The Lyrics

yeah, i was bored. rather vague. not my best. not my worst.
They say it's scary outside, then it's a commercial
They make you worried about the world
They say it's all going to end unless you support the government
And they only smile when they're winning
And their propaganda elevates their ratings

Turn off the TV
It's CNN, it must be lying
Yeah, change the channel
Their job's just to make us scared of it all
They say the war's gonna do us all good, don't believe it

They've got a little bit of facts, but mostly it's all plain fiction
But through the color TV screen, you'll believe that it's all that bad
They swear the nukes are there, just that we can't find 'em
And they only smile when they're winning
And Wolf Blitzer's there, his voice conveys it


You believe the world is made up of trenchcoats and terrorists
And the war on Iraq has been on the screen for days, and days
You think that crazy teens are what caused the world today
Your neighbor just got laid off

This song was actually made in the 90's, but I'll give you 5's anyway because I dislike CNN and you did a fantastic job.
