Before that sacred holy flickering tv-screen You're served commercials day-time fakes and tv-priests You keep your VCR running almost constantly Afraid to miss out on something happening on channel three
You zap from channel one to two look what they have done to you You live from staged realities and fakes Channel three then four and five you double check your tv-guide Re-enacted lives to keep you awake
Life is served Here every taste will find our satisfaction guarantee On the never sleeping flickering screen
You keep watching this truly weird masquerade The flickering screen enchants you your truly all enslaved
Nostalgia sports and comedies, cops cartoons and tragedies Remote control at hand you sit enslaved Washing powder and apple pies re-runs soaps and Jesus Christ Anytime is time to zap the world away
Life is served... We're your telly visions You zap from channel one to two... Nostalgia sports and comedies... Life is served...
