T.V. is enough 
It is providing artificial friends 
And relatives for lonely people
What it is is recurrent families
The same friends and relatives come back
Week after week after week after week
And they're wittier and they're better looking 
And they're much more interesting and they're richer 
Than your real friends and relatives 

 Where is the love from birth  Where it's gone
 Where is the love for humanity  Where it's gone

The love for the children  Respect for the elders  Where it's gone
 Where it's gone

I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know

When will they get it right 
And live in the light 

Rest in the city
 Grace for the nightfall  Rewash my memory 
Turn climb my great wall
 Peace don't desert me
Not in the forest  Grace where I trespass  Calling my goddess 

This is not real
Here is not now
Why do you seek
All that is?

 Where is the love from birth  Where it's gone
 Where is the love for humanity  Where it's gone?

I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
Tell me
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
Tell me
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know
I wanna know

 Dream my grandfather  Dream of great quiet
 Barely a flash between
 Words and blue silence  Gentle this hour
Wet is the highway  Brave are these cowards
Racing, racing, racing, racing away
Racing, racing, racing, racing away
 Racing away

This is not real
