lyrics

So it goes,
We lose ourselves in lines and rows
In ties and bows,
Aligned, easy to find,
Cornered in twine
Bordered around our plots
Without a thought,
Until, by sheer force of will,
We break and take one more pill
And all the noise goes away
(And all the choices you've made).
Floating around in the air,
Ain't it just like being there?
Like being there?

[It's a battle between our senses
And the impulse to build up fences.
It's the illness of 20 million,
Not a matter of opinion.
Try to listen and try to reckon
With the horror of passing seconds.
It's a living and breathing nightmare,
Every moment of being there,
Of being there.]

Though the chances are slim,
Let us begin:
Turn on the TV set
And just forget
The eyes above and below
That follow wherever you go,
And try not to be so afraid,
So upset and dismayed;
Life is a state of mind,
Play your game, you'll be fine.
Just like TV,
I see them but they don't see me.
Floating around in the air,
Ain't it just like being there?
Like being there?

[Chorus]
