if it bleeds it leads lyrics – dissonant

everybody panic there’s a bomb in thebackyard
everybody run we’re going green to red
just make time for the ballot box
scariest face wins again our way of life is threatened
how many times have you been stabbed, robbed,or beaten
in south central?
did you stock up on sheeting and duct tapefor the big
meltdown?
your mind is under a control a power fueled by your
insecurities
in-between hope and fear
keep your eyes on the tv screen
keep your eyes on the tv screen
if it bleeds it leads
if it bleeds it leads
we are tying the noose around our necks
out of fear for what happens next
in front of our big screen we slit our wrists
for a loss that doesn’t exist
politics and lunatics channel the airwavesfor their
issues
in front of our big screen
exploiting a m*ss ignorance is what they choose to
in front of our big screen
in-between hope and fear
it is so unclear your perception of reality is shown
through a three foot box
we’re all on red alert we are buying intofear
the media’s going platinum the president’sgoing
platinum
we’re all on red alert we are buying intofear
the media’s going platinum thepresident”s already
platinum
in front of our big screen in front of ourbig screen
if it bleeds it leads
leads
politics and lunatics channel the airwavesfor their
issues
in front of our big screen
exploiting a m*ss ignorance is what theychoose too
in front of our big screen
if it bleeds it leads
leads
