Press Fast Forward

Just another war in the land of the camel...
You don't need to know, you should maybe switch channels.
Bombs and rockets fall on a mosque, a creche, a mall...
But it's not hard to see these are not your people...
You don't need to know that their cities are burning...
Broken minds and bodies, and whole families dying...
Men with hearts of steel, using kids as human shields...
But it's nothing to you, you can't hear them screaming...
 
Press fast forward - hey, don't worry...
It's just some blurry TV show.
No one died in the making of this movie...
No... and no real bodies got buried.
 
Nothing here to see, just keep moving along there...
Some reporter saying you paid for the bombs sir...
Showing you the trek of the wretched and bereft...
Homeless, hungry and lost, far from hope and shelter...
But you don't need to know that they're drowning not waving...
All these leaky boats mean your borders need saving...
You don't have to hear it's an agony of fear...
Put the speaker on mute, that'll stop them bleating...
 
Press fast forward - hey, don't worry...
It's just some blurry TV show.
No one died in the making of this movie...
No... and no real bodies got buried.
