==============================
You Am I - Television Addict
==============================


I read the news the other day about a boy they threw away.
He went out and shot someone like some goddamn teleplay.
He claimed he was confused between fact and fantasy.
Seems he spent all his time in front of a TV screen

(and was a)television addict.

His lawyers said this boy was sick blaming ratings for his crime.
They said too much sex and too much violence on the idiot box blew up his idiot mind.

(he was a) television addict.
Watch it.

(he was a) television addict.

You and me we spend all our time in front of the window of the world.
And just because I watch Diner, sure doesn't mean I need a face lift
doesn't mean my brain has skipped. Doesn't mean anything.
There's more going on inside my mind than on any television screen.

(he was a) television addict.

Just because I watch Prisoner, Cop Shop, Fat Cat, Humphrey fucking B

(I'm a) television addict.
