Channel two
Nothing's new
What did you expect, another point of view?
Or someone more beautiful then you? Enjoy this emptiness
You give your soul and nothing less You're a naked person with no address So why can't you turn it off?
Because it turns you on
Why can't you look away?
The box is here to stay
Casualties of channel zero
Quiet desperation
Casualties of channel zero
Didn't last
Channel three's
Not for me
Oh my sleeping country tis of thee
You sell things that
That should be free
Technology has a better…
But I prevail
Is like what's in common they call hell
So why can't you turn it off?
Because it turns you on
Why can't you look away?
The box is here to stay
Casualties of channel zero
Quiet desperation
Casualties of channel zero
Didn't last (2x)

Yeah, yeah...

    General CommentNow that I heard this song more and more, it probably is about the tv's control over people. THis is interesting because recently jon posted on myspace that he hates tv.

    General Commenti finally got it... i found out that Channel Zero is some adult porn station in Canada. now that you tie in pornography with the lyrics it all makes sense. millions are addicted to porn and i guess they become casualities.

    General CommentFirst, I'd like to make a few corrections to the lyrics:

    Casualties of channel zero
    Didn't 'LET GO'

    Technology has the better 'OF ME',
    But I prevail...

    The song actually IS about people's addiction to television... Our addiction is killing our spirit, thereby killing who we are... He admits that technology has the better of him, but he still manages to be unique... It is a well-known fact that Jon Crosby HATES television...

    No, DDT... It's not about porn. I ASSURE you...

    General CommentI agree with furi kurisu, though I think that the song could b interpreted to go beyond just to TV to culture as a whole. Lyrics corrections:

    "You sell things that
    That WE NEED FOR free"
