Entertain - Sleater-Kinney

So you want to be entertained?
Please look away (Don't look away)
We're not here 'cause we want to entertain
Go away (Don't go away)
Reality is the new fiction they saw
Truth is truer these days, truth is man-made
If you're here 'cause you want to be entertained
Please go away

If your art is done, Johnny get your gun
Join the rank and file, on your TV dial

You come around looking 1984
You're such a bore, 1984
Nostalgia, you're using it like a whore
It's better than before
You come around sounding 1972
You did nothing new with 1972
Where's the "smile You"?
Where's the black and blue

Hey! Look around they are lying to you
Can't you see it's just a silly ruse?
They are lying, and I am lying too.
All you want is entertainment,
Rip me open it's free

1,2,3! If you want to take
a shot at me get in line
1,2,3! I've had all my
shots and I'm fine

1,2,3! If you ahven't had
enought of me, get in line
1,2,3! You too deserve
it now, it's all right

1,2,3! We can drown in
mediocrity, it feels sublime
1,2,3! It feels like someone
pushed rewind

1,2,3! Give it to me easily,
my feeble mind needs time
1,2,3! Make it sweet and
syrupy with rhyme

(Dont drag me down,
I'm not falling down)

The grip of fear is already here
The lines are drawn,
whose side are you on?
