Vicarious lyrics


Vicarious


Eye on the TV, 'cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like
"Killed by the husband," "Drowned by the ocean"
"Shot by his own son," "She used a poison in his tea
Then kissed him goodbye," that's my kind of story
It's no fun 'til someone dies

Don't look at me like I am a monster
Frown out your one face, but with the other
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child
Watches him die
Hands to the sky cryin', "Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die
From a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too - don't lie

Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'
Neither the brave nor bold
Will write us the story, so
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'

I need to watch things die
From a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so...
Why can't we just admit it?

Blood like rain fallin' down
Drum on grave and ground

Part vampire, part warrior
Carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmittal
Sing to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in angels in the hearts of men
But pull your head on out your hippie haze and give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again
