  • And they're making children
    And they're making love
    With their old excuses
    We are built for reproduction
    But I find it soothing
    When I am confined
    I'm just fearing one day soon
    I'll lose my mind

    Then I'll lose my children
    Then I'll lose my love
    Then I'll sit in silence
    Let the pictures soak
    Out of televisions
    Float across the room
    Whisper into one ear
    And out the other one

    Then I'll take my clothes off
    And I'll walk around
    Because it's so nice outside
    And I like the way the sun feels
    And when it's dark
    I'll call out in the night for my mother
    But she isn't coming back for me
    'Cause she's already gone
    But you will not tell me that
    'Cause you know it hurts me every time you say it
    And you know you're doing the right thing
    You must know you're doing the right thing

    I have lost my children
    I have lost my love
    I just sit in silence
    Let the pictures soak
    Out of televisions
    Out of televisions
    Out of televisions
    Out of televisions
    Out of televisions

    And they're making children
    Everyone's in love
    I just sit in silence
    Let the pictures soak Writer/s: ELENA VERONICA TONRA, IGOR ALEXANDRE HAEFELI
