Stupid Global Village

      Mothers grab your babies
      and hold them to your breast
      Somewhere something's happening
      and they say your town might be next

      You hear reports of gunfire
      and terrible misdeeds
      There's a time bomb ticking somewhere
      and they say it's coming home to breed

      There's panic in the streets
      and we're all tuning to the news
      Well something happened somewhere
      as if it happened here to you

        There's poison in the water
        and cancer in the air!
        But it makes for lousy television
        which makes it really hard to care

      Across the globe a bullet
      rips through unsuspecting flesh
      And somehow someone scary
      says that your town could be next

        There's poison in the water
        and cancer in the air!
        But it makes for lousy television
        which makes it really hard to care

          Stupid global village
          well it didn't happen here
          There are far more things that matter
          than drowning in your fear
