LyricsEdit

Animals on T.V. singing about some pain that they once felt

There's no one I disapprove of more or root for more than myself

I wanted to pretend that I [studio] / it [live] was better, better, better on the phone

I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone


So we talk about ourselves in hell

To forget the love we never felt

all the old jokes that work so well

universal truth was a moment's lie


Don't try to stop us

don't try to stop us

don't try to stop us

Get out of the way


Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see

She sees her father in that old man's eyes

while secretly he stares at her thighs

Animals on TV singing about something they felt at some point

I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous

What's the point?


As I watched the velvet drapes appear

And the door was closed for forty years

As we hide what we don't wanna hear

As we hide what's really in our ears


He is coming from a part of hell

Where lightning blue eyes don't go down well

He can tell that we're oblivious

It's addiction of routine as well


Making fools out of the best of us

Making robots of the rest of us

And the tale to tell in America today

Where's our time just look

Don't try to stop us, don't try to stop us, don't try to stop it

Get out of the way
