Watching Sitcoms With No Laugh Tracks

from Turning The Crank by The Good Ideas



don't let me go i'm not ready i'm not ready
don't tell me no i'm not listening i'm not listening
to the power of suggestion on the untrained mind
the chains of the adult world are tied to me
please it's not my fault tv lied to me
now when you make yourself blind looking at the sun

when you go to sleep
you never really know when you go to sleep
nobody can follow their mind as it plunges
into the silk womb of the absolute
you get infinite lives unlimited time
nothing quantized or objectified
but the there's this beeiping in your head
and it won't stop
you think it's the ikea truck backing into your driveway
but it's the alarm clock and it's connected to your spine
and you wake up

you're not in the sitcom
it's a documentary they never stop making

don't sell me smokes trust with a god filter
don't tell mee jokes i'm not laughing noone's laughing
at the pale reflection in the lying glass
we'll burn your grumbling hive we're not lying
you won't take us alive we're not buying your smooth
transition to the holes in our spine

it's like you're driving down a street
you pull a u-turn and coming back everything's different
it's not even the same street anymore
time is no longer an independent variable
there's this beeping in yoru heart and it's getting louder
you try to drown it out with the stereo
but the shrill frequency shatters your windows
you try to escape but every street you turn down
ends in a cul de sac and you wake up

you're not in the sitcom
it's a documentary they never stop making
about a search for something that can't be found
from the cervix to the cold cold ground
