She also performed “TV”, which had not yet been released at the time, at her stop in Manchester, England in concert. Happier than ever tour June 7th. The song touches on the theme of abandoning friendships for romance, although it may not be worth it due to the toxic conditions.

I don’t want to talk right now
i just want to watch tv
I’ll stay in the pool and drown
So I don’t have to watch you leave
I put on survivor Just watch someone suffer
Maybe I should get some sleep
I sink into the sofa while everyone betrays each other.
What’s the point in anything?
In the first verse, Billy describes what is likely a depressive episode (a la Rue from Euphoriaseems) while she is watching a reality show, survivorjust to feel something. She questions the general intentions of people and mentions her insomnia, which she has been open about since the early days of her career. Her sleeping habit and nightmares also inspired her debut album. When we all fall asleep, where do we go? in 2019.
In March 2022, Billie revealed Magazine V about her struggle with sleep. “I had a lot of really, really incredibly horrific nightmares. I had a strange sleep paralysis. It was just a bad period for my brain. I couldn’t sleep,” she said. “I went to bed at about four in the morning and woke up at one in the afternoon. And I listened to this meditation app every time I needed to take a breath and not think about the horrors that were happening in my soul.” intelligence.”
All my friends are gone again
This is what happens when you fall in love
You don’t have time, you leave them all behind
You tell yourself that it’s okay, you’re just in love
The chorus touches on the rejection of your friends as you enter into a new relationship. Billy assures herself that it’s worth it because she’s “just in love”, but it doesn’t sound like she believes the words she says.
Don’t know where you are now
Have you seen me on TV?
I’ll try not to starve myself
Just because you’re mad at me
And I’ll be in denial, at least for a while
What about the plans we made?
The internet has gone crazy watching movie stars on trial
While they tip Rowe vs Wade
There is a lot of unpack in the second verse. Billy refers to his rising superstar when he asks the subject if they’ve seen her on TV – perhaps in a talk show interview or in a live performance. She also says that she will try not to starve herself in order to satisfy this theme, which is in line with her lyrics in “Male Fantasy”, the last track from her second album. Happier than ever.
She seems to have a lot of emotions to deal with, from her current love failing to the aftermath of edgy cultural moments. At the end of the verse, she apparently refers to the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard trial that took the internet by storm from April to June 2022, and even calls on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, which once protected abortion rights. . In the United States.
Billy has been outspoken about her position in the fight for reproductive rights in the past. In October 2021, she nearly canceled a performance at Austin City Limits after learning of Texas’ abortion ban. “When they passed this shitty law, I almost didn’t want to do the show. Because I wanted to punish this fucking place for allowing this to happen here,” she began. “But then I remembered that you guys are the fucking victims and you guys deserve everything in the world. And we should tell them to shut up! My body, my fucking choice!”
And I don’t get along with anyone
Maybe I am the problem
Maybe I am the problem
Billy admits that she, too, may have flaws and that she may have been a problem in certain relationships that she writes about on TV.
