Timbuk 3 – Just Another Movie lyrics

Presidential elections are planned distractions
To divert attention from the action behind the scenes
Like a game of chess when the house is a mess
Or a petty money squabble when your marriage is in trouble
Or a football game when there's rioting in the streets
It's just another movie, another song and dance
Another poor sucker who never had a chance
It's just another captain going down with his ship
Just another jerk, taking pride in his work
I was a poor magician; I could never understand
You can't make tears disappear through sleight of hand
>From the bottom of my heart -- off the top of my head
Words were pulled like rabbits from a hat but nothing was said
Now my freedom's bought and paid for -- it lights up my living room
I got nothing more to prove; I've got no reason to move
And when I'm tired of the program -- when it's taken it's toll
I can press a button, change the channel by remote control
