"Fight Of A Suburban Couple" as written by and Derek Gledhill Ryan Martin....
You're so into this news thing
On the the TV set
I don't know why you care
When wheel of fortune is on next

We could watch yuppy families
Playing for great prizes
We could forget about this fucked up world
While TV blinds us

You're so into your game shows on the TV set
When we could watch the world explode tonight on channel ten

We could watch fucked up families
As they fuck each other
We could forget about the good things in this world together

    General CommentThis song is basically self-expanitory... Yet it could go just a little bit deeper than it appears. A theory of mine is that the song title is taken literally; just a suburban couple who are having trouble understanding why one another want's to see the world they way they do. The first one, who would rather believe the world is nothing but a fun and games with no worries, is the one complaining about how the second one cares so much about what's really happening in the world and in the news. The second one responds by sarcastically saying "We could watch yuppy famlies, Playing for great prizes, We could forget about this fucked up world, While tv blinds us" The second also begins to complain about how the first is so into game shows and nonsense like that when they could be watching something more relevant like the new or war coverage. The first one responds back by sarcatically saying "We could watch fucked up families, As they fuck eachother, We could forget about the good things in this world together."

    ... It's probably what you were thinking anyway. However, I like the song, soft but good.

    General Commentit deals with the 2 extremes. Those of us who try to lock out the real world with fantacy (Great Gatsbey) and those of us who involve ourselves to much in our own world that we go crazy. ITs really important to have some balance
