The News Lyrics

War
A war
A war
On the far side
On the other side of the planet
And I’ve got
War
A war
A war
Right behind my eyes
Right behind em just like a headache

So I turn on
The news
Turn off
The news

Every second our collective heart breaks
All together every single head shakes
Shut your eyes but it won’t go away
Turn on
Turn off
The news

Far
I’m far
So far
From a front line
Quite the opposite I’m safe inside
But I worry and I give money and
I feel useless behind this computer and
that’s just barely scratched the
surface of my mind

So I turn on the news
Turn off the news (damned if you don’t)
Turn on the news (damned if you do)
Turn off the news

Every second our collective heart breaks
All together every single head shakes
Shut your eyes but it won’t go away
Turn on
Turn off
The news

Exploitative
Performative
Informative
We don’t know the half of it
Rhetorical
Deplorable
Historical
And all along we called it normal

All along we call it normal

Every second our collective heart breaks
All together every single head shakes
Don’t get comfortable, don’t look away
Turn on
Turn off
Nothing new
