IV-TV

The light's a game that changed our name
Made our lives this simple stain
Drove the children from their chores
Handcrafted housewives into whores
So sly the snake, it ate our brains
Injecting poison in our veins
TV-mind hints with rhymes
Your face is cracked and filled with lines

The light's a game that changed our name
Made our lives this simple stain

Intravenous TV screens
Ultra-violence all he sees
Ride the lightning to the skies
Smack the clouds and watch them cry

All we do is fight
For what we think is right
Sound that might be wrecked by sight
Denial taking human life

The clouds go by the children run
'Cuz there's no stars in the sun
Water falling from the spout
Into wanting thirsty mouths

Made our lives this simple stain

All we do is fight
For what we think is right
Sound that might be wrecked by sight
Denial taking human life

All we do is fight
For what we think is right
Sound that might be wrecked by sight
Endless blinding cathode light

    General CommentPretty straight forward, but probably has a meaning that I am to tired now to see. All he is trying to say is the we seem to need the TV. We are more and more dependant on it which could lead to some big problems...

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is as follows:
    Television is a being that is talking over our live we watch it to know what poeple all over the world are fighting over today, who died, who lives, what celebrities are better off than you, and sacre us over what horrible death you could die of.
    People in the country that don't watch TV lead a more richer lifeThey play out side, they see the beuty of the out doors (and not watch other people have a hard time in it)cough*survivorCough* and enjoy the sunny days and not run away from it. I did when I lived in mexico. so the moral of the song Is: STOP WATCHING SO MUCH FUCKING TELEVISION AND GO OUTSIDE AND DO SOME THING!!!!!Cause your looking really pale my friend

    General CommentI think this basically means that technology is taking over our minds you know? the shows and news we wat ch fill our brains with so much political crap and views that we start to believe it all. IV is something that keeps you alive wen ur in the hospital right? so Iv-tv means were dependent on the tv to live.

    General Comment..im pretty sure this ISNT spooky kids song..probably a website released song..as there were plenty during the triptych era..and this seems to fit in ....look inside the the booklet of anti christ superstar..in SMALL fuckin writing you see an evolution of four letters..im pretty sure this is the ending of the evolution...it starts with YHVH (unpronounceable name of god) ..and it ends with iv-tv....basicly..it shows ..as many said..the important of t.v. and how the media is the new religion..(GOD IS IN THE T.V.)

    If I can remember correctly, it IS a Spooky Kid song, I think it was on 'The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat'
