"Made For TV Movie" as written by Ben Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
I heard a word from on high
Glare like a light in the sky it said
"quit blowing each other up"
A voicing so crystalline clear so
Somethings unclear in your ear
When only blood will fill your cup

Hello I'm trying to focus
But my eyes deceive me
Focus I'm witnessing history, repeating

It fell like a tear from my eye
Flying machine so up high well,
There goes the neighborgood
A scene set to singe innocence
Up heave unhinge and pit against
Like every made for TV should

Hello I'm trying to focus
But my eyes deceive me
Focus I'm witnessing history, repeating


We are
We know
We see
We think
For you

The who
The what
The when
The where
The why

We build your young
We built you too
Wee see you all

Hello I'm trying to focus
But my eyes deceive me
Focus I'm witnessing history, repeating

    General Commentmaybe because today we see real wars on tv as if they were movies, hence the name of the song. "Im witnessing history repeating" because its hapenning today like it has happened before (Vietnam).

    General CommentKind of obvious, isn't it?

    Anti-war, all the way.

    I needn't say a thing, the lyrics speak for themselves.

    General CommentTotally agree with AzWeThinkIam- anti-war, anti-iraq, and putting forward the similarities betwen 'nam and Iraq. Its kinda the same message as Rage's "No Shelter," with the lyric "Thin line between entertainment and war."

    We see everything going on in the world the way the media wants to show it.

    General CommentLatest incubus album is incredible, I really see a parrelel to the late 60s how music is progressing politically. Give musicians the right climate and they can make amazing songs about society. Way to go Incubus. I am a fan for life now.

    General CommentWell i definitely think war is part of it, but i dont think that its exclusively about that. i think he is also referring to the awesome power of the media (like in Talk Shows on Mute) - 'we think for you, we built your young' (BTW "we build your hill" should be "we built your young" which makes much more sense doesnt it?)
    the media is so all-corrupting and distorts everything we see or read; history is repeating and we are all passively sitting by and letting it happen, because the media makes it so hard to 'focus'.

    General CommentI personally think that this song is anti-murder, anti-killing, however you want to word it. It is an awesome song also.
