‘They Own the Media’: The 10 (5) Craziest Lyrics From Van Morrison’s Latest Album


You know that guy who sang Brown Eyed Girl? Van Morrison? Well he's still around, except he's not writing songs about girls with brown eyes anymore. Instead his lyrics are a goldmine for conspiracy theorists, as he rants about mind control, Facebook, judges who screwed him over, mainstream media, and more! Below are 5 of the craziest lyrics from his latest album, imaginatively titled "Latest Record Project, Vol. 1":

1. “They control everything you do”

They tell us that ignorance is bliss
I guess for those that control the media it is
They own the media, they control the stories we are told…
Believe it all and you’ll never get, nеver get wise
To thе truth, ’cause they control everything you do
Everything you do, everything you do, everything you do


(From “They Own the Media”)

3. “Mind control keeps us in line”

Mind control keeps us in line
That’s why we’ve got to think outside the blind lеading the blind…
Have to police everyone’s mind
Nowadays you have to be careful of everything you say
But it’s all by design


(From “Double Bind”)


5. “Why are you on Facebook?”

Why are you on Facebook?
Why do you need second-hand friends?
Why do you really care who’s trending?
Or is there something you’re defending?…
Are you looking for a scapegoat to blame?
Because you’re a failure time and time again


(From “Why Are You on Facebook?”)

7. “You’re too lazy to go out and work”

Gave you a million Euros
Said that it wasn’t enough
How come when you’re still fit and able
You’re too lazy to go out and work


(From “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished”)

10. “Stop bitching”

Stop bitching, do something
Stop bitching, stop bitching right now
Stop bitching, stop bitching right now
Stop bitching, stop bitching right now


(from “Stop Bitching, Do Something”)
