Other Peoples Lives Lyrics

by Duran Duran

Selling exes down the river
Every Katie's got her price
And the details make you shiver
But it's hard to escape
When your head is stuck in vice

Because nothing matters
In the self obsessive age
Where they dare you not to notice
But it's everywhere
In shocking color on the page

In the magazine
Staring out at me
Out of my TV
Other people's lives
Pixelated lives
Just like yours and mine

Every weekend I bear witness
To the social suicides
To the thief who stays for breakfast
To the poster child
Screwing everybody's wife

Yeah, it's just a story
But it keeps me hanging on
For the needy soul
The glory hole confessional
I got to see what's going down

In the magazine
Staring out at me
Out of my TV
Other people's lives
Pixelated lives
Just like yours and mine

Read the headlines
Hear the sirens
I'm re-united
Out of rehab again

But it's everywhere
In shocking color on the page

In the magazine
Staring out at me
Out of my TV
Other people's lives
Pixelated lives
Just like yours and mine

In the magazine
Staring out at me
Out of my TV
Other people's lives
Pixelated lives
Just like yours and mine
