Maybe it’s the (?)
But that feels like an illegal hold
I know your synapses fire
I know your heart still goes
Maybe it’s the sarcastic smile
From the man on the screen
And when he pressed his face against the glass
I’m never listening

Keep us self-contained and paranoid
Defendant, won’t you keep us in the dark
And just destroy our common sense, why don’t you just
Feed us what you want us to hear?
‘Cause I’ll back all the statements you make and
Justify what you break, ‘cause
You’re not above suspicion these days
All we get is new fiction

Maybe it’s a short in the wire
From the satellite feed
And all the pistols won’t start
Clocks and radios speed
Anyway, the world is on fire
Aren’t you ever gonna let us leave?
‘Cause you wanna stand on hot coals
Panic is what we need.

Keep us self-contained and paranoid
Defendant, won’t you keep us in the dark
And just destroy our common sense, why don’t you just
Feed us what you want us to hear?
‘Cause I’ll back all the statements you make and
Justify what you break, ‘cause
You’re not above suspicion these days
All we get is new fiction

Back all the statements you make and
Justify what you break, and
You’re not above suspicion these days
All we get is new fiction

New fiction, oh oh oh
New fiction, oh oh oh
New fiction, oh oh oh
New fiction


Back all the statements you make and
Justify what you break, ‘cause
You’re not above suspicion these days
Back all the statements you make and
Justify what you break, ‘cause
You’re not above suspicion these days

All we get is new fiction
