Head Line News

I was going over my Conspiracy Theory "The Fall", when I realized it would make a good punk song. So here it is. The title is tentative, but the Lyrics are set. Not too bad for a once through. Anyone want the song? Contact me for the music that it goes to. Seriously, any bands want a protest song? I think it's catchy enough.



Head Line News


Hey Jackie-O. Yeah what a fuckin' survivor/
Gets paid and laid for not screamin' "it was an insider”/
You think she jumped out for a piece of his head?/
Then she married a King? Too bad Johnny’s dead./

We are fed the right reaction/
By weapons of mass distraction/
But in the end who dies?/
Just us... Cuz’ the News Lies!/

Just take a look at Waco, and what have ya got?/
The FBI lying 'bout not firing a shot./
You know it’s fuckin' wrong if they’re having to lie./
If you’re too scared to speak, kiss freedom goodbye!/

Oklahoma City building, Ka- fuckin boom!/
The bomb squad was early, so they left to make room./
Come on people, what the fuck? It just doesn’t fit./
That that was just a redneck with a truckload of shit!?/

We are fed the right reaction./
By weapons of mass distraction./
But in the end who dies?/
Just us... Cuz’ the News Lies!/

On 911, why was Cheney giving the Orders?/
Ain’t no Vice commander in Chief defending our borders/
Bush was in... competent, we weren’t a man down./
“Have you heard anything to the Contrary?” Dick, why’d ya stand down?

Hey sheeple, what the fuck just toppled the towers?/
A dying fire or a liar piss drunk on Power?/
Our defense budget’s beaten by a shave and a bath?/
Or Neo-Cons banking that you can’t do the math?/

We are fed the right reaction./
By weapons of mass distraction./
But in the end who dies?/
Just us... Cuz’ the News Lies!/

Once again please tell, why we went to Iraq,/
Who sold us that crap.? Who said “we gotta attack”?/
The Countdown to War. Remember who set the clocks?/
Wasn’t it, A-B-C-N-N-B-C-B-S and FOX?/

Here ya go suz... an unpublished...


Not one more God damned love song/
This time the pain goes on and on/
Travelled time and space... Still the same/
Nothing will ever hide this shame/

See your eyes every night/
Damn my eyes and damn their sight/
Damn the thoughts inside my brain/
I can never go home again.

Soul is gone, life is lost/
I paid the price but not the cost/
Never dreamed... Wide Awake/
Let me rest. The Devil take... me now

All that's left, been shoved aside/
A life of living suicide/
I remain, can't complain/
Just left alone to go insane/

Fighting instincts, love you still/
but reality crushes the will/
so damn the thoughts inside my brain/
I can never go home again!
