All
the saints and sinners They
pay handsomely MSCAE
they make the weapons And
they run the prisons And
they sell the justice 'Cause
being guilty is just good business Well
we're, standing on the borderline Ain't
no one here going to stop it now Murrow's

turnin' over in his grave Murrow's
turnin' over in his grave Ed
Murrow had a child The
damn thing went wild Murrow's
turnin' over in his grave Murrow's
turnin' over in his grave Ed
Murrow had a child The
damn thing went wild Half-closed

eyes and unconscious death Do
you feel the ooze as your brain drains out From
the pneumatic drills and sharpened knives Blood?
in the sky are, you dead or alive All?
the restless people and the bitter green Well
it, takes this gold make, the spirit mean Murrow's

turnin' over in his grave Murrow's
turnin' over in his grave Ed
Murrow had a child The
damn thing went wild Murrow's
turnin' over in his grave Murrow's
turnin' over in his grave Ed
Murrow had a child The
damn thing went wild

    Lindsey buckingham has said that the song was written to reflect his belief that edward r. Murrow, an iconic journalist in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, would be greatly dismayed by the present-day media. [3] murrow was a great believer of honesty and integrity in delivering news to the people of the world. He said "to be persuasive, we must be believable; to be believable, we must be credible; to be credible, we must be truthful. "
