Breaking down from every insult that you've taken
from one sided conversations
Burning out from all the minor misconceptions
that just play on your frustrations
your self doubt has your head so turned around
there's not a catch phrase that can save you
and it's not that hard to figure out
disappointment doesn't have to cut to a commercial now
I'm breaking down I'm burning out
and it's not funny like on television
when your self doubt turns you inside out
it's still not funny like on television
I'm passing time since I've been right
and it's not funny like on television
those times I've cracked with no laugh track
and it wasn't funny like on television

    General Comment"Bigger Picture" is pure genius in its comparison of life and emotion to television. It's obvious that everything you feel inside has, at one point, been shown on the screen, though always different. Numerous times you would have thought that the problems of a TV character to be funny, though they're certainly not when you feel them for real. Like it says "It's not funny like on television." And the pain and dissappointment "doesnt have to cut to a commercial now."

    General CommentThere've been times when I could really relate to the thing about "every inslut that you've taken" and I think it's also about how television cheapens emotion and it makes people think that they can pick on each other and it'll all be ok, but it really does push you to the edge.
