Lyrics:

Donít want to see your agony
I donít want to see your pride
Donít want to see your stupid face
And I donít want to see your bride
Donít want to hear your fairytales
And I donít want to hear your lies
Donít want to hear your screaminí voice
And I donít want to know the prize

Give me instead some company
And give me food for thought
Give me a lonely melody
And give me a sight of God
Tell me tales of yesterday
And let me have a laugh
And when I really want to live
Just turn yourself right off

You spread all your disease around
You spread around the dirt
And when a girl dies in a wreck
You look under her skirt
You say you need to tell the facts
And you say you tell whatís wrong
You scream and shout and make-belief
All day and all night long

Give me instead some company
And give me food for thought
Give me a lonely melody
And give me a sight of God
Tell me tales of yesterday
And let me have a laugh
And when I really want to live
Just turn yourself right off

Donít want to see the game show host
Donít want to see a soap
Donít want to know who won again
And I donít care about the Pope
And if I may quote someone else
To show Iím not alone:
ĎThereís 57 channels out
With nothing going on.í

Give me instead some company
And give me food for thought
Give me a lonely melody
And give me a sight of God
Tell me tales of yesterday
And let me have a laugh
And when I really want to live
Just turn yourself right...
