Earthbound

So is this one long advertising campaign?
Turn the T.V. on and it screams at you all day
The opinion shapers hold sway
Every lunatic idea has its say
Before you know it you become susceptible to
Every screech and howl in this human zoo

Just like the book you lost or the favourite song
Whose words you forgot so now you just hum along
Just like the meal you ate that came on a plastic tray
Difficult to know which bit to throw away
Before you know it you become disposable too
Captured, tamed and caged in this human zoo

I know I'm earthbound
My feet are made of clay
Still I won't stand around
And waste my life away

>From impetuous youth to the long-in-tooth
Legions breaking out of this human zoo

I know I'm earthbound
My feet are made of clay
Still I won't stand around
And waste my life away

I know I'm earthbound
I'm dragging round these chains
Spun round and dumbed down
But I'm not here to stay
