    Amused To Death

    Doctor Doctor what is wrong with me
    This supermarket life is getting long
    What is the heart life of a colour TV
    What is the shelf life of a teenage queen
    Ooh western woman
    Ooh western girl
    News hound sniffs the air
    When Jessica Hahn goes down
    He latches on to that symbol
    Of detachment
    Attracted by the peeling away of feeling
    The celebrity of the abused shell the belle
    Ooh western woman
    Ooh western girl
    And the children of Melrose
    Strut their stuff
    Is absolute zero cold enough
    And out in the valley warm and clean
    The little ones sit by their TV screens
    No thoughts to think
    No tears to cry
    All sucked dry
    Down to the very last breath
    Bartender what is wrong with me
    Why I am so out of breath
    The captain said excuse me ma'am
    This species has amused itself to death
    Amused itself to death
    Amused itself to death
    We watched the tragedy unfold
    We did as we were told
    We bought and sold
    It was the greatest show on earth
    But then it was over
    We oohed and aahed
    We drove our racing cars
    We ate our last few jars of caviar
    And somewhere out there in the stars
    A keen-eyed look-out
    Spied a flickering light
    Our last hurrah
    And when they found our shadows
    Groups 'round the TV sets
    They ran down every lead
    They repeated every test
    They checked out all the data in their lists
    And then the alien anthropologists
    Admitted they were still perplexed
    But on eliminating every other reason
    For our sad demise
    They logged the only explanation left
    This species has amused itself to death
    No tears to cry
    No feelings left
    This species has amused itself to death
    Amused itself to death
