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 shit 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
