"Desensitized" as written by and Dicky/burton Barrett....
Woke up early
On the tenth anniversary
GOOD MORNING
Fit in clips of it
Between food prep shorts
Weather reports
Check the day's commute
And a look at sports
I remember how the wind
Was knocked from me
Before it became footage
A footnote in history
Recently I think I heard it could have been avoided
It shouldn't have occurred
A fundamental obligation
To my parents and my kids LIFE
Gave me a glimpse of it Don't know who shot him
They never caught him
Let's get to the bottom
And blow off the lid
I'm trying to keep a balance
Like the plates on top of sticks
Chip away 'til it goes down
When it goes down apply the kicks
Recently I think I heard
It could have been avoided
It shouldn't have occurred
Sadly we're desensitized
To all the scandals and the cover ups
The conspiracies and lies

    General CommentThe song discusses the way that the media has turned every trivial
    thing into an event. No matter how big or how small the event really is
    the media has the power to turn it into whatever serves them best. The
    song also addresses the idea that because of media and media coverage the
    world is desensitized to images that would ordinarily be very emotional and
    meaningful. The final words of the song are, "Sadly we're desensitized To
    all the scandals and the cover ups The conspiracies and lies."
    We live in a country that one day people are watching television
    and the next thing you know on live television John F. Kennedy is being
    shot. The American public is constantly being bombarded by graphic
    pictures of all backgrounds, from murder scenes to starving children.
    There are constantly stories of conspiracies, scandals, theft, and
    political lies.
