Inspired by Noam Chomsky, Captains of Consciousness, and the Hidden Persuaders about the relentless pursuit to keep everything light in a consumption culture. Oh, and Bo Diddley, too.

Lyrics

It's a lite, lite world and it loves the dark.
It's pain-retardant, and anti-spark.
And if you're troubled, don't let it show.
The lite, lite world don't wanna know.

It's a lite, lite world on your TV screen
Of sugarless pleasures and Saniclean.
It's a lite lite world of all temperature cheer,
Wrinkle-free worries and salt-free tears.

It's a lite, lite world of one and done,
Of crush-proof hearts and Duracell fun.
It's a lite lite world of low-cal vice,
It’s Teflon truthed and Wonder sliced.

It's a lite, lite world, in sport it trusts,
In bloodless battles and odorless lusts.
It's tamper proof, rechargeable,
If you want relief, just lift and pull.

It's a lite lite world around the clock
It's a lite lite world around the block.
It's a lite lite world of relaxed-fit mirth
And it's smiley-facing the troubled earth--
And have a nice day, for what it's worth.
