I took two steps out of the door
And I got two steps away
And then I turned, the scream was calling
I could not resist
You could find a bead of light
One can cause the outside window to dull
Pause until the evening turns
And it's a.m. routine job or the pills
We're all on cable i.v. drips
Let red cells pixelate us
Constant help needed to unhook
Call it "victim convenience"
I took two steps out of the room
And I stepped back toward the door
And tried again, a conversation
And it went like this:
I could talk for hours to you
I could watch your mouth and eyes until they shut
The controller's lost and I'd rather commit "power"
Than hear this out

    General CommentThis song is obviously an SNES boss theme. Listen to it and close your eyes and all you can think of is fighting a boss on SNES. It's crazy like that!

    General CommentIt appears to be a commentary on American society.
    A lot of it is the addiction to TV and lack of appreciation for the real world "One can cause the outside window to dull". I think the title line "Victom Convenience" refers to the fact that Americans don't take responsiblity.

    General CommentNot just Americans. I know they're from here and all, but I think like everyone is guilty of this.

    General CommentI thought it was "the screen was calling."
    Wouldn't that make more sense if it was all about TV taking over one's life.
