Hello mr. Officer
We're just having fun
You can take the handcuffs off
I promise we won't run
Speed boats and versace coats
An olive in my glass
Jail bird scars and gold tooth smiles
They love my rich girl class
You took away our money
But you'll ever take away our love
And we'll never go to heaven
But who needs to
When you live this good?

'Cause men will fight
And girls will lie
Just like on the television
So don't tell us
That this ain't right
It's just like on the television
The silence, the violence
We don't need to be forgiven
Your business, go mind it
'Cause this ain't f*****g jerry springer
We say our lines
We do the time
We're just like on the television
Television

If I paint my sins white
Will it make me pure again?
If I wet my mascara eyes
Will the witness be my friend?
Nicotine and low life dreams
Have never felt so warm
When your father's on the bottle
And your mother's on the floor
Got the whole town
Looking through our window
Every day of the week
On the run, f**k the fun
No this isn't like the movie scenes

'Cause men will fight
And girls will lie
Just like on the television
So don't tell us
That this ain't right
It's just like on the television
The silence, the violence
We don't need to be forgiven
Your business, go mind it
'Cause this ain't f*****g jerry springer
We say our lines
We do the time
We're just like on the television
Television

"bad mistakes and good intentions"
Ain't what they're saying about us
In the papers
Fast forward? No
Can't change the station
If it's a 7 years
Then 7 years I'm waiting for you

Where I'm from
It all goes wrong
It's not like on the television
The darkest days don't fade away
Can't turn it off like television
They laugh and they wave
Behind the glass
They're there to stay
But our script
It don't fit
You know bad guy always pays
Now I'm alone
There's no one home
So I turn on my television
