USUALLY, I DON’T LISTEN TO THE NEWS

 

Usually, I don’t listen to the news
It can be trivial, political
But it’s never new
Usually, I’m not tripping so I don’t blow fuses
But this gets to me

No protest, no debate
No sermon on anti-hate
But why can’t my girl be safe?
How does lust turn into rape?
To say, “It’s a shame,” ‘s a disgrace
It’s an abomination
An outrageous occasion
Insane

Usually, I don’t listen to the news
I can be critical, ’cause it’s comical
How many stories they get through
Usually, I make music so I don’t need fuel to muse
But this get to me
It gets to me

No judgment, no complaint
Who cares what I have to say
But why can’t these kids just play?
What’s feeding this foul play?
And every day?
It’s commonplace
It’s the same story, different day
And it’s not a replay
No, this just in today

Usually, I don’t listen to the news
I don’t listen to the news
I don’t listen to the news

No protest, no debate
No sermon on anti-hate
But why can’t my girl be safe?
How does lust turn into rape?
To say, “It’s a shame,” ‘s a disgrace
It’s an abomination
An outrageous occasion
Insane

No judgment, no complaint
Who cares what I have to say
But why can’t these kids just play?
What’s feeding this foul play?
And every day?
It’s commonplace
Same story, different day
And it’s not a replay
No, this just in today
