BackgroundEdit

Case Two; Part One

“Alright, is this thing working?”

He took a few steps back, fumbling over stray cables. From somewhere within the house, he could faintly hear his own voice projecting through the living room television set.
“Kennith?” The muffled voice of his mother shouted. “Kenntih, what the hell are you doing in there?” He snickered, “I’m assuming we’re on! Well, here goes nothing.” With the flick of a switch, COLORBARS was live. An intricate pattern of vivid, pulsating colors was projected onto a chroma key backdrop behind him. Accompanying the visuals were finely-tuned frequencies, blasted through the sound system at such a high volume it’d be impossible to hear one’s own thoughts. He spoke into the microphone; a cheap, broken model he found and patched up from an electronics store.
“Can you still hear me? Wait, hold up,” he slipped out of the camera’s view for a few seconds to fiddle with the audio mix. “Here, let’s try something: Scream as loud as you can if you can hear me.” The neighborhood roared with the voices of it’s residents, and Kennith burst into a fit of laughter. “It worked! Oh my fucking god, it worked!” He took a moment to collect himself, then returned his attention to the camera. “Well, let’s start off by telling y’all what this is,” he motioned behind him to the green screen, drawing the audience’s attention to the colorful presentation. “See this? I made it myself,” he spoke with a matter-of-fact tone, “And you hear that ringing noise? Made that too. The frequencies of the audio mixed with the pulsating visuals create an electromagnetic field strong enough to brainwash someone.” He put a finger up to his lips, “I mean, not like any of you are smart enough to comprehend that.”
“You know, I had always wondered what it’d be like to see an entire country shut down,” Kennith begun swinging the microphone around, careless as to whether or not it broke. “Hell, what would it be like if everyone died, all at once? Now, I could certainly cause that, couldn’t I? Nobody wants me around, so why should I give a damn in return?"

Kennith paused, then let out a small, forced laugh.

“But I think it’s a little early in the evening for that, isn’t it? I mean, the party’s just stared, right?”

LyricsEdit

Oh dear, what a sad ending that was!
...
HAHAHAH.
No it wasn’t.
You see, I’m just getting started.

Turn up the volume
I said, I said
It’s a beautiful day
We’re voiding our heads

In all respect I could see the end
Of a beautiful day
We’re screaming again

Again Again Again Again
We’re screaming again
Again Again Again Again
We’re screaming again

And through the volume, I said
We’ve seen enough
And on the screen, as clear as can be
It’s a colorful display
We’re screaming again

Again Again Again Again
We’re screaming again
Again Again Again Again
We’re screaming again

If it’s too hard to tell
We’ll wake up in a singular reality
The death of a nation
A toxic reaction

So scream and shout, make a whole lotta noise
Don’t be afraid, let the night run out
Well, after all, it’s a television show
A telecast promoting vertigo


You’re wondering who I am, aren’t you?
Yes, you’ve seen me before.
However, I like surprises.
I think I’ll wait a bit longer.

A moment in time to reconcile
Came a little too late, and now it’s gone
A moment in history
Produced by the broken and thrown away

And I’m already here
For you to see, for you to see, to see you
I’ve always been here
For you to see, for you to see, to see you

That’s right.
I’ve always been here.
Right here.
Comforting, isn’t it?

(For you to see, for you to see, to see you)
(For you to see, for you to see, to see you)

So scream and shout, make a whole lotta noise
Don’t be afraid, let the night run out
Well, after all, it’s a television show
The audience is swaying to and fro

So scream and shout, ‘cus the world’s signing off
Don’t be afraid, no, you can’t get enough
Well, after all, it’s a television show
These colorbars mask everyone you know

Are you enjoying yourselves so far?
Just making sure.
Your happiness is my happiness.
HAHAHAH
In fact…
You’re quite similar to me in the end.
ALL OF YOU

(These colorbars mask everyone you know)
(The audience is swaying to and fro)
(In a telecast promoting vertigo)
to see you

For you to see, to see you
For you to see, to see you
For you to see, to see you
For you to see, I see you
