Vacant Possession

Watching television with the sound turned down
The room's too hot - my head's going round
I opened my eyes but the nightmare didn't go
The nightmare was real, it was a part of the show

Ritual violence in locker-rooms
CIA plots set to popular tunes
Images collide in a troubled mind
Mass murder on your doorstep, cheap Venetian blinds

Have another lager if you're feeling dry
As space-age heroes blow each other out of the sky

Breakfast television is here to stay
Blood on your cornflakes at the start of the day
Here's a novelty if you're feeling tough -
A television set that you can't turn off
