No News is Not News

I’m not deaf and I’m not blind,
I see and hear the news,
But the things I see and hear
Are only commentators views.

I want to know the real truth 
Of why our soldiers die. 
We’re told that they’re protecting us. 
Let’s hear the battle cry.

Let’s hear what we’re protected from, 
And what good is being done. 
Or let’s just bring our soldiers home 
And look out for number one.

If we’re protecting interests 
In the oil fields abroad, 
So we can buy our oil there, 
Let’s give up on that fraud.

Let’s use our own oil deposits, 
Right here on our own ground, 
And bring our soldiers home again. 
I think that reasoning’s sound.
