"Commercial Breakdown" as written by Samuel Dylan Murphy Preston, William Jonathan Brown and Ceris James....
Yeah
Oh Maybe I'm right
Oh maybe I'm wrong
We can fight for
One single way to get along
And we've all got to not shake down!
And I've only missin' a point
And I can't search the way to try to telling lies


So I'll tell my problem
You're never gonna get me
If I'm too be busy
A social conscience
I saw it on the tv
At least it keeps me busy
At least it keeps me busy

Oh maybe sometimes
I find it hard to comply
With people that don't look you
In the eye
And it's because all the commercial
Breakdown!
And I've only missin' a point
Is what the media's sayin'
That is switching to

So I'll tell my problem
You're never gonna get me
We're far too busy
And so's your conscience
What story gonna save me
At least it keeps me busy

Oh
And I used to think that these things happen for a reason
I used to think that these things happen for a reason
I used to think that these things happen for a reason

    General CommentNo comments, seriously? Epic song.

    I think it's about how the media keeps churning out stuff to keep our minds occupied, "Well I saw it on the TV, At least it keeps me busy." so that we're kept from knowing or having time to think about real issues, "And I'm only missing the point, It's what the media say and then expect your head to turn away."

    But the silver lining is, "You're never gonna get me". Sunshine Underground is AWESOME.
