about

The song was originally written in 2008/2009, so we dusted it off and refurbished it for the current era. It is about reality television, the Internet, and the cult of personality.

lyrics

Made for TV

These feet walk the streets,
To meet the means to know them.
Engrossed and fatigued,
The double speak the keeps that ensnare them.

Ideals & Idols,
Real or surreal.
Ethics & morals,
Merge to appeal.

Made for TV,
Spectacles and Parody.
Made for TV,
Bravery… no fear.

I’m American as I can be.
I was made, made for TV.
Carbon copy American Dream,
Paltry and made for TV.
Darling won’t you dance with me?
We were made, made for TV.
Won’t you love this human being?
Who was made, made for TV.

“Art is the proper task of life.” - Nietzsche -
No more wasting these pen strokes.
In art, I’ll find peace and quiet,
No more neglecting what life wrote.

Ideals & Idols,
Real or surreal.
Ethics & morals,
Merge to appeal.

Made for TV,
Spectacles and Parody.
Made for TV,
Bravery… no fear.

I’m American as I can be.
I was made, made for TV.
Carbon copy American Dream,
Paltry and made for TV.
Darling won’t you dance with me?
We were made, made for TV.
Won’t you love this human being?
Who was made, made for TV.
