The News

Stresses me out.

I like to read the paper and listen to the news and stuff, but after awhile it really starts to stress me out. Like I can't get my head around the things that go on in the world, its all so bad. I don't understand why things are happening, and I feel like we're constantly being lied to, by the media, I feel like I really have no idea about whats going on and no way to find out. I want to cry, everytime I see all the shit other people are going through, like this hurricane, some of the stories coming out of there are heartbreaking. But its not just that its everything, its all the suffering, and killing, and poor and homeless. All the violence freaks me out, I used to live in a safe city, now we have a shooting everyday....why are people killing each other? it doesn't make sense to me.

I can't cry for all of humanity...but I want to sometimes. I hate not understanding.

People kill eachother when they have nothing to live for. There's a strong relation between poverty and crime. Religion is another big reason people kill eachother. Those are 2 of the biggest killers on this planet.

Yeah, the world is pretty fucked. You have to accept it, then focus on the good people. Good friends and family can make the world seem like a much better place.

In fact, I think the small number of good people overrides the vast amount of horrible people.

I feel the same way. I used to read the paper and watch the news everyday but it just got to be too much. Everytime I saw something new I would be sad or angry. I still listen to my local talk radio and occasionally flip by the news but I have stopped paying so much attention to the news.

A billion people died on the news tonight
But not so many cried at the terrible sight
Well mama said
It's just make believe
You can't believe everything you see
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
On the news tonight

Who's the one to decide that it would be alright
To put the music behind the news tonight
Well mama said
You can't believe everything you hear
The diagetic world is so unclear
So baby close your ears
On the news tonight
On the news tonight

The unobtrusive tones on the news tonight
And mama said

Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die?
At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes
Mama said
It's just make believe
You cant believe everything you see
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
On the news tonight

ha ha ha

No, no, no, Mommaaaaa...

All my life I loved this girl so much,
all my life I loved her simple touch.
She cared for me and put me on this earth,
oh the pain of just a simple birth.
But now I find that she has left me dumb and blind,
poisoned, twisted, and destroyed my mind.
She taught me things that simply were not true
she taught me hate for race
that's why I hate you!
There's only one way I can make it right,
momma's gotta die tonight.
There's only one way I can make it right,
momma's gotta die tonight.

I try to stay somewhat informed, but the more informed I get the angrier my blood gets. I just try to find the balance.
