this one goes out to MTV, don't wanna be another rock n' roll apology
it's better to burn out than fade away yeah i'm reminded every day
that i am changing for the music industry

sell out, sell in, cos these days it's the same,
and the big city lights just seem to spell out my name,
don't you get what i mean? this is why i hate mtv

i wanted more than i could steal

and it takes our souls to make this sound,
and we raise a smile from the underground
cos they know, they know, they know,

does it sound like i'm gonna cry? cos that's the mood i'm going for,
it isn't much fun being cool ten years behind
it's better to have won what i have lost yeah knives in backs i know the cost
so i am changing for the music industry

dear mum and dad, i'm doin' fine,
they signed up my band, put us on the conveyor belt line,
don't you get what i mean? this is why i hate mtv

from dust we came to dust we shall return,
i reserve my personal right to crash and burn

and from beyond the grave our heroes weep
at the uselessness of what we believe
don't you get what i mean? this one goes out to mtv
