"If the News Makes You Sad, Don't Watch It" as written by and Jamie Sutherland....
Go watch the TV
Tell me what you see
All these bleeding wounds
And rising seas, they don't mean much to me
From the couch here, I plead apathy

The politicians, they don't speak for me
A wreck's a wreck, atleast that's what I see
And your faith you keep, is it dark now?
It's waiting for me

So stop the bad dreams
Stop the headaches
And leave a little light
Like when you say it's alright
Like when you say it's alright
Well, I guess it is

Go watch the TV
Tell me what you see
Any hope and love or realised dreams?
That's what I want to see
No more pain, no tears, no more grief

So stop the bad dreams
Stop the headaches
And leave a little light
Like when you say it's alright
Like when you say it's alright

So sing to me, I love it when
You sing to me, I love it when
You sing to me, I love it when
You sing to me, I love it when
You sing

    General CommentMy favorite song by this band, it's very hopeful as it kind of says that no matter how messed up the world really is, there are still people out there who love you and manage to make your life worth living.
