Came home stoned from some shitshow down the road
Australia smashed the cop, killed the car standing all alone
When the lights came red all the actors had fled
And I was thinking I could make it true

There's always something wrong with this TV static snow
It's frozen up, the channel's stuck, more things I'll never know
What do I say when I see you this way?
Don't wanna get high just to have to talk to you
But I will, though

Got a face like hell, and a heart full of dirt painted up in fool's gold
I keep it to myself in pockets like my soul, just filled with holes
But you're soft as glass, and I can be a gentle man
Maybe someday I could let you know

The devil starts when the town ends and un-dots all its eyes
Gotta sleep, gotta breathe, no, can't be left behind
But there's hours to fill and I'm all outta pills
Thought that might mean you could come this way again
But goddamn

Well you traced your number across my phone
In a digital screen I said it was romantic, you said no
Never thought you'd be so damn annoyed
I was just trying to be your cathode ray boy
I just wanna be your cathode ray boy
I'm just trying to be your cathode ray boy
Again, hell
