So you want to be en-entertained?
Please look away, don't look away
We're not here cause we want to entertain
You can go away, don't go away
Reality is the new fiction, they say
True is truer these days, truth is man-made
If you're here cause you want to be entertained
You can go away, please go away!

If your heart is done, Johnny get your gun!
Join the rank and file, on your TV dial

You come around looking 1984
You're such a bore, 1984!
You star child, well you're using it like a whore!
It's better than before, oh it's better than before!

You come around sounding 1972
You did nothing new, 1972!
Where's the 'fuck you'?
Where's the black and blue?
Where's the black and blue?
Where's the black and blue?

If your heart is done, Johnny get your gun!

Hey! You look around they are lying to you!
They are lying, ha, they are lying!
Can't you see it is just a silly ruse?
They are lying, I am lying too!
And all you want is entertainment,
Rip me open, it's so freeing, yeah

If your heart is done, Johnny get your gun!

Don't wear me down, I'm not falling down
Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down

1-2-3! If you wanna take a shot at me, well get in line, line
1-2-3! Baby I heard all the shots and I'm fine

1-2-3! If you haven't had enough of me, well get in line, line
1-2-3! Yeah you deserve it now, it's all right

1-2-3! You can drown in mediocrity, it feels so nice, sublime
(Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down)
1-2-3! Yeah it sounds like someone pushed the rewind
(Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down)

1-2-3! Yeah, give it to me easily, fill your mind, this time
(Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down)
1-2-3! Yeah, make it sweet and syrupy with wine
(Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down)

(Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down
Don't drag me down, I'm not falling down)

If your heart is done, Johnny get your gun!
Join the rank and file, on your TV dial

The grip of fear, is already here
The lines are drawn, whose side are you on?
