your freedom has come to a close

Perception Management

I have been upgraded and I stay in the same mode
I am automatic and now operate on code
Command me to obliterate as though it were my Will
Delete my sense of conscience and then send me out to kill

My free will is nothing but an illusion
My thoughts are somewhat prone to substitution
My mind resists any kind of evolution
I'm no longer the problem. I’m the solution.

The end goal is mind-control
The end goal is to kill your soul
The end goal is mind-control
The end goal is Perception Management!
