    It is entirely improbable that the NSA is physically listening to pretty much anyone. The man power alone makes that impossible. If they do actually have the audio of all phone conversations then for most people the only “listening” being done is by computers that look for patterns and keywords.

    Meaning it isn’t a dude with a headphone but a machine, making it have much less of a personal touch then the song implies.
