Eye on the TV
Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor
It happens to be

Like:
“Killed by the husband”
“Drowned by the ocean”
“Shot by his own son”
“She used a poison in his tea
and kissed him goodbye”
That’s my kind of story.
It’s no fun ’til someone dies

Don’t look at me like
I am a monster
Frown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV
Stare like a zombie
While the mother holds her child,
Watches him die

Pleas to the sky crying,
“Why, oh why?!”

Cause I need to watch things die
From a distance
Vicariously, I
Live while the whole world dies
You all need it too – don’t lie.

Why can’t we just admit it?
Why can’t we just admit,
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
Neither the brave nor bold
Will write us a story. So,
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’

I need to watch things die
From a good safe distance
Vicariously, I
Live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so
Why can’t we

Just admit it

Blood like rain, come down
Drum on grave and ground

Part vampire
Part warrior
Carnivore and voyeur
Still have the transmittal
Synch to the death rattle…

La, la, la, la, la, la,la-lie (x4)

Credulous at best your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
Pull your head on out
You Hippies and give a listen
Shouldn’t have to say it all again

The universe is hostile
So impersonal
Devour to survive
So it is, so it’s always been …

We all feed on tragedy
It’s like blood to a vampire

Vicariously, I
Live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.
