in the name of tv and of soap
we destroyed laughter love and hope
emotionless souless empty chat
for the party people to get at
and for the sake of a brand new radio
no music from the old piano
with empty minds in bingo games
we're left crying out in shame
to sell your time for a bit of gold
the power of the mind is cheaply sold
to question think and improvise
your way of life this truth denys
so where are the products that we make
with hands and minds the task to take
