Radios in cars, walkmans, aeroplanes
Electric fans, cybersex, your ideal man
Helicopters, floating candles, liquidizers
TV channels, buy it now while you can
Video remote control, acid rain and sugar snow
The butter mountain, ten year climb.

The world is your oyster, I've seen it on TV.

And now's about the time
We look into our minds
We look into our lives and see
Who is feeding off who
Who is giving what to
Who is full and who is empty
And yeah, I'll still be here
I'll be here for you
Yeah, I'll still be here
I'll be here for you.

Mobile phones and hairdryers
Firelighters, instant fires
Doggy clothes and ethnic cleansing
Coca Cola, signs on mars, plastic breasts
Rocket cars, cosmic fear and gay priests preaching
Casanova presidents, the bombing down of monuments
The papers tell you who the stars are kissing.

The world is your oyster, I've seen it on TV.

And now's about the time
We look into our minds
We look into our lives and see
Who is feeding off who
Who is giving what to
Who is full and who is empty
And yeah, I'll still be here
I'll be here for you
Yeah, I'll still be here
I'll be here for you.

The world is your oyster, I've seen it on TV.

    General CommentThis is such a good song, its all about how you have to drag yourself away from modern life and look at the things that really matter - people's feelings.
