Doesnít make me proud
Verse 1
Itís like the news has gone paparazzi;
itís a damn disgrace.
Itís violence, sex and tragedy
that theyíre shoving in your face.
Theyíre selling candy coated stories
with saccharine sweet smiles,
glorifying all thatís wrong
to make their ratings rise.
Chorus
I was watching the news today
and man it brought me down.
I donít know how we came to this
but it sure donít make me proud.
Verse 2
Only god knows where the truth has gone
in this crazy life
If it doesnít make em money
Theyíll prefabricate a lie.
Theyíve got a centerfold prostitute
as anchor for the news.
The focus of the broadcast
is centered on her boobs.
Chorus
I was watching the news today
and man it brought me down.
I donít know how we came to this
but it sure donít make me proud.
Verse 3
Has our morality gone bankrupt
that weíve sunk so low?
Now even the national news
is another sitcom show.
Itís the same successful formula
used on all the hits.
Shake em up with violence
then show em her big tits.
Bridge
Murderers and pedophiles
wall street crocodiles
Transgender marriages
are topics worth their while.
Chorus
I was watching the news today
and man it brought me down.
I donít know how we came to this
but it sure donít make me proud.
