"She Drove Me To Daytime Television" as written by Matthew Davies, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
Can't beat the best ones
A little closer maybe a bit too close
You function you turn out
A flawless performance

Turn your camera away from me
Spill your guts in 8mm
Put your focus where your mouth is
You're the only one who's fading here

Such holidays in the sun don't come without sacrifices
You know it makes more sense

I like the way you cry
Break my heart and break my hands and let me down
I want to snap your neck in two
And leave you dead, so dead

on and on and on and on and on (go!)...

    General CommentFor me this seems to be about obsession with a TV personality, hence "She drove me to daytime tv". He read's and see's every atricle about this personality and also see's all the pictures (spill your guts in 8mm). However this person is so obsessed, and he can see that she is struggling to deal with the media attention ("Your the only one who's fading here"). The chorus ("such holidays in the sun...") seems to be saying that celebrity status comes at a cost. And that sometimes means you are driven to the edge.

    The last verse seems to be where the obsession turns to hate, and enjoyment of this persons sadness.
    "I like the way you cry
    Break my heart and break my hands and let me down
    I want to snap your neck in two
    And leave you dead, so dead"
    He's saying that he now likes it when she is upset. And he knows he will never be able to ever have a chance with this person, which really hurts him (breaking his heart). So he'd rather kill her, than have the constant reminder of her in the media all the time.

    General CommentYour ideas are all valid, but I think it's more to do with a relationship ending badly, where the girl has dumped him and he's left in a bit of a state hence 'She Drove Me To Daytime TV'. He was in such a depression after she left, all he could do was sit around all day watching daytime tv. The last verse is his anger towards her for leaving him. He wants to cause her physical pain just like she's caused him emotional pain.

    General Commentbeni_ffaf and Harry_manback, you are both right, possibly. It is definitely about an obsession of some sort, but also a relationship.

    General Commentim with Harry Manback. i think the title means the guy is so depressed with this girl that he watches daytime tv. otherwise its just another song about a bad ending to a relationship and the writer feeling bitter..
