lyrics

Gonna pull myself in, make myself small
Rearrange my body ‘til I’m hardly here at all
Black out the windows, turn off my TV
Plug all the holes ‘til you can’t even see me

There's a fly on the wall, watching it all
Looking for dirt to share with the world
If this is reality I’d rather pretend
I don’t need an audience while I still have a friend

This is the snowstorm television dinner
I’m feeling sick, my blood is getting thinner
So I call myself a doctor and say “I think I’m ill”
And he says “you think you’re all that, take a chill pill”
I’m like “hey you’re the doctor”
He’s like “talk to the hand”
And he’s a dead ringer for Jerry Springer

Well I'm stood at the window watching a man
He hasn’t seen me but I’m onto his plan
Tying you down with all the cable you need
Broadband streaming media, text updates and a live feed

Yeah man, I’m busting out. I’m breaking free.
They can’t take my soul but they can have my TV
Except there’s one show this evening I really want to see
It’s the last in the series and the guy looks a bit like me

This is the snowstorm television dinner
I’m feeling sick, my blood is getting thinner
So I call myself a doctor and say “I think I’m ill”
And he says “you think you’re all that, take a chill pill”
I’m like “hey you’re the doctor”
He’s like “talk to the hand”
And he’s a dead ringer for Jerry Springer

And he turns and says “whatever” and walks into the crowd
Winking at the camera, they chant his name out loud
I’d smack him in the face
But there’s three guys holding me down
