Bullshit is Bullshit

Ahem. To the tune of Depeche Mode's "People Are People":

CHORUS:

Bullshit is bullshit

So why should it be

I should give a fuck about what's on TV?

Bullshit is bullshit

So why should it be

I should listen to the drivel spewed at me?

Now the working day is ended, I turn on my TV

Hoping to see something good but what do I see?

More pundits and more gibberish, more sanitized views

Of something that could only loosely be called the news

I ain't got no clues

What makes the news

Such a fucking snooze

Please give me some clues

(CHORUS)

The news tonight is bomb threats and a terror alert

And Paris Hilton's lame attempts to banter and flirt

The president's an asshole and the veep is a dick

And the Botox in the water system's making us sick

I ain't got no clues

What makes the news

Such a fucking snooze

Please give me some clues

(CHORUS)

So I'm sitting on my sofa and I'm watching the tube

Wondering why in God's name do I feel like a boob

The news is superficial, it's all drama and hype

Why am I sitting up late just to watch so much tripe?

I ain't got no clues

What makes the news

Such a fucking snooze

Please give me some clues

(CHORUS)

I ain't got no clues

What makes the news

Such a fucking snooze

Please give me some clues

(repeat, fade)
