Lyrics
The Six 0íClock News

We all stand in line
One behind another
To cleanse our souls
Be at peace
with each other

Does media reflect
The world and it's views
Radio commercials
The six o'clock news

With folded hands
And far away eyes
You cannot hear a sound
Only internal cries

From behind the curtain
I can hear the voices cry
A woman exits
her spotlight
The crowd wonders why
It's not what
meets the eye

Chorus

Where have all the
good people gone
Are we too lazy

The truth is out of focus
And our lives are
tainted and hazy

When killiní and chilliní
is all the rage
And Hollywood opinion
takes center stage
We're not who we used to be
These are different
times you see
Choose or lose-kill a baby
Fight or flight-
Don't tread on me
We all know our rights
are not free
I can still choose
who I want to be
Do you hear the smear,
fear, it's coming
Near hypocrisy
Don't let the kids see

that-it's filthy
Bias in the media?
The truth shall set you free

My father spoke
of times long ago
The minor leagues filled with fans who used to go
Who used to go

Chorus

Time to return
one to one
to the Father
through the Son

Chorus

We need truth
We need love
