Flash forward to the present day. Sleepy is on his way home from his hip job as a programmer. He likes it well enough, or actually, he doesn't really like it. He encounters a radical street activist who attempts to engage him in conversation about the pressing issues of the day.

Lyrics

Politicians lie
And the media will hypnotize
It's easy to hypnotize
We gotta see through their disguise

The truth is there to see
And the lessons of history
Can you see it's you and me
We gotta spread democracy

We are WMD's
Setting terrorism free
Be all that you can be
But be afraid to disagree

I've seen you hiding
Behind the starts and stripes
I've heard you using
Their names in vain

Meanwhile we the people are sleeping
Meanwhile, we the people are dreaming
You have to be sleeping
To believe the American dream

Soundbites sent to kill
Our thoughts and all our will
Into our heads they drill
This propaganda, we've had our fill.

I tell ya red and blue is a lie
And they've sold us down the line
The well is running dry
And we feed into the lie

And the ice is melting soon
And we're running out of room
And when we finally learn
Even our money won't cure the burn

You've got two good eyes
What do ya see
Two good ears
What do ya hear

Meanwhile we the people are sleeping
Meanwhile, we the people are dreaming
You have to be sleeping
To believe the American dream

Politicians lie
And the media will hypnotize
It's easy to simplify
We gotta see through their disguise
