  • Go watch the TV
    Tell me what you see
    All these bleeding wounds
    And rising seas, they don't mean much to me
    From the couch here, I plead apathy

    The politicians, they don't speak for me
    A wreck's a wreck, atleast that's what I see
    And your faith you keep, is it dark now?
    It's waiting for me

    So stop the bad dreams
    Stop the headaches
    And leave a little light
    Like when you say it's alright
    Like when you say it's alright
    Well, I guess it is

    Go watch the TV
    Tell me what you see
    Any hope and love or realised dreams?
    That's what I want to see
    No more pain, no tears, no more grief

    So stop the bad dreams
    Stop the headaches
    And leave a little light
    Like when you say it's alright
    Like when you say it's alright

    So sing to me, I love it when
    You sing to me, I love it when
    You sing to me, I love it when
    You sing to me, I love it when
    You sing Writer/s: JAMIE SUTHERLAND
