This song is by Graham Parker & The Rumour and appears on the album The Up Escalator (1980) and on the live album The Last Rock'N'Roll Tour (1997) by Graham Parker & The Figgs.

The sun is burning it never changes
The people look up with nothing in their eyeballs
They stare at billboards as if for guidance
There's something wrong here I can't but my finger on
Same thing same way everyday stupefaction
Oh yeah

Drive out on sunset but nothing's moving
The lights are green or is that my imagination
The people sit there
Cameras without action
I can't see the point but I see the attraction
Same thing same way everyday
Stupefaction
Oh yeah

We're going to get clear outa this some day
Because the comfort's so appealing
The bodies so revealing
Just get to feeling like a wheel without traction
Stupefaction
Oh yeah

I ask the landlord how much you making
Don't you get tired of just taking and taking?
I ask the neighbour why are you so stupid?
Giving us those dirty looks and tryin' to murder cupid
Same thing same way everyday
Stupefaction
Ah yeah

We're going to get clear outa this some day
Because the comfort's so appealing
The bodies so revealing
Just get to feeling like a wheel without traction
Stupefaction
Oh yeah

Turn up the TV turn up the radio
Turn up the volume nothing seems to matter
Lay back and slumber bring out the number
Ask the operator what spell we are under it's the
Same thing same way everyday
Stupefaction
Ah yeah

Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Same thing same way everyday
Stupefaction
Ah yeah
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
Stupid stupid stupid hey hey hey
