"Tabloid Magazine" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
Temperamental editors
Searching for the passion
Overpaid and over-rated
Looking for a cash in

Yeah, it's too late
If you want to read a little
Useless information
If you've had enough
With all the troubles with our nation
Yeah, well don't wait
And you read about 'em

You just can't sleep without
The pages of the magazine
Don't believe in all you read
You can't trust the tabloid magazine
And I'm about to break down

It's just a tabloid magazine
And I don't want to break down
I don't want to break down
Picture hungry journalists
Looking for some action
Running all the stories
Like it's going out of fashion
Yeah, it's too late

Everybody's reading
Everybody else's problems
Everybody's busy stopping
What they haven't started

Yeah, well don't wait
You can read about 'em
And you won't sleep without
The pages of the magazine
But don't belive in all you read
You can't trust a tabloid magazine
And I'm about to break down
It's just a tabloid magazine
And I don't want to break down

I don't want to break down
I don't want to break down
I don't want to break down

Don't want to be around 'em
Better off without them
You know you can't escape them
Don't want to be around 'em
Better off without them
You know you can't escape them
Don't want to be around 'em
Better off without them
You know you can't escape them

And you read about them all the time
From the pages of the magazine
But you can't believe in all you read
Go!

Well it's too late(tabloid magazine)
And you're gonna have to wait(tabloid magazine)
And you won't want turn out the light
Well it's too late(tabtloid magazine)
And you're gonna have to wait(tabloid magazine)
And you won't want turn out the light

It's just a tabloid magazine(breakdown)
It's just a tabloid magazine(breakdown)
It's just a tabloid magazine(breakdown)
It's just a tabloid magazine

    General CommentAbout how despicable and evil people who profit from tabloid magazines are, and how ordinary people are drawn to the personal lives of the famous. Lets leave the celebrities alone, they deserve their privacy!

    General CommentThis song aint just about leaving celebrities alone, its about how simple minded people are and how were feeding the journalists by buying their articles and "useless information. Its about how we care more about whats going on with celebrities and whats written in the magazines then whats going on in the world "and you read about it and You cant sleep with out the pages of the magazine". Its all about how most of what we read in these magazines and articles are false facts just to try and make more money andf sell more articles, "dont believe in all you read".
