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 lullabyes
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 lullabyes
On the news tonight"
