shooting, fleeting
get onto the set at night
play it and repeat it
if you don't
then the people won't get it tonight
scripted, heard it
don't it just sound so right
scare tactics
the headlines are keeping us up tonight
and they'll scare us all

shut your windows
and lock all your doors
choke on it

it's something you won't want to miss
exaggerated story lines
you can’t dismiss no
if you don't watch
you might die
struggles, trust me
they won't subside
until something hotter
just burns through the night
and they'll scare us all

    General Commenthmm BlackLungFever that makes sense. like theyre obliged to play their more popular songs to keep fans happy, rather than the songs they want to play

    General Commentnah i'm pretty sure that this song is about the news and media in general feeding you lies to scare you. This song was on the Rock Against Bush comp. and that's what was going on at the time with all the terrorist warnings and shit like that.
