The media is responsible
for most of our troubles
it doubles as relator
and creator

The riots
the diets
the roar
that never quiets

They whip fear
and anger and frenzy
for money

Anger and rage
are their currency
they will never let us
turn the page

They stir, and stir the pot
until our heart turns cold
and our brains rot

A 24 hour fury
our eyes turn dark
and blurry

They turned day into night
if we listen to them
there will be no light
