Mass medium

And as history slips out of view bated breath for the nine o’clock news
reassembled right before your very eyes: innuendo rumour and lies
Endless fun and games steal a headline, name some names
we’re so proud that our press feel so free to manipulate them you and me
And as each campaign begins to absolve us of our sins
I see freedom sold by the yard it’s so easy why make it hard?
