Howard Jones – Power Of The Media lyrics

Flying through the airwaves
Living through 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

The power of the media will make up our minds
The power of the media will take down our minds

Written on the black and white page
We can't believe what we read
Tarting up reality has become the new rage
Who said the truth is stranger than fiction
A few white lies for a nice little sensation
Buy up a paper you can influence the nation

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
When will we get to the real nitty gritty
