about

First single from "A Different Drug" - full EP releases July 2nd.

lyrics

if i could make friends with the television
maybe i won’t feel so alone
like i do, like you do

tune out, it’s just tradition
baby, be american, boy
it’s good for you
it’s what we do

think i need a different drug
the ones i take just ain’t enough
maybe something new is waiting for me on the tube
so maybe i should look again

if i could make friends with the television
maybe i won’t feel so alone
like i do, like you do

they could make jokes i’d laugh along
have a couple beers maybe write a song
to the story, but it ain’t my story

think i need a different drug
i’ve tried sex and i’ve tried love
maybe something new is waiting for me on the tube
so maybe i should look again
