Nick Soma - Watching the Riot

Watching the riot on my TV
I gotta say, I like what I see
I gotta say, I just can't wait
To watch that riot escalate

It's fun to watch, I gotta say
People attacked with pepper spray
Houses burn and people scream
It's fun to watch those violent scenes

It's easy to imagine
That this isn't really happening
So I'll just enjoy my dinner
While watching the evening news

I'm watching from a faraway field
I can pretend it all ain't real
What's inconvenient gets ignored
Please kill someone, I'm getting bored

And it's easy to imagine
That it's just a game they're playing
And that some are gonna win that game
And some are bound to lose

"Are you aware, are you aware?
Are you aware?! WAKE UP!" they say
"Are you aware, are you aware?
Are you aware?! WAKE UP!" they say

Nothing's on my mind, my mind
Nothing's ever been on it
Nothing's on my mind, my mind
Nothing's ever been on it

Are you aware, are you aware?
Are you aware?! WAKE UP! they say
Are you aware, are you aware?
Are you aware?! WAKE UP!

Watching the Riot
by Berkeley Social Scene

What do you want to do today?
Take some shit or cause some pain?
I’ve got money on this game
Let’s see who wins on fame

Watching the riot
On a fad diet
Take my brain and fry it on an LCD
Watching the riot
You sell it I’ll buy it
Give my soul away to QVC
x2

There’s more to me than a credit line
Don’t sell me shit that I don’t need
All this noise is just constipation
Tarted up as motivation

Watching the riot
On a fad diet
Take my brain and fry it on an LCD
Watching the riot
You sell it I’ll buy it
Give my soul away to QVC
x2

Bridge
Holy spirit glowing pixels
Shine your light on my addiction
Heaven sent and beneficial
How sweet your soul so artificial

Solo

Chorus
Chorus
Buy now, pay later
Be a sheep, don’t be a hater
x4
