tv song lyrics – broadways

i’ve seen the stupid stare on thousands of our faces
watched my thoughts carelessly fall away while i fumbled for the right words to say
my brain is such a mish-mash of mtv videos and vacant, empty sp*ces
and i look around and see a thousand drooling idiots just the f*cking same as me

we’ve been weaned on mr. rogers, we all worship the tv
that sucks our f*cking imaginations from our heads and no one wants to see
the generation of zombies and their f*cking sick parade
marching forward to the beat of “house of style” and “singled out”
but i flip to it the same as you, bored sh*tless on my couch

and why am i bored? it’s because when i was growing up i saw everything played out
and i could flip the channel tirelessly
and since i was so capable, my attention span shrunk to fit
to the point where i reject things that aren’t synthetic blobs of sh*t

i don’t want an easy answer, i need a f*cking catch-all phrase
i don’t have the time or patience to read a book and figure sh*t out for myself
when it’s spelled out for me as plain as f*cking day
and with pretty flashing lights and sounds to keep me entertained

i’m like a dog trained by a box, “like” and “totally” fill my day
and “i think i’m going crazy, man” has become f*cking cliche
and i think i’m going crazy or was i just raised that way?
and i think hard about nothing as i stare off into sp*ce

we need to turn our heads on, cause our brains are getting soft
so exercise your brain and turn your tv f*cking off
