TOOL – Vicarious

Eye on the TV ’cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like:
«Killed by the husband»
«Drowned by the ocean»
«Shot by his own son»
«She used the poison in his tea and kissed him goodbye»
That’s my kind of story, it’s no fun til someone dies

Don’t look me at like I am a monster
Frown out your one face but with the other
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child
Watches him die, hands to the sky cryin,»Why, oh why?»
Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too – don’t lie.

Why can’t we just admit it? Why can’t we just admit it?
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
Neither the brave nor bold will write us the story so
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so
Why can’t we just admit it?

Blood like rain fallin’ down, drown on grave and ground
Part vampire, part warrior, carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmitter sing to the death rattle
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie

Credulous at best your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
But pull your head on out your head please and give a listen
Shouldn’t have to say it all again
The universe is hostile so impersonal, devour to survive
So it is, so it’s always been …

We all feed on tragedy, it’s like blood to a vampire
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.
