I'm not smoking the crack but i know how to get it
I'm not sleeping with her but i know her name
Well honey
If i was in this for the money
I'd get a real job
Well beat upon the brick wall
Until your fist falls
Lying in a pool with all your blood and lies
Generated freedom based on your greed
But we only know what you televise tonight
Tonight...

I've never loaded a gun but i'd know how to shoot it
I've never stolen your words but i've felt your pain
Well honey
If you're in it for the money
Go get a real job
Beat upon the brick wall
Until your fists fall
Lying in a pool with all your blood and lies
Generated freedom based on your greed
But we only know what you televise tonight
Tonight...
Tonight...

Beat upon the brick wall
Until your fists fall
Lying in a pool with all your blood and lies
Generated freedom based on your greed
But we only know what you televise
Beat upon the brick wall
Until your fists fall
Lying in a pool of all your blood and lies
Generated freedom based on your greed
But we only know what you televise
What you televise
Generated freedom based on your greed
But we only know what you televise

    kinda sounds like
    "Beat upon the brick wall
    Until you'RE FACE FIRST
    Lying in a pool with all your blood and lies
    Generated freedom based on your greed"

    to me...and it kinda makes more sense too.

    General Commenti remember seeing these guys play at Youthfest in Dee Why (in Sydney, if you're unfamiliar) about three years ago, and I thought they were brilliant. I saw them around a little bit more, but nothing major. Just local gigs and a 2 X 2 inch article in BLUNT.
    But THEN! I went to the 30 Seconds to Mars concert at the Hordern Pavillion, and guess who supported them????
    I was so proud of them. They did brilliantly =]
