Sleepy, now greatly confused after his conversation with the activist, is experiencing an intense amount of cognitive dissonance. He cannot take this challenge to his world view, precisely because it seems to make so much sense and turn what he had thought previously about the world on it's head. He can't process it and goes home to watch TV and plug into the lie. Rather that resist, Sleepy gives in.

Lyrics

All the dirty hippies
And the filthy punker children
Are climbing down from their ladders
To the stars

They're finding newer dwellings
Closer to the ground
They're trading their fears
For security this time

Strong emotions, fueling revolution
Stop on a dime
New age old solutions
Forced fed lies

Digging earth, growing lives
Masks, faces, and illusion
Growing pains, maturity
Force fed society

Why don't you lie to me
Tell me what I want to hear
Why don't you lie to me
Tell me what I need to know
Again and again
Again and again

Staying up one night very late
Flipping through the TV stations
Found a channel where they sell
The name of your generation

In the new age
In the new world
What can one person do
Living through the ghosts inside the tube

Why don't you lie to me
Tell me what I want to hear
Why don't you lie to me
Tell me what I need to know
Again and again
Again and again

What is going on
I don't even know
But I think I care
Does it even matter anymore?
The circle is fading

What is going on
I don't even know
But I think I care
Does it even matter anymore
The circle is fading
