News of the world Lyrics

News of the world by Wildhearts  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


News of the world Here’s the eighth of the seven wonders
Here’s the pay off without a crime
Here’s to all the baby shit so major at the time
From the last of the great pretenders
To the new television age
And the few who still remember passion over rage

We changed, we didn’t even try
We opened up our mouths
Telling all those lies to ourselves
And everybody else

Cos we’re just wanters not needers
Hypocrites and cheaters
This is the news of the world
Pseudo heroes masturbating our egos
This is the news of the world
The news of the world

I could hide in the foreign legion
I could live in the south of France
I could think of a thousand reasons
Given half the chance
But the pricks are the whole world over
Every sex, every colour of skin
Maybe we’re just too far gone to change the mess we’re in

We changed, we didn’t even try
We opened up our mouths
Telling all those lies to ourselves
And everybody else

Cos we’re just wanters not needers
Hypocrites and cheaters
This is the news of the world
Pseudo heroes masturbating our egos
This is the news of the world
The news of the world

Take me far away from it all
The news of the world

What’s next? I got my bills to pay
What’s next? I need a holiday
What’s next? I got police upon my back
What’s next? Internal politics
What’s next? Some humans make me sick
The fakes, the judges, liars, greed
The laws that judge the life I lead
The fucked up shit that I don’t need

Wanters, wanters, wanters, wanters

Cos we’re just wanters not needers
Hypocrites and cheaters
This is the news of the world
Pseudo heroes masturbating our egos
This is the news of the world
The news of the world
The news of the world
The news of the world
The news of the world
The news of the world
