The Lyrics

This song is partly inspired by what AlternateHistoryHub describes as media coverage of mass shootings. I however, would think that news outlets desire for content and ratings could be applied to other stories that are sensationalized but never go quite deep enough. I am also pointing fingers at CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, as I think their ratings are dropping, but they are in denial of admitting viewership is being directed elsewhere. As AlternateHistoryHub (from Youtube) points out, it is a business. A very corrupt-pharmaceutical-monopolizing information-influenced business. Also, I noticed that nobody else had tried to tackle this Coldplay song, seemed somewhat simple to me.
What if there was no script?
Have no spirit to lift
What if you heard just shock?
Without meaningful talk
What if you’d run and hide
That you don’t want, liberals on your side
That conser-vatives, only tell lies

What if comments were brief?
You take them as belief
Could you fend off the attacks
With alter-native facts?
What if you run and hide
That you don’t want, liberals on your side
That conser-vatives, only tell lies

Ooooooh, that’s right
Don’t need to see it in black and white
Ooooooh, that’s right
They’re losing ratings, can’t put up a real fight
Ooooooh, that’s right

Shootings that make air space
Means that profits are being made
Millennials and Gen Z,
Don’t need that cele-brity
What if you run and hide
That you don’t want, liberals on your side
That conser-vatives, only tell lies

Ooooooh, that’s right
Don’t need to see it in black and white
Ooooooh, that’s right
They’re losing ratings, can’t put up a real fight
Ooooooh, that’s right
Ohhhhh
Ooooooh, that’s right
Don’t need to see it in black and white
Ooooooh, that’s right
You know that online gives us much more insight
Ooooooh, that’s right
Btw, I am probably sure there will be a slew of songs in remembrance of Stan Lee coming soon. It would be nice if I knew what kind of music that "marvelous" legend liked. Yes, I am still working on songs for the S.A.E.M. side, so don't bother commenting on your impatience.
