5 O'clock News

Could you paint a darker picture if you tried? 

Does your conscience scream at you from deep inside? 

Is there nothing that makes you want to stop? 

The darkest hour of the day is five O'Clock. 

How many died today, how many cried? 

You spell it out like its so cut and dry. 

You smile and plant your seed of rotten fruit. 

You're the Reaper's speaker in a 3-piece suit. 

Your canvass lies within us all, 

your pessimistic views have got me against the wall, 

you pain with red and black and even darker hues, 

Its the showcase of death, the five O'Clock news. 

Prime time is crime time, what purpose does it serve? 

"Reap what you sew", I hope you get what you deserve, 

Death-hungry vultures, with murder on the brain; 

All of this madness is making me insane. 

Your canvass lies within us all, 

your pessimistic views have got me against the wall, 

you pain with red and black and even darker hues, 

Its the showcase of death, the five O'Clock news. 

The five O'Clock news 

The five O'Clock news.
