lyrics

Newsman
Sing me the blues, man
Please don't cry

I've seen the images
I've heard the screams
I need you to tell me how to feel about the whole thing, yeah?

It's all so horrible
I'm inconsolable
Why don't you sing me something anyway, yeah?

Sing me a lullaby
I'd like to sleep tonight
I've been staring at the news for five days

Newswoman
There's a bad storm coming
Don't look so afraid

You've got a tidy script
You'd be wise to stick to it
We know that we'll be fucked when we wake up
But please just tell us we'll be safe, yeah

We'll all be watching you
So sing us a tune or two
Isn't that what you get paid so much to do, yeah?

Sing us a lullaby
We just might sleep tonight
Maybe we can dream the news away, yeah
Maybe we can dream the news away, yeah
Maybe we will dream the news away.
