ain’t watchin’ the news no longer
they got to be makin’ it up
the world can’t be this crazy
think i’ll just take a nap

don’t pretend it doesn’t matter
it matters a whole lot
but it’s got to be your voice that says it
not a copy of some other’s plot

there’s got to be more than killin’
hate and abuse
yet all i see is blind men followin’
truth as an excuse

but none of it’s true i gather
it’s a scripted reality show
so i’ll let them believe it’s somethin’
when it ain’t worth a blow

ain’t watchin’ the news no longer
they got to be makin’ it up
the world can’t be this crazy
think i’ll just take a nap
