Coffee & TV Lyrics
One of many zeros
Kicked around bored
Your ears are full, but you're empty
Holding out your heart
To people who never really
Care how you are
So give me coffee and tv...

'Do you feel like a chain store, practically floored.'
-Referring chains of stores that all look the same, very alike and laid out in a uniform way. Similar to social conditioning and schooling which teaches uniformity and practicality.
'One of many zero's kicked around bored'
-Possibly referencing how zeros are used in maths and science but given no credit due to them having no value.
'Your ears are full but your empty, holding out your heart. To people who never really
Care how you are'
-How people mutter all their problems to you, ears full of their words, but there's no care for your problems when it's reciprocated. And of course in the sense that people ask how you are but don't really care to hear the response.
Chorus being, give me something simple and everyday - coffee and tv, not the glamour.
'Do you go to the country, it isn't very far
There's people there who will hurt you
cause of who you are.'
-The country being a simpler place away from the cities, but much more prejudice about people who are different and not from around there.
'Your ears are full of the language, there's wisdom there you're sure, 'Till the words start slurring and you can't find the door'
-I take this to mean the english language, how among all of it there is some good use for it and intelligence. The slurring meaning when people drink alcohol or use speech for hatred, becoming rude and obnoxious, but you feel socially trapped by the pressures to join in and agree.

I think the first verse explains what it is like being a regular person, in the second verse it shows what it is like going back from the world of being famous
