    The meaning I get out of it is that life is like a violent pornography, cause everyone's getting fucked up the ass.

    Ok well first comes first; lets consider that the system of a downs message in mezmerize is the war. Then lets consider that not too long before this album was made, the whole thing in that prisoner camp happened. Our soldiers took pictures, and made movies of pow's nude. Such as the pornography on the tv. They acomplished this in a violent manner. So please no more garbage interpretations.

    I agree with the idea that this song is about the violence and sex in the media. Although one line in the song that has confused me about this song for awhile and I haven't seen mentioned here is the "non-stop disco" lines. Now that I think about it, this seems like a reference to MTV who (at least they used to) plays non-stop music videos.

    I believe that this song is putting down TV shows that use sex to help huge corporations make money and to line the executives of the shows pockets. It talks about how we are desensitized to sex and violence.

    People suck these days, sex is rampant, everyone is depressed for some reason, and a lot of people are dying (everybody sucks/fucks/cries/dies). Everyone also doesn't really care (non-stop disco) and giant companies (Nabisco) are helping the above happen behind the scenes (betcha didn't know). This is all because of TV, which has been degenerated to nothing better than violent pornography (chorus). It is brainwashing the masses (can you say brainwashing) and you should "turn off the TV".

    I think that it's about the content shown on television,media,ads,.etc and how it brainwashes people and gives them a completely different mentality and viewpoints of things.

    This is so simple. OK we all fuck so don't look at someone as a slut because feels like fucking. We all have something about us that sucks so don't criticize it because you suck in at least one facet of your life as well. We are all people and there is at least one thing wrong with all of us so don't talk about other peoples' fallibility because you have flaws to. Simple

    It is also meant to be funny and does a good job at to.

    This song interprets that the things that are being watched on Television are valued as the same concept of a pornography, they hold the same amount of violence and that each wants to brainwash your brains with your cocks that trick you to do anything to obtain the pleasure towards your brain which is gross and bad.

    I think it's just a song trying to be funny. I don't think the meaning is as deep as everyone here thinks. Everyone I know just thinks its a funny song. Also "sucks" doesn't have anything to do with being sad it's just relating to sex.

    I think it's glaringly obvious: It's about vulgar media corruption of the masses. There're lyrics all throughout the song that suggest that.

    Well I think this song is about "the kinda shit you get on your t.V". Basically, lol.
    Their probably jus stating a fact that their is a lot of crap, 'violent pornography', on t.V. These days.
    "non-stop disco.." meaning the crap that's shown, doesn't stop.
    And its true, it does brainwash a few people. "can you say brainwashing?" I can! :d

    The songs loosely based around porn on the tv, but as a few other people have said, about things being as bad as "violent pornography".

    "choking chicks and sodomy" is a graphic explanation of the "violent" porn readily availabe on the tv and net.

    It's true! It "brainwashes" us! Think about what watching murders, rapes, sex and shit on tv/the net does to your head. It numbs your head to it and you get used to seeing it. Sick.

    "everybody fucks/sucks" everybody basically appeals to sex. So its saying everyones so crazy for money that they'll do crazy things to get it- i.E. Crazy sex. "its a nonstop disco"- its nonstop madness. "bet you its nabisco bet you didn't know"- companies to get money to save their buisnesses undercover doing crazy porn. Using nabisco- kids snacks company- to prove it.

    This song is about how society is brainwashing us to all become the same, and anything is acceptable in this shitty society.

    I thought that this song was about brain washing people thru porn . I thought that the gov or the media or whatever was brain washing people through porn. I guess that they chose porn because so many people watch it and that's how they get more people. I guess that they brain wash them to go to war, I dunno, I got that from the violent part of the title. "turn off your T.V."
