Here we stand -
(Remote control buttons in our sweaty little hands)
As one man -

(We're lining up and waiting for someone's command)
We don't move -
(we sent out for food, get the news on video)

I can prove -
(there's no need for movies, we got HBO)
In the
T.V. Age
They're out there somewhere

(You know the force has got a lot of power
But what makes you think it gives a **** about you... who are you anyway?)
They're taking over

(And I believe - the aliens have to take a physical form on our planet
So why not one with 13 channels...)
They're out there somewhere
Times must change

(This ain't the stone age, we don't have rocks in our heads)
What's so strange -
(We don't work no more, so why get out of bed)

T.V. rules -
(Pretty soon you won't be able to turn it off at all)
All you fools -
(Then it'll turn you off - your back's against the wall)

In the
T.V. Age
