I have a TV screen of some 32 inches 
TV dinner and an easy chair 
From where I view a disaster 
And switch the channel fast 
And thank my lucky star I wasn't there 
The world's in a hurry but I don't have to worry 
There's a movie on with a happy end 
I've seen it before but I can see it some more 
So I don't have to go out and pretend 

No I don't have to go out 
I'll just stay inside - it doesn't bother me 
I have all I need because everything is on TV 

Well I burned all my books 
On my ass I sit and look 
And behold the world deteriorate 
I don't have to stand up just to take a stand 
I'll SMS a live TV debate 

No I don't have to go out 
I'll just stay inside - it keeps me company 
I have all I need because everything is on TV 
Everything is on TV 

I can pay to get heard or to get the last word 
Wire money to some charity 
While I do as I please and bake in my own grease 
I better keep my conscience clean 
The world's in a hurry but I don't have to worry 
I got my virtue and I got my vice 
I got bedsores - aching ligaments galore 
Now that's a tiny sacrifice

No I don't have to go out 
I'll just stay inside - it keeps me company
I have all I need because everything is on TV 
Everything is on TV
Everything is on TV
