I COVER MY EARS

( 1999 REJ2)

Mothers drowning babies
Husbands stabbing wives
The stronger dominate the weak
Belittling our lives
No "ifs", "ands", "buts", or "maybes"
We're only getting worse
The words of comfort that you speak
I'm sure that you rehearse

So I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
I just cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
If I can lose myself
The world can disappear

They thrive on exploitation
(The papers and TV news)
Redefining humanity
To corporation views
We suffer our poor nation
To the media's abuse
I'm on the edge of sanity
But I can't shake it loose

So I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
Yeah, I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
I'll just keep to myself
To all that I hold dear

Bitterness
Black dispair
Boiling madness
Everywhere

So I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
I cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
I just cover my ears
I don't want to hear it
If I keep to myself
The world can disappear

If I can fool myself
I'll make it disappear
