Flying thru the airwaves
Living thru the printed word
Flasher in the living room
Guru of the seen and heard
Who decides what we get to hear?
Fuzzy 'round the edges
Or making it clear?
Blinding us with those facts
Blinding us with those facts

CHORUS
Have You Heard the News?
Wo wo wo wooo
Have You Heard the News?

Written on the black and white page
We can't believe what we read
Doubting of reality
Has become the new rage
Who says that truth is stranger than fiction?
Money [it talks] and it will cause less friction
A few white lies for a nice little sensation

CHORUS

Little box in the corner
A picture worth a thousand words
But who chooses which pictures we see?
Who decides on the commentary?
Keeping people in a state of confusion
There's a thin line between facts and illusion
Diverting our attention from Big Brother in the city

CHORUS
When will we get, when will we get to the real nitty gritty,
Nitty gritty, nitty gritty
When will we get to it, when will we get to it now, when will we get to
It
When will we get to it?
Living thru the printed word
[Flasher] in the living room
Guru of the seen and heard
Who decides what we get to hear?
Fuzzy 'round the edges
Or making it clear?
Blinding us with those facts oh
Blinding us with those facts

CHORUS
Have you heard, have you heard?
CHORUS
