It's For TV

The song of the Island Four Revolutionaries.

Improbable Island isn't real. It's just a fictional TV program, with a large cast.

To the tune of Would you be Impressed?, by the Streetlight Manifesto.

Would be impressed if I told you we were failing?
And every cake they gave us was lie?

Oh! She means it she says we're beat and failed
And every single monster brings us closer to the boat
And who will take the credit for Horatio's quick rage
Because its for TV.

Would you be impressed if I said the crew would help us counting?
Every single time we end up on the boat?
All the time we're spending looking for Dan's quest monster
I just get dizzy when I think of all the requisition we spend to get armour
In fight, and flight, and everything we do
Becuase its for TV.

(Short Instrumental)

Now you're upset becuase the Watcher heard us talking
And everything you had is spinning down Squat Hole
Oh! Do you mean it when you beg and pray and plead?
You're "Giveittomegiveittomegiveittomegiveittome, all the req we need"
And what, pray tell, will you whimper when you end up on the boat?
You'll say "it's all TV"

(Long Instrumental)

The others they'll await you.
And every single one among the lot of you will have your turn,
Ai, Ai, Ai, Oh, Oh, OH!
Like moths that fly into the flame it always ends up so...
You scream: "Not me! Take anybody else! -Because it's all TV!"

(Short Instrumental)

I had a dream last night where everyone was fighting,
Subconsciously I knew it was all TRUE!

And when I woke I knew it was time to pray,
To make amends before the end, before my judgment day.
I looked around, and stood together, I knew what I had to say

I said "It's all real life!"
