lyrics

Tonight I need something good, so I'm digging for my favorite cd.
You know, the one where I know every word. So I can take those songs with me.
And I'll sing at the top of my lungs, even the words that I know aren't true.

Cuz I need something stuck inside my head besides the news.

Can't take another word, won't watch another screen
and yet the way that we're all broken just keeps echoing.
I'm too worn out to pray, too calloused to believe that things could ever change,
with everything that's going on, could breaking down really be wrong?

Chorus

Oh look, another day there's bad news trending,
and I'm too scared to click and read what's never ending.
What's done is barely done before we try to profit from what's going wrong,
so pick a side and settle in, cuz someone's gotta win this thing.

Cuz there's the thing, and there's the reaction,
and it shouldn't be so hard to see what's worse,
the death or the distraction, so could I just get one day to hurt about the thing
before the reaction...

Tonight I need something good, so I'm digging for my favorite cd.
You know, the one where I know every word. So I can take those songs with me.
And I'll sing at the top of my lungs, even the words that I know aren't true.

Chorus
