Talking Heads

They keep the news channels on all day

In the work canteen room

And as I walk past I glance at the travesty of it all

Talking heads, talking talking, talking

Crisis! Outrage! Shortage! Crash!

Thursday expect some sleat

And a special report says you should probably eat less red meat

Every tom fool and harry giving opinions

Everyone needing to have opinions

In this crazed up world of I’m right and you’re wrong idiot

Maybe if they shut up talking for a while

They’d understand the real crisis, the real problem

The one in the bed next to you

The ones in your head

The problems living next door

The one walking down the street thinking of TV series and how to pay off debt 

While looking forward to a microwave meal


Most crashes never make the news

And never get opinions
