about

I just wanted to watch the damn game.

lyrics

Glenn Miller went down in the ocean
Somewhere between England and France
We took down the bunting and banners
And cancelled the band for the dance
The movie show is smoking in ruins
And the library went up in flames
There's nothing to eat
But moss, stones and peat
And we've only ourselves for the blame
You can't read a book or a comic
Or kick back and cheer at a game
There are no more lighthearted farces
And every damn movie's the same
The songs are composed by committee
They hate everything that you are
There isn't much call
For escapism now
Everything's timid and hard
oooooo
just wanted to get away
They're using their stories as weapons
And all of the jokes are attacks
So on one turns on the TV anymore
And unsold books pile up in stacks
While artists conduct inquisitions
And burn all the witches at proms
We toss veggies and meats
And tear up our seats
Using our cushions as bombs
oooooo
just wanted to get away
