Song from the band in my head

Verse:
In a darkened room there's a flickering light,
Long after midnight on a storm-ravaged night
A wizard dreams potions in his delusional brain
Madness howls inside like the wind and the rain
 
Pre-Chorus:
Cable News his sole window on the state of play,
Feeds his ego and keeps reality away
 
Verse:
Two-twenty sends a current to color his view
Whispers strategy in his ear on what he should do
Hypnotizes, tantalizes, immortalizes his name
Only skin-deep, but it's the root of his fame
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
Cable News his sole window on the state of play,
Feeds his ego and keeps reality away
 
Chorus:
 
The king maker shows him what he wants to see,
This self-appointed God in the land of the free
Channels adoration, respect and fear
Whispers he has power and wisdom in his ear
 
Verse:
Such a slender tether to the here and now
Anything critical he's quick to disavow 
Sees unhinged through the unblinking eye
Pre ordained, the power from on high 
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
Cable News his sole window on the state of play,
Feeds his ego and keeps reality away
 
Chorus:
 
The king maker shows him what he wants to see,
This self-appointed God in the land of the free
Channels adoration, respect and fear
Whispers he has power and wisdom in his ear
 
End
