A scowling look at the UK media and the utter s**t that they try to convince us is true. Don't you believe a word Murdoch says!!


Pre Chorus

Don’t ask me, (don’t ask me)
Don’t tell me, (don’t tell me)
Don’t let the truth spoil your fun (x 2)


Extra Extra, Read all about it ( x 4)

Vs 1
My fingers in my ears never felt so good
I don’t want to know any more than I should
I don’t bend the knee to any false flag
Or listen when media tongues begin to wag
I can’t make a difference and I wouldn’t care if I could


Vs 2
My life’s a bubble and I built it that way
The man on the hill has nothing new to say
The thirst for power is an ominous trait
I don’t trust anyone that wants that fate
A politician’s promise isn’t worth a whore’s bouquet

Pre Chorus

Vs 3
The unknown actor on a fake stage
Is no better than a voter on Election Day
A democracy isn’t always perfect,
Neither’s the alternative last I checked
But who am I to give the game away

Pre Chorus
