"Television" as written by James Eric Sellers, Walter Flakus, Andy Kubiszewski and Christopher Hall....
I sit alone contemplating
What is missing inside me
I desperately try to remember
I life that's not meant to be
I meditate and try to recapture
Some sense of reality in my life
When I look around
I see numb empty faces
The world is wating to die
And this apathy is so suffocating
The slow decay of my mind

For someone with answers
To questions that are plaguing me
I scream in vain to anyone who'll listen
But everybody's watchin' TV
Is anyone alive
Am I in a lost world where no one cares
Is anyone alive
Are we lost in a world where nothing matters
Are we lost in a world where no one cares
Is anyone alive

    General CommentThis is the first song I posted and its a friken good one. This song is about a man sayin' he is lonely and isolated in his neighbourhood and then he realizes that this is happening because everyone around him is dull and lifeless. When he screams "Is anyone alive?" but he sadly knows the answer and with greif, its no...

    General CommentI love this song...personally it is one of my favorite songs of all time, it's that good.

    I agree with Frelic, but I feel there might be a slight deeper meaning to it..i'll look into it.

    General Commentthis is a song clearly about how the Television is consuming the human race, turning everyone into apathetic mindless zombies, unfit to even be considered alive

    General CommentThis song is so fantastic!
    It's become like an anthem for everyone who actually isn't sucked in by the mindless droning of television.
    It's just about feeling different, why is he 'more awake' so to speak and why does he feel so different.

    My fav part is: "When I look around
    I see numb empty faces
    The world is waiting to die"

    So poignant.
