"Television, Television" as written by and Damian Kulash....
Look at the hottie in the tight jeans,
Look at the pipe dreams,
Look at the fat man burst at the seams
Look at the captain with the galaxy, right off his balcony
Look at the science and your alchemy
Look at the sirens on the cop cars
Look at the pop stars
Look at the convicts filing the bars
Look at the wife, look at the knife
Look at the pom pom prom queen scream and scream and run for her life

Oh it's always right, the perfect light, the dark of night
Give up the world, give up your life â??cause you cannot fight the television

Oh television television
Oh the television!

Look at them trying to get the flag higher
Look at the quagmire
Look at the tread separate from the tire
Look at the junkie trying to get a gram
Look at the betting man,
Look at him folding on the better hand

Oh its always right, the fearless light, the dark of night
Give up the world, give up your life â??cause you cannot fight the television

Oh television television
Oh the television television
Oh the television

Look at me hypnotized and half alive,
Maybe its four or five
Some parts are sleeping, some parts are paralyzed
Just one more minute, just one more minute,
I think I'm almost in it

The television television
Oh television television
Oh give me tits and politicians!
Give me death and demolition!
Give me glamour and sedition!

    BEST part ever! Hehe...
    I think this is an obvious jab at the mass media and how practically all of middle north america are obsessed with the t.v. Social commentary with a twist.

    General CommentThis song has really grown on me. The first time I heard it, I thought it was just plain obnoxious, but then I listened again and started liking it. I agree, Misseverus, that is definitely the best part of the song. I love the almost sarcastic tone Damian takes on in some of his lyrics.

    General Commenti really like this song.
    it just shows everything that is shown on TV
    and its saying that TV is somehow taking over our lives. like it sucks us in until you lose touch of reality...
    well that what i get when i listen to it.....
