Pictures On A Video Screen

This song is by Katie Melua and appears on the compilation album The Tracks That Got Away (2012).

I open up one eye and I can see
A million TV screens from wall to wall
And as I look again it seems to me
My picture is projected on them all

From far away I see my body now
I can follow every movement that I make
But I can't remember where I am or how,
Or wether I am dreaming or awake

Sooner or later, I'll believe the world's not round,
I'll turn up the vision, turn up the sound
For I have discovered that I'm not what I seem,
I'm only a picture on a video screen
And sooner or later, when the night comes rolling down,
Fear and confusion are all around
I know that the problems
And the nightmares that I dream
Are only pictures on a video screen

And as I rise to get myself another drink,
It seems like I'm some distance from my brain
I'm looking down and I begin to think
This must be what it's like to go insane

Sooner or later, I'll believe the world's not round,
I'll turn up the vision, turn up the sound.
For I have discovered that I'm not what I seem,
I'm only a picture on a video screen
And sooner or later, when the night comes rolling down,
Fear and confusion are all around
I know that the problems
And the nightmares that I dream
Are only pictures on a video screen

Sooner or later, I'll believe the world's not round,
I'll turn up the vision, turn up the sound
For I have discovered that I'm not what I seem,
I'm only a picture on a video screen
