about

We've all had toxic people in our lives—the sort of folks who wear your soul down as you're busy convincing yourself, no really, hanging out with them is a great time! "Live TV" is about the liberating moment that you realize your friend is, in reality, no friend at all and you deserve better.

lyrics

It was 2011 the last time
I turned on the TV
We were having the time of our lives
I was waiting for the ball to drop

It was 11:00 when I realized
that I did not belong there,
watching reruns of your favorite shows
I already knew the plot

I became all my bad advice
That was no kind of life

It was the right time to get out
You know that I ain't even sad

It was precisely 11:59
when I came to the storefront
A glimmer of hope in the eyes
of a city on live TV

And I could see it from where I stood
The future looked good

It was the right time to get out
(You know what?)
It was the right time to get out
You know that I ain't even sad
