“As the World Tunes”
October 2005

I sit and stare at the TV screen
I’m not paying attention to anything
Get outta the way
My show’s on
What are you trying to say
Where have you gone
I can’t help but stare in awe
My eyes glaze over
And I tune out
No way I could hear it
I’m turning up the volume
And I’m tuning you out

I like the title of this one because it’s a pun. I like puns.

Anyway, I want to point out that I hate televisions in restaurants. I wrote this on a napkin at a pizza parlor where I met with a couple friends for band practice/discussion. I was having a really hard time following the conversation because of the sports channel that was on. You could say I was inspired by my irritation.
