The Lyrics

I GUESS THAT’S WHY THEY BRING US THE NEWS

You’ve seen it today
No doubt it will be on forever.
And as you can see they will go on and say
That things will never get better.
If they had their way
There would be nothing to hide,
It’s been going on ever since time began,
And something we feel deep inside.

And I guess that’s why they bring us the news,
From round the world here to me and to you,
Telling us stories, showing us places,
Scenes of destruction, pitiful faces,
And I guess that’s why they bring us the news.

You’ve seen it before,
And yet there’s more of the same.
Men who are fighting while others are dying,
It all gets reported each day.
We’re all to blame
Wondering just what’s going on,
Living each moment, just as we have done,
Since time in memoriam.

And I guess that’s why they bring us the news,
From round the world here to me and to you,
Telling us stories, showing us places,
Scenes of destruction, pitiful faces,
And I guess that’s why they bring us the news.

They bring us the news that advertisers choose to buy time for. See CNN's non-stop coverage of Flight 370.
