Im David Makalaster
Your 10 O'clock newscaster
My lips are moving faster
Than my mind can comprehend
I'm David Makalaster
Your 10 O'clock newscaster
Some call me Mr. mealy-mouth
But think of me as friend

If you believe the things I tell you
I've a bridge or two to sell you
And since I've cut my intake down my liver's on the mend

'Cause I am David Makalaster, your 10 O'clock newscaster, good evening and here's what's new

Isn't it awefully nice
To live in a world
where everything's exactly how it seems?
We live in a world
where all you have to do is sit around and dream
About the things that make you happy
about the things that make you smile
Sit back, relax, apathy's back in style

Im David Makalaster
Your 10 O'clock newscaster
And I verbally execute
Every word I say
I'm David Makalaster
Your 10 O'clock newscaster
Only six percent of America
Thinks that I am gay

If you believe the things I tell you
I've a bridge or two to sell you
And if you see the spider
Don't spoil your curds and whey

    General Comment:THe song is verbal irnoy, they are saying what nirvana would be like, what the world should be like; I personaly think its a great introduction into the dream-like world of purple onin. THe true world is described in the sequal on the album, "David Makalaster II" where the brutal reality is revieled in way that reminds me of Floyd's "In the Flesh". all three are great songs, but only one is fun to visit t.h.c. land while listening to...

    General Comment:I might be wrong, but this song seems to be about apathy and media propaganda. the newscaster is giving you the info about how everything in the world is happy, "all you have to do is sit and dream." Its about the news telling you everything is ok when in reality they are just protecting their interests. "sit back, relax, apathy's back in style"
