"Long, Long Way To Go" as written by and Phil Collins....
While I sit here trying to think of things to say
Someone lies bleeding in a field somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go
I've seen all I want to see today

While I sit here trying to move you anyway I can
Someone's son lies dead in a gutter somewhere
And it would seem that we've got a long long way to go
But I can't take it anymore

Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off it will go away
Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off or look away

While I sit and we talk and talk and we talk some more
Someone's loved one's heart stops beating in a street somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go, I know
I've heard all I want to hear today

Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off it will go away (switch it off it will go away)
Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off or look away (switch it off or look away)

Switch it off
Turn it off

    General CommentI think this song is about the world being right and how we still have a "long long way to go" before the world is right and at peace with itself. Sting was amazing in this some btw

    General CommentIt's also about TV/media, and how it's so easy to shut it off and the world's roblems disappear, at least from our eyes. Switch it off...turn it off...etc.
