Lyrics:

Face Down (Eric Fitz)

Give me entertainment or give me death
There must be some distraction
For every living, every sleeping
Every breathing breath
There's time later for decisions
Now let's go to the store
We can spend some money and we can have some fun
I sincerely believe it is our right as human beings to have fun
I am told by media friends I am happy
I am happy and I am whole
There's music in my office and in my car
Which I use to drive to my protected, carpeted
wall-to-wall and paintd home.
We have an enemy begging us, begging us
Modern people regress
We are modern
We are progressive
We can defeat the real
Reality involves death - unheard of
Not in this day and age
Paper-maché Mephistopheles?
You don't know what you're talking about
I like to be with my friends
In buildings where it's quiet and safe
But not too quiet
NO DON'T TURN OFF THE MUZAK, I'LL HAVE A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
Turn it back on
We'll do anything you say
We'll buy anything
We'll listen to you
We'll face down all the time...
Oh that's much better
Could you turn up the fluoresent lights a bit
I'm getting a headache...
But this is some new kind of pain
I don't understand
It feels as if there's something iside my head tryong to get out
but there's nothing in my head but happy thoughts...
NO! IT CAN'T BE! IT'S AN IDEA! TAKE IT AWAY! I'M NOT MADE FOR REAL THOUGHT!
Give me input!
Give me flurescent lights and disco balls
"The comfort zone"
And painted walls
We'll do anything you say
We'll face down all the time
Never question
