Just for fun and because I love conspiracy theories. But just because you're paranoid it doesn't mean they are not out to get you. With more invasions of privacy from internet operators like Google and scial netoring sites like Facbook, paranoia seems a wise policy.

Earth is controlled by aliens
The information is surpressed
By covert government agencies
In both the East and West
George Dubya is a Martian
So are Chirac and Blair too
I read it in the tabloid press
So I know it must be true
Elvis is alive and well
His hairline now recedes
I saw him chatting with Lord Lucan
In a small cafe near Leeds.
The spy station at Menwith Hill
Records each phone-call that you make
The Inland Revenue without telling you
Have authority to take
The cash out of your Bank account
If you make some small mistake
On your annual tax return
All your friends and neighbours
Can find out how much you earn.
Your bank and your employer
Collaborate with MI5
They have a secret dossier
On everyone alive
The illuminati have their agents
in every town and street.
Mysterious societies
Control army and police
Google is always watching
with it's eye up in the sky
and tells you boss and friends
of everything you read or buy
You have no individual liberty
In anything you do
You just can't be too paranoid
Big Brother is watching you....

Good write and oh so true of life and being watched. Camera's hidden everywhere, and the most unusual places too. We are never free from the world's eyes.

This uh Lord Lucan fella, so he really know Elvis, huh? If I wuz you, man, I wouldn't be writin' on the Net 'bout dem Illuminatis. They's some mean mothers and they's everywhere you know. My grandmother's unlce's cousin's fiancee's stepson told me all about 'em. I gots the skinny. ;-)

I barely made it through this, Ian, I was laughing so hard. Have you heard BareNaked Ladies song "Everybody Get in Line?" If not, I'll send you a link.
