"TV Show" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
I walk around in the market
Late at night
I walk around in the empty aisles
And I don't know why
I need to be
Close to the light
So I walk around
In the middle of the night

I drive around in the neighborhood
I want to lose my house
Drive around on the freeway
Guess I want to lose myself
Turn the key
Turn the dial
Listen to the radio
And just drive for a while

Yeah, I got no place to go
I wish I
Could come home
To a life that looks like a TV show
Wish I
Could see
My television family waiting for me

Where no one fights
No one screams
No one lies
And no one leaves
I don't care how the story ends
I want to feel like I'm living again

I drive away from the city
Need to see the sky
Drive away from the bad things
That make me close my eyes
Leave it all
In the past
Drive away
Going nowhere fast

Yeah, now I got nowhere to go
I wish I
Could go home
To a life that looks like a TV show
Wish I
Could see
My television family waiting for me

Where no one fights
And no one screams
No one lies
And no one leaves
I don't care how the story ends
I want to feel like I used to feel
I want to feel like I'm living again

Whoa
I'm living again
Whoa
I'm living again
Whoa
Breathing out
And breathing in
Whoa
I'm living again

Walk away from the circles
Need to find myself
I think I need to start over
Need to start making sense

Breathe out
Breathe in
I wish I could start all over again

I wish I could do it all over again

I wish I
Could come home
To a life like the one that I used to know
I wish I
Could someday see
Everything back the way it used to be

Where no one cries
No one screams
No one hits you
And no one leaves
Everybody loves how the story ends
All the bad guys lose
And the good guys win

I wish I could do it all over again

I want to feel someday
I can really start living again

Whoa
I'm living again
Whoa
I'm living again
Whoa
I'm living again

Whoa
I am living again

Whoa
I'm living again
Whoa
I'm living again

Whoa
Yes, I'm living again

    General CommentThis is about someone who wishes life for more like The Brady Bunch, where everyone loved each other, and there were no (major) problems.
    The narrator gets away from life for a while, and it seems like when he/she gets back, they have a different perspective and are happy again (Yes, I'm living again).

    General Commenti agree with Theo Reo in the sense that when we see a reality TV show (i.e. the brady bunch) they don't have problems like divorce and child abuse and drugs and such. art is saying that he'd like to get away from his own childhood (as messed up as it was) and zap himself into one of those shows-where at the end of every episode, everything's fine.
