lyrics

Something's always on my mind
It's something I can never find
I am waiting for the day to come
When everything is overrun
By older men in nice suits

And everything's a million miles
Nobody ever smiles
They are waiting for the day to arrive
When they will finally feel alive
In all the nice things they bought

Oh
Whoa whoa

Well open your eyes
And don't look so surprised
It's only me, your TV
I apologize
You thought you knew
But you didn't have a clue
Look over here, look over there
We know what's good for you

Everybody get in line
Wait your turn and you'll be fine
We just gotta learn to agree
That nothing in life is free

Oh
Whoa whoa

Well how can you say
You'll always get your way
Don't you know you're on your own
You can't go home and you can't stay
So fall to the floor
You left it at the door
Your disguise, your only prize
Who are you anymore?

You're trying hard to find the truth
But your mother left you with nothing else to do

Oh, whoa whoa

Well open your eyes
And don't look so surprise
It's only me, your TV
I apologize
You thought you knew
But you didn't have a clue
Look over here, look over there
We know what's good for you

Well there are exceptions to the rules
But your mother left you with nothing else to do

And something's always on my mind
It's something I can never find
I am waiting for the day to come
When everything is overrun
By older men in nice suits
