Track Name: A Friend In Need
I gave you so much money when you said you were in need
You came to me all puppy eyed and desperate
I watched you spend it chasing women, buying them champagne
While I’m fighting the breadline, can’t afford to eat

Where are all my friends when I need them
Where are all these people I hold dear?
Make me, don’t break me again

I gave you a bed when you had no place to stay
You came to me all puppy eyed and desperate
Now you have a house on the other side of town
I’m outside, it’s cold and you won’t let me in

Where are all my friends when I need them
Where are all these people I hold dear?
Make me, don’t break me again

I gave you everything I could
When I had nothing, my friend
And now that the table has turned
You give me
You give me
You give me nothing at all
Track Name: Media Machine
Yesterday’s headlines are blowing ‘round the news stands today
Well, what do they report, on a day with no bad news?
The fact that there is no bad news is
A news story in itself, well don’t you think?

This must be the worst day in the history of journalism
Nothing has occurred to contribute towards
The climate of fear and hatred and suspicion today

Today
Today
Today

And praise be
To the media machine
It’s important to remember
That man bites dog is news
But dog bites man is certainly not news

Don’t believe what you read in the paper use your head
On the day with no bad news
They’ll make their stories up

They’ll make their stories up
They’ll make their stories up
They’ll make their stories up

And praise be
To the media machine
It’s important to remember
That man bites dog is news
But dog bites man most certainly is not

Don’t believe what you see on your TV use your head
On the day with no bad news
They’ll make their stories up

So it’s a work of fiction in the newspapers today
Don’t believe what you read
There’s plenty of tall stories on your television set
Don’t believe what you see
