I'm not a writer.....

I'm a thief, I must use other people's words to express how I really feel. So here it is.

The News (lyrics by Jack Johnson)

A billion people died on the news tonight
But not so many cried at the terrible sight
Well mamma said, it's just make believe
You can't believe everything you see
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
On the news tonight

Whos the one to decide that it would be alright
To put the music behind the news tonight
Well mamma said you can't believe everything you hear
The diagetic world is so unclear
So baby close your ears
On the news tonight
On the news tonight
The unobtrusive tones on the news tonight

Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die
At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eye
But mamma said its just make believe
You can't believe everything you see
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
On the news tonight
