Mezmerize (2005 4 years ago It’s pretty clear to me that this song is basically against television, but mainly against the evils of big corporations/commercialism (constant references to Nabisco and the comparison of violent pornography to television [The kind of shit you get on your TV]). That, coupled with other lines makes me believe this song is also about how the public is being apathetic about the whole thing (“non-stop disco” makes me think they’re trying to say that everyone is just having a good time without worry).
Klavius 947 3 years ago As with a lot of System’s lyrics – it’s often hard to pin down what their specific meaning is (and that is if it’s only one, there are often several). I personally didn’t see it as being about violent pornography, but something more metaphorical. I would view it as the way media companies sensationalise everything and support aggressive capitalism is the “real” violent pornography.
Considering the Iraq War was in full swing, I would argue that it’s about the way news and advertising is no different from pornography, and people take pleasure in watching war and capitalist advertising (the reference to food company Nabisco is a really interesting one). The irony for me is that the news and media coverage is actually more damaging than pornography, yet everyone is happy to watch it and decry any sort of pornography at all.
