why are all the people on tv
so much less attractive than you and me
the gap-toothed clerk with the 3-eyed smirk has a
parking record the size of me

skeleton bandanas on your wall
duck tape windows, so enthralled
placeholders, pension plans, 40 dollar bills,
from 7 miles away we can see your skills

why are all the people on tv
so much more attractive than you or me
steel guitars, railways sidings, change on the ground,
what was once lost now is found

if the alleys are the footnotes of the avenues,
well come on girl and tell me the truth

the president's made his choice
and it's a choice you can't avoid

but if you try real hard
and you close your eyes
and you see through the masking facilities
then you'll know the answer as to why

are all the people on tv so
much more attractive than you or me

if it strikes once and if it strikes twice,
lightning again will never strike

talks like a newspaper and bathes in colon
his empire soon will be overthrown

if you try real hard
and you open your eyes
and you burn down the masking facilities
then you'll know the answer as to why
are all the people on tv so much more attractive than you or me
