The Press Corpse

The (Downing Street) memo says…
…We gotta work to make the facts fit the false charges
Pull the wool over the eyes of the filthy masses
Stab the people in the back for the corporate choice
Roll the propaganda out using The People's Voice

We don't want to talk about it…

The press scribble scribble every half-truth spoke
Then shoot it round the country like an April Fools joke
Hype the nation for a Desert Storm love affair
Wave the stars and stripes like you just don't care!

They talk it up all day, talk it up all night
Talk until their face turns blue - Red white and blue!
But when the truth escapes the night and crawls into the day
We find the picture still askew

They don't want to… talk talk talk talk talk about it
They want tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and mindlessly salute
They don't want to talk about it
They want tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and cowardly salute

And on the TV screen…
…Diversion and aversion is the flavor of the day
Was it WMDs? Or Democracy?
Blame it on MI-6 or the CIA
The White House Press Corpse only has one thing to say…

"We don't want to talk about it!"

The White House boils over, "Al Jazeera got it wrong!"
The Press Corpse jumps onboard singing the White House song
While over in Iraq thousands are dead because of lies
The spineless war drumming-press corpse have taken lives

They talk it up all day, talk it up all night
Talk until their face turns blue - Red white and blue!
But when the truth escapes the night and crawls into the day
We find the picture still askew

They don't want to… talk talk talk talk talk about it
They want tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and mindlessly salute
They don't want to talk about it
They want tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and cowardly salute

Fires fueled on endless lies
Black shrouds coat desert skies
A nation's viewpoint blurred and led
As embeds report what they're fed

O Cadáver da Imprensa

O memorando Downing Street diz...
...Nós temos que trabalhar pra fazer os fatos se encaixarem com as falsas acusações
Coloque a venda sobre os olhos das sujas massas
Esfaqueie as pessoas nas costas pela escolha corporativa
Rode a propaganda usando a voz do povo

Nós não queremos falar sobre isso...

A imprensa transcreve transcreve cada mei a verdade falada
E então espalha ela pelo país como uma piada de primeiro de abril
Leva a nação a um caso de amor com Desert Storm*
Agite as estrelas e listras como se voce não se importasse

Eles falam sobre isso o dia todo, a noite toda
Falam até que as suas faces se tornam azuis - Vermelhas, brancas e azuis!
Mas quando a verdade escapa das trevas e engatinha para a luz
Nos encontramos uma cena ainda duvidosa

Eles não querem..falar, falar, falar,falar sobre isso
Eles querem dar voltas ao redor na ponta dos pés
Agite a bandeira e estupidamente faça uma saudação
Eles não querem falar sobre isso
Eles querem na ponta dos pés, rodear o assunto
Agite a bandeira e covardemente faça uma saudação

E na tela da TV...
...Diversão e aversão é o sabor do dia
Foram as ADM*? ou Demorcracia?
Culpe o MI-6 ou a CIA
O cadaver da imprensa da Casa Branca só tem uma coisa a dizer...

Nós não queremos falar sobre isso!

A casa Branca ferve, Al jazeera entendeu tudo errado!
O cadaver da imprensa pula por cima cantando a musica da casa branca
Enquanto no Iraque milhares estão mortos por causa de mentiras
A invertebrada imprensa cadaver tocadora de tambores de guerra tem tirado vidas

Eles falam sobre isso o dia todo, a noite toda
Falam até que as suas faces se tornam azuis - Vermelhas, brancas e azuis!
Mas quando a verdade escapa das trevas e engatinha para a luz
Nos encontramos uma cena ainda duvidosa

Eles não querem..falar, falar, falar,falar sobre isso
Eles querem dar voltas ao redor na ponta dos pés
Agite a bandeira e estupidamente faça uma saudação
Eles não querem falar sobre isso
Eles querem na ponta dos pés, rodear o assunto
Agite a bandeira e covardemente faça uma saudação

Incendios abastecidos por mentiras sem fim
Cortinas negras cobrem os ceus do deserto
O ponto de vista de uma nação embaçado e controlado
Enquanto empacotados dizem o que eles comem
