Captains of industry
Steering our ship into troubled seas
And telling some lies to you
Pretending they're true in the hopes
That you might believe

Lately I feel strange vibrations
A new sound comin' in
But I ain't got the hair to keep up
With the current trends
The TV says the sky is falling
The papers said the same
The rich man knows the shots he's calling
Says he ain't to blame

Well that's not what I heard
I don't believe it to be true
Must be mistaken
Communication coming through
That's not what I heard
Oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh

The workers wonder why they're comin'
To take away their homes
And jobless kids who can't get rid of
All them student loans
And meanwhile mama slowly dies of
Some unknown disease
Conditions pre-existing somehow
Don't sound right to me

'Cause that's not what I heard
I don't believe it to be true
Must be mistaken
Communication coming through
That's not what I heard
Oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh

You best start asking questions
And hold bare feet to the fire
Set course a new direction
Set ablaze an old empire
Oh yeah

'Cause that's not what I heard
I don't believe it to be true
Must be mistaken
Communication coming through
That's not what I heard
Oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh
