Big Square People - Lyrics by Heaven 17


Lyrics
Another square day
And another square week
And another square year
And another square lifetime
If you turn me on like you turn it on
Big square people
If you look at me the way you watch tv
Big square people
You're digging it round when it should be square
Big square people
When the screen is blank there's no-one there
Big square people
I've seen you watching it day and night
You don't miss the big game or big fight
All those dimensions all those race (? )
Come in action (? )
The world's full of greed and envy and lust
If they don't get you the (? ) must
Turn on at daybreak before you're awake
I turn it off now
Big square people(repeat)

The big square people in sensorround
Before too long the damage is done

With every booster and (? )
They're sending signals from satellite sky
Soon you're on tv and you don't know why
Hey, come on down, you're looking good
If they said ’jump' I really think that you would'cause tv is God and heaven's hollywood
You're digging it round when it should be square
Big square people
When the screen is blank there's no-one there
Big square people
Get up from the chair you look like a slug (? )
Take the tip from the tv go and find a job
But there are no jobs, there is no pay'but that's not what the people on the tv say'
They say to me ’I'll be what you wanna be,
Let's join the army maybe see the sea'
Turn of the brightness, the colour and sound
Turn of the (? ) let's going around
Turn on at daybreak before you're awake
Let's turn it off now before it's too late(turn it off !)
