lost a friend lyrics – james

my t.v. is staring at me
it says “go to sleep
go to sleep”
turns me into a siamese twin
where do i start?
the tv screen begins…
plugs me into some holy geek
his point in life is incomplete
my tv is telling me
that only money will make me happy
hold the course and then sail

across the sattelite beams
across the oceans and seas
to the lighthouse i could be
i see some soldiers with guns
and they are killing for fun
they are killing to entertain me

caught between that world and this
i’d sell my soul for a bond girl’s kiss
caught between that world and this
i’d sell my soul for a state of bliss

my tv is telling me
that all our money
goes into the military

hold the course and then sail

across the sattelite beams
across the oceans or seas
to the lighthouse i could be
i see some soldiers with guns
and they are killing for fun
they are killing to entertain me
and then i heard your name
as the sp*ceman came
he came right thru my screen
and then his lifeline broke
he began to choke
jump cut to another scene

lost a friend to the sea
i lost a friend to the sea
