Home from work turn on the tube
Nothin' to do so watch the news
Union workers sacked - Paid too much
Too united for their boss
Government says its all fair
News man beams it across the air
Rich man's pulling the media's strings
Telling the people what to think

Media's watching over you
Think like us or you'll be uncool
Rich man doesn't want to lose his place
Tell you that you're shit and kick it in your face
Tell you that you're shit and kick it in your face

The sad people listen to the radio
Tune it in - The Zemmanic show
Don't vote Labor they're on your side
Liberals keep the money by my side
I know more than you listen to me
And every other right wing on 2UE
We'll keep our money if you think like us
While your pockets are filled with dust

Media's watching over you
Think like us or you'll be uncool
Rich man doesn't want to lose his place
Tell you that you're shit and kick it in your face
Tell you that you're shit and kick it in your face

Talkin' with people - what's right what's wrong
How good things are in Hong Kong
News paper said we all bludge
Paid too much, too long for lunch
Gotta work hader if we want to compete
We're spinning shit for you all to eat

Media's watching over you
Think like us or you'll be uncool
Rich man doesn't want to lose his place
Tell you that you're shit and kick it in your face
Tell you that you're shit and kick it in your face

"I meant this song to be like Magnificent 7 (thank god for The Clash) but when we played it, it ended up sounding more like a DK mutation. I wanted this song to be a wake up call to everyone who takes what they see/read/hear on the TV/Newspaper/Radio for granted." - Nate.
