"Reflection of the Television" as written by Andrew James Macfarlane, James Graham, Mark Gerard Devine and Craig Orzel....
there's people downstairs
i'm more than a fighter you know

there's people downstairs
it wasn't even yours to share

i know you're old
heavy hand takes hold

television's too loud
he leaves without a sound

and i know you're old
heavy hand takes hold

there's people downstairs
i stole it from a letter
off your tongue it rolled

sheltered from the weather
you could be so bold

you told me it'd get better
and i know you're old

there's people downstairs
i'm more than a fighter you know

heavy hand takes hold
and i know you're old

there's people downstairs
there's people downstairs
there's people downstairs

i'm more than a fighter
i'm more than a fighter you know
there's people downstairs

    My InterpretationFrom the official lyrics booklet:

    there's people downstairs
    i'm more than a fighter you know

    there's people downstairs
    it wasn't even yours to share

    i know you're old
    heavy hand takes hold

    television's too loud
    he leaves without a sound

    and i know you're old
    heavy hand takes hold

    there's people downstairs
    i stole it from a letter
    off your tongue it rolled

    sheltered from the weather
    you could be so bold

    you told me it'd get better
    and i know you're old

    there's people downstairs
    i'm more than a fighter you know

    heavy hand takes hold
    and i know you're old

    there's people downstairs
    there's people downstairs
    there's people downstairs

    i'm more than a fighter
    i'm more than a fighter you know
    there's people downstairs
