There's A War Going On For Your Mind
Flobots Lyrics

There's a war going on for your mind
Media mavens mount surgical strikes from trapper keeper collages and online magazine racks
Cover girl cutouts throw up pop-up ads
Infecting victims with silicone shrapnel
Worldwide passenger pigeons deploy paratroopers
Now it's raining pornography
Lovers take shelter
Post-production debutantes pursue you in Nascar chariots
They construct ransom letters from Biblical passages and bleed mascara into the holy water supplies

There's a war going on for your mind

Industry insiders slang test tube babies to corporate crack heads
They flash logos and blast ghettos
Their embroidered neckties say "Stop Snitching"
Conscious rappers and whistle blowers get stitches made of acupuncture needles and marionette strings

There is a war going on for your mind

Professional wrestlers and vice presidents want you to believe them
The desert sky is their blue screen
They superimpose explosions
They shout at you
"Pay no attention to the men behind the barbed curtain
Nor the craters beneath the draped flags
Those hoods are there for your protection
And meteors these days are the size of corpses"

There's a war going on for your mind

We are the insurgents

TL;DR: good work guys and good luck.

i love you guys...whatever your names are. i'll call you "flobots". flobots, you get us. you understand...but when you have a website, you're part of that....whatever that beautiful prosody was...what was it? that "media" something or other. Flobots, welcome to the machine. Flobots, You ARE the media and i'm sorry: insurgents don't have websites.

apologies for all the mis-spells. 🙏 keep fighting the good fight. even if it's a fight being fought with "The Mans" weapons...fuckin' internet info-bubble brain-washing is what i call it personally....but i suppose you can't avoid getting trapped in an info-bubble these days.

This is still one of my go-to albums. Such an intense record

It didn't even occur to me that this was uploaded during Mid-term elections... Even more relevant today.


Dude but forreal. The most underrated album of perhaps that entire decade

God, this has never been more true than now. The war for your mind only grows stronger.

Alexandre Larocque

Still one of my favorites. Years ago back in highschool we were doing a poetry contest and could put a song in the background as we read our rhymes. I chose this and stated there was a war going on for our minds before starting my verses.

ok sure no one really cared but those who listened understood and that was all i asked for.

Blake Elledge

That sounds DOPE bro 👌 Niiiiiice one


Wish they made this a full song.


You guys are an inspiration to anyone with a conscious mind. You heavily influenced my style of writing.
