"People In A Box" Lyrics [edit]
by Farrell & Farrell | from the album The Meek And The Mighty
 

Well, I rolled out of my bed,
I was felling semi-dead, so I wandered from the bedroom to the coffee,
Then I woke up to the sound of little people all around,
Relentless noises from that TV there beside me,
And they told me what to wear, how to smell, and do my hair,
And how to charge the new car I'll be buying,
I just sat and soaked it in,
Are these people all my friends?
It never dawned on us that they could all be lying.

People in a box, TV personalities,
They show me how to live in specific generalities,
People in a box,
Out of bed, tune 'em in,
How much do I learn from people in a box?

Well, I completely bought it all,
Revolving credit, wall to wall, without a payment 'til September '89,
Can I run?
Can I escape?
Are they alive, or just on tape?
They seem so worldly, and so welcome to the eye,
Heavy pressure from the start,
TV madness stole our heart,
Black, and white, and vivid colour turned to grey,
Daytime soaps, they're not clean,
Nighttime cops blast through our screen,
We're a Neilson rating, living on display.

People in a box, TV personalities,
They show me how to live in specific generalities,
People in a box,
Out of bed, tune 'em in,
How much do I learn from people in a box?

Are these sultans of video activity truly them masters of my destiny?
Was I created in the image of Trinitron?
Can Jesus ever endorse mediocrity while we consume hours of program philosophy?
Will we ever learn, off is as easy to turn as on?

Heavy pressure from the start,
TV madness stole our heart,
Black, and white, and vivid colour turned to grey,
Daytime soaps, they're not clean,
Nighttime cops blast through our screen,
We're a Neilson rating, living on display.

People in a box, TV personalities,
They show me how to live in specific generalities,
People in a box,
Out of bed, tune 'em in,
How much do I learn from people in a box?
TV personalities,
They show me how to live in specific generalities,
People in a box,
Out of bed, tune 'em in,
How much do I learn from people in a box?
(fade)
