lyrics

Thirty five millimeters trapped in filmstrip amber
I have only seen you in a video painting
Yet I thought I saw you rendered real
With hair and skin and bone and blood
Standing in the gallery, and we were both observers

Long live the new flesh
Yours is the new flesh
Long live the new flesh
Yours is the new flesh

There's a certain irony with you among the paintings
Thinking feeling as you're looking filling in the gestalt spaces
The Isle of La Grande Jatte and the aura of yourself colliding
I have only seen you when you're trapped inside a narrative
Pretending to be someone else in hues of red and green and blue
Pretending to be someone else in hues of red and green and blue

Long live the new flesh
Yours is the new flesh
Long live the new flesh
Yours is the new flesh

Your name's not yours, your name is your character's
Disappear now more fully into fiction
Let the camera eye take you
Transform and translate you
Broadcast you out as pure information

Get back inside the television
Get back inside the television

Get back in the television, get the clap on television
Long live the new flesh, yours is the new flesh
Get back in the television, get the clap on television
Long live the new flesh, yours is the new flesh

It's only television
That's entertainment
