The Lyrics

You are trapped in a prison
one you can't see or feel
It's in control of you
It's in control of you

all around, it's in all
paying taxes or when nature calls.
When nature calls,
It's in control of you

Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for
Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for

Now the question's on your lips
as you ask "What is the Matrix?"
it burns inside you
like you're being lied to.

I have spoken in the tongue of fables
as you've guessed, I like to ramble
I could sound deep all night
but it's time to go home

Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for
Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for

See two pills in my hand
Blue- you stay in wonderland
You'll understand
Where the rabbit hole's going

Take the red one and you
keep the chains.
Wake up tomorrow,
stay the same
stay the same
You'll think you believe it

Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for
Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for
Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for
Take this pill and you've found what you're looking for

Pretty good song. Can't wait for Revolutions.

This one wasn't meant to be particularly funny, I just wanted to get the famous scene from the first movie and map it to a song.

I've never even seen any of the Matrix movies, nor am I about to, but this was funny. And I can't wait for the revolution either... less than one year to go... But that's not the one you're talking about, but Georgie probably can't understand this one, either.

I saw this yesterday. Still haven't seen the second movie but I saw the first. Congrats, Steve, for getting a (gasp) GOOD song stuck in my head today! You win the Golden Deck!

You got it backwards. The RED pill was the one to stay and wonderland. The BLUE pill was the one to keep the chains.
