"Take me back or I'll drown our dog."
Love those headlines
Love those headlines

"CIA is breeding slaves"

Need those headlines
Crave those headlines

"Designer beef"
"Surfing for Christ"
"Horse molester must be stopped"
"Police kill man to stop suicide"
"City burns, Party goes on"

Headlines-I wanna hear some
Good News-Even if it's a lie
Scandal-For me to gaze on
Entertain me tonight

"Happy day ends in death"

Love those headlines
Need those headlines

"Pollution signals opportunity"

Need those headlines
Crave those headlines

"Viruses from AIDS lab sold"
"Easter Bunny arrest shocks children at mall"
"April slated as Child Abuse Month"
"Donate blood and win prizes"

Hey! what's your favorite cartoon?
Mine's the Prime Time News
Nightline, Twin Peaks, or the Simpsons
Are all about as real as...

Headlines-We all believe
Good News-What we wanna believe
Why let- truth get in the way
of a good story

Spin Control
Stress Control
Image Doctors
Photo ops
So much goes in
And comes right back out
Of my mind

"Vegetarian terrorists"
"Autopsies of the rich and famous"
Reenact a crime
It's real enough for me...

"A hopping mad Madonna stormed out of a Hollywood beauty
parlor-after discovering the staff was selling her toenail clippings"

"Used to be millions of mummies before the Egyptian railroads
bought them by the ton and used them for locomotive fuel"

"Motorcycle courier John Orchard was fined $400 after 50,000 hypodermic needles
fell from his cycle on a busy highway and punc- tured the tires on 141 cars"

"two weeks later, While they were eating ham- burgers at a drive-in,
Jim-and I just love this part-put an onion ring on Sandy's finger and asked her to marry him"

Hey!
This is how life should be
So I'll pretend it is
Happy news
For Happy people
With Happy problems

Headlines-tell a person something
Good news-Long enough they'll believe
Anything-What they think is real
Instead of what they see
