lyrics

You’ve got your own newspaper
But you only publish lies
You’ve got your own TV channel
And you only advertise

You’ve got your own radio station
But each song sounds the same
You’ve got your own whipping boy
Who always takes the blame

One day soon
You’re gonna have to face the truth
That you need us
More than we need you

You’ve got your own football team
But all they do is cheat
You’ve got your own pencil pusher
To write your fake receipts

You’ve got your own ghostwriter
To finish all your books
You’ve got your own plastic surgeon
To fix your dirty looks

One day soon
You’re gonna have to face the truth
That you need us
More than we need you

You’ve got your own police station
But they’re all on the take
You’ve got your own legal team
To bend the laws you break

You’ve got your own hired muscle
So you don’t have to fight
You’ve got that old cocaine habit
To get you through the night

One day soon
You’re gonna have to face the truth
That you need us
More than we need you
