"Big Screen Tv" as written by Paul Anthony Dempsey, Clint Wesley Hyndman and Stephanie Ashworth....
Big screen television
Say no more
Switch it on and I'll see you in hell
We got the good seats
Just look at the smiles on our faces
Right now (x2)
We are the luckiest people in the whole wide world
Whole wide world (x2)
Big screen tv
In a glass house
Wanna lay down next to you and sleep
But are you dreaming?
Are you dreaming? (x3)
Look at you tracing circles in the grass
Getting bigger and bigger and over and out
We're almost ready to leave
To follow the weather and go where the colour goes
Send a message to the birds that sing in the trees
Always awake before me and always louder than tv

    General Commenthmmm... it's so much easier to get the feel of a song from listening to it than reading it's lyrics without music. but as i listened this album to death and still put it on at least weekly i'll have a go. I have always thought that this was speaking against the media and what todays society sees as immportant: big screen televisions, front row seats... It sounds like somebody is not entirely convinced of the importance of these things (one can assume the somebody is paul dempsy) the birds are still louder, the weather the colour the dreams ... these things are real.

    General Commentits about television consuming our lives.
    we spend so many hours in front of it, we care for it deeply (wanna lay down next to you and sleep). it is everywhere in our lives
    But it isn't as beautiful as the outside world (send a message to the birds... louder than tv)

    General Commenti like the sarcasm in this song as well "we got the good seats
    just look at the smiles on our faces"
