My TV's staring at me

It says 'go to sleep, go to sleep'

Turns me into a Siamese twin

Where do I start

The TV screen begins

Plugs me into some holy geek

His point in life is incomplete

My TV is telling me that only money will make me happy



Hold the course and then sail

Hold the course and then sail



Across the satellite beams

Across the oceans and seas

To the lighthouse I could be

I see some soldiers with guns

And they are killing for fun

They are killing to entertain me



Caught between that world and this

I'd sell my soul for a Bond girl's kiss

Caught between that world and this

I'd sell my soul for a state of bliss

My TV's telling me that all our money goes into the military



Hold the course and then sail

Hold the course and then sail



Across the satellite beams

Across the oceans or seas

to the lighthouse I could be

I see some soldiers with guns

And they are killing for fun

They were dying to entertain me



And then I heard your name

As the spaceman came

He came right through my screen

And then his lifeline broke

He began to choke

Jump cut to another scene

(Your health taken, your health taken, your health taken away)

We lost a friend to the sea

(Your health taken, your health taken, your health taken away)

We lost a friend to the sea

(Your health taken, your health taken, your health taken away)

We lost a friend to the sea

(Your health taken, your health taken, your health taken away)

    General CommentThe lyrics deal with films such as Seven and Heat where the main element of the entertainment is watching people getting killed and the song is a reaction to that

    General CommentI logged onto facebook.com for the first time yesterday and realized that I have lost my friends to the sea. A sea of electronic lies, bloated materialism, and denial that hides their suspended disbelief that modern western lifestyles of decay are not only consuming them but everyone we kill under "foreign policy" to maintain this sick way of life. You've seen it before .. those tired sore smiles that say "I am hypnotized, and adequately, even willingly! desensitized, and sedated! Please don't let my suspicions be true, please just give me another hit. The worst part is when everyone can capture it fifty times a day, digitally. This life was made possible by FUTURE SHOP, keep on pretending you sad empty sheep, you are owned and cultivated and laughed at! GOD I feel so alone.

    Nice song though.
