The Lyrics

We should 'a seen it comin'
When Bush was in, they sprung
Invasion of our phone calls,
Privacy was flung
We're stuck in Fooled-Some Prism
Big Brother's edgin' on
And our rights keep a' rollin'
Right out the window, blown

When Freedom was a baby
Forefathers told us, Sons
Democracy is precious
Our creed won't be undone
But just like Janet Reno,
In Waco, let folks die,
Richard Nixon's Watergate'n
Our rights are gone, bye, bye

I'll bet rich folks aren't bothered
In their fancy limo'd cars
It's just us coffee drinkers,
Invasion, it's all ours
You'll soon hear your phone hummin'
Becuz' of bugs, there'll be
Guess we're all terror suspects,
It's "Gitmo" digit'lly

They'll never free us from this Prism
Albatross is yours and mine
Just tips of bigger icebergs
Will unsubmerge and climb..
We're in Fooled-Some Prism
And here we're doomed to stay
News hounds can blow the whistle,
But it won't go away

Nice title switch, AFW, and a nice take on modern snooping. Those (deleted) (redacted) really (deleted) (deleted)(removed for national security concerns)(not fit for public consumption) off.

This is a perfect analogy and execution, AFW! I haven't discovered what the acronym PRISM stands for, so here's my guess: Privacy Rights Invaded by Secret Monitoring.

even the upcoming "XBox 1" is going to be spying on you whether the system is on or not just ask my brother he decided against getting one because of that 5's
