Sorry about the formatting!

 

Verse:

 

'I' is for 'idiotic--'I' is for 'immature',

that's my rating for the media, for sure.

 

It's also rated 'u' for 'un-fricking-believable!'

I didn't think their sad level was even achievable--

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

said level is sub-par and child-like at best.

If you want believe all you see on the news, be my guest!

 

Verse:

 

We viewers are getting ripped, but a lot of us don't know.

Yes, the standards since Walter have fallen mighty low.

 

Used to be T.V. news was a sacred institution,

now stupidity is their one and only contribution.

 

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

They treat us all like we average 10-12 years old,

it's "Shock and Aw, Shit!" Our reactions are controlled.

 

Chorus:

 

Everything we see as fact, should be Rated 'I',

They just accept what is said, and don't question, 'why?'

Just a delivery system for the talking points of the day.

Politicians have learned the toothless media will trumpet what they say.

 

 

Verse:

 

Our sympathy's being played, but in this game

the truth can be a casualty--reality in a frame--

 

the picture changed to fit the network's ideology

and filtered though the lens. Beware of all you see.

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Repeat Chorus:

 

End
