Headlines [single]

Giants of Diving

Record Details


Think I’ll spend the day in bed
Computer screen is doing my head in
Headlines are filling me with dread
And I don’t know what to do with it

Another man has been shot dead
Police lawyer says it’s self-defense
Unarmed and his hands were in the air
Spin the news cycle till nobody cares
Headlines have got me running scared
Is that why there are so many there

To make us all afraid
And keep us all in place

Headlines floating in the air
Grab the nearest one that feeds your fear
Put all your faith into a man
Who only tells you what you want to hear

Bow your head and pray
That it will be okay
But it won’t go away
When you look the other way

Headlines aren’t going anywhere
Look behind them to see what’s really there
