I Know What You Want

Oh, TV! Stop depressing us, give us a specimen grin. Everything you say is so disappointing, give us something that could be worth wanting.

I know what you want, you want something to cheer you up, you want to sit in a field under the sun. I know what you want, you want to think you're having fun as you stare into the barrel of a gun.

Sometimes it seems life's so ordinary, never hitting the mark. We're missing stitches in this close-knit community, they're tearing all our houses down to build a shopping theme park.

They know what we want, we want something to cheer us up, we want to sit in a field under the sun.
They know what we want, we want to think we're having fun as we stare into the barrel of a gun.

The writing's on the wall and it's making my skin crawl. But while Rome burns they're fiddling the figures, we warm our hands on the flames. They say it's luxury just stay down on your knees, they toss us the cherry while they're eating our cake.

Because they know what we want, we want something to cheer us up, we want to sit in a field under the sun. They know what we want, we want to think we're having fun as we stare into the barrel of a gun.
