There are people in the telly who all want a piece of me
There are people in the telly who are after my money

Meaning

T.W.i.N.S's official lyric explanation


It’s about the commercialist world we live in and in how that you are constantly reminded that you need this thing. It’s not even about what you’re wanting or possibly might fancy - It’s like you need it! You’re always being told you need things that you don’t really need.

I have a friend who owns three iPads. He tells me he needs them. It’s quite weird.

I think that song is about that, it’s about the, kind of, brainwashing through the medium of television and the rest of media - be it the Internet or radio - telling us how we should be and what we need to buy.
