Tomorrow will be a perfect day.
I’ll wake up rested and ready to play.
I’ll spend my time with the ones I love.
And be the friend they’re worthy of.
I won’t worry about the past
Or the future that comes so fast.
I’ll cherish each moment as it comes.
Sharing love and having fun.
It sounds so good I can’t wait.
So I will live tomorrow today.
Television is an amazing thing
From your chair you can see
Life at its best lived by those
That know what to do and where to go.
You laugh, you cry
And share their lives
All the while
Yours passes by.
Television what a plot.
At the start who would have thought
It would be used in this way?
To make the world a stupid place.
Who owns the cameras make the rules,
And they’ve decided to make us fools.
Every day while in a trance
People watch as others dance
Or laugh or live or love and play
While they sit and fade away.
Can great TV shows you have seen
Replace you baby or their teens?
While you watch TV all day
They grow up and move away.
It’s OK because they too
Won’t remember much of you.
The choice is yours from now on.
Watch strangers live their lives,
Learn to live your own.
