Lyrics

Extra, extra read all about it

Front page starts as an empty canvas
'til black-lined headlines make sensational fear a fact
The next craze is a murder spree
I'm convinced you'll regret hearing anything other than me
So come back in, unplug your ears
And lean close as I spit acid shaped like fear

Take heed open your ears

Welcome to the time of special interests
Monetized bottom line
If it don't earn we won't tell
One small fee for us
Peace of mind for you
We'll feed you what you wanna hear
And count up our revenue

The world is ending
Don't try to kid yourselves
Every day something new
To convince you that you won't make it through
Here's our product
It keeps you safe and sound
At least distracted 'til you're down in the ground

Abandon hope, ye who enter here
The world is filled with all of your deepest fears
Keep focused with your eyes on the flowers
And don't think about the gun that's pressed to your skull

Listen while I lie
In such convincing ways
I turn my truth for just that light that makes you all afraid

Trust no one
You're surrounded
Everyone
Is in on it
So will you choose to do something about it
Or did you forget that culture's a product

We'll never have time to buy plots of earth
I guarantee that this sickness will kill us first
We'll never have time to buy plots of earth
I should be laughing right now

Abandon hope, ye who enter here
The world is filled with all of your deepest fears
Keep focused with your eyes on the flowers
And don't think about the gun that's pressed to your skull

God willing, we'll own you all your life

I ink my stories with the screams of the dying
Still I rejoice 'cause my net gains are rising
I make my living off the fear you're providing
My needs are met by all the tears you're supplying

Abandon hope, ye who enter here
The world is filled with all of your deepest fears
Keep focused with your eyes on the flowers
And don't think about the gun that's pressed to your skull

The murderer's and rapists
Read all about it
The cold sweat and distress
Read all about it
The serial hatred
Read all about it
All your fears, created
Read all about it
