Da Wizard

I believe that the creators of the news hire crews
To batter and abuse all the clues and keep us all confused
And leary of leaving your home
For the fear of the unknown
And now they got you in a zone
Believing only what they've shown
Until your mind is blown from the badness
Sadness, madness, very little gladness
Until you buy protection from your fears
But how do you kill a fear
They've got you where they want you
In a life that's plus and minus
You might as well use your anchor man as a security blanket
And change your name to Linus
It's easy to control the metropolis
With the amount of negativity that's fed to the populace
But you 've got to keep it clear
Too much can cause rebellion
But the right amount can cause fear
Enough to cause lack of trust
Enough to cause hatred and disgust
Enough to make you lust
Enough to make a little kid grab the gun an bust
Enough to make you leave your lover in the dust
Enough to make you cuss
And if it wasn't bad enough to handle
They hit you with the 24 hour a day newschannels
Trying to keep us all in grief with no relief
They got you gritting your teeth and waiting for someone to beef
They giving you the foul run of it, flaky government
Here is the news, they need to put the word bad in front of it
You think that's ill, check me
The news is a criminal's blueprint on doing crime correctly
And good deeds go unheard of
But you hear about crime, the bad politics and of murder
And it's hard to read into the subjects that they lead into
They bleeding you with this illness they feeding you
Until you get full, from what you thought was a brand new cow
But it was the same old bull
Stop being blinded
Stop being metally sleighed with this nickel and dime shit
We don't have to be reminded
Cause if you search for yourself then the truth is where you find it

Stop being blinded
Stop being metally sleighed with this nickel and dime shit
We don't have to be reminded
Cause if you search for yourself then the truth is where you find it

I'm not too happy with all this shit I see on TV
It's gotten to me and all I do is stay confined to my misery
Locked away looking at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC
Kosovo depressed me, China scares me
Y2K is coming to get me
And all I see when I turn on my local news TV is the newest remedy
For me to cure my case of my HIV
Or Syphyllis or Herpes, because 20% of Americans have it
So you know that means me
I look at the world pesimistically
And I discovered it looks the same right back at me
The world is out to get me
Salesmen try to jerk me, drunk drivers aiming their cars at me
And high school nerds are trying to hurt me
I don't eat beef, because the government laces it chemically
But I can admit I'm addicted to chicken
The steroid-enhanced original white meat
An Arab killed an Israli, an Indian a Pakistani
A cop killed a homeless lady in Cincinnati
Is it just me or is the world really that crazy
That I can't even go to the mall
To get myself a pair of new Nikes
Cause someone might rob me on my way out of Starbuck's coffee
Here you go man it's just a latte and my money
I'll I got is a buck-thirty
But you know they'll take it all according to TV
And it's negativity
Last night on TV I saw death and disease
I saw rape and conspiracy
I saw shit I hoped would never happen to me
I saw kids with no feet and kids with no teeth living poverty
And complete misery. I also saw a new high on Wall Street
More money made today than ever in history
But none was giving to me or those kids that preceded
Fuck the media and be wary of your local news stories on TV
Stop being blinded
Stop being metally sleighed with this nickel and dime shit
We don't have to be reminded
Cause if you search for yourself then the truth is where you find it

Stop being blinded
Stop being metally sleighed with this nickel and dime shit
We don't have to be reminded
Cause if you search for yourself then the truth is where you find it
