About obsession with the outpourings of the sordid press
it's catastrophic
oh! but,
how we love it
horror sells the morning papers by the score

we read the papers,
for all the gossip,
sometimes we dress it up
and make out that it's news

it's quite horrific
oh! how,
much we need it,
a tragedy we can truly all adore

the schadenfreude
we can't resist it
not just glad it isn't
happening to us

it's truly tragic
so bad,
we have to have it,
another misery tumbles through the door

we should feel guilty,
but we're not gonna,
because we're busy with
our craving for some more.
