lyrics

Dateline: February 11 in the year 2007
You may want your kids to leave the room
Some graphic content is coming soon
Down the street some kids got shot
More bombs went off this week in Iraq
Nobody will admit that he's wrong
And I'm trying to finish up one more song
The weather man says it's gonna rain hard
Should you walk to work or take the car?
Terror and danger everywhere
And everyone says we should all be scared
Seems like it's getting worse every day
Bad news keeps on coming our way
But you can't let it get you down
We'll find a way to get by somehow

Fishwrap - The news isn't always true
Fishwrap - Don't let it get to you
Fishwrap - Between the lines they're selling ads
And it stinks like fishwrap

Next story: Wack MCs who miss the point of raps like these
Reading off your notebook, fronting like you're hard
But your raps come across like you're reading off a cue card
Stiff and stale, like day-old bread
Your lips spill tales of hate and dread
Bogus, like Fox News.
Are you saying you're fair and balanced, too?
Ooh, did I hit a soft spot?
Looks like you're finally getting caught out
Now everyone knows about your lies and the life you sold
And when your 15 minutes are gone, how will you feel about what you've done?
Did you try to make the world a better place or just try to scoop more on your plate?

Fishwrap - The news isn't always true
Fishwrap - Don't let it get to you
Fishwrap - Between the lines they're selling ads
And it stinks like fishwrap

Tonight we'll close with one last thought: You gotta keep your head up when things get tough
February 11 and it's raining but life is good so stop complaining
Be careful about what you put in your head
Search for the truth and get out of bed
There's only one way to make things better
We all have to pull together
