About this creation

Welcome to the holy city, a silver screen
Built with the lens and a low self-esteem
A teenager’s plea for meaning and means
We’re selling the news.
See, opinions are easier to swallow than facts
The grays instead of the whites and the blacks
If you shoot it too straight it won’t come back
We’re selling the news.

See, money speaks volumes louder than words
And virtues with wings, maybe not quite at first
But salaries are paid by the ads, not the verbs
We’re selling the news.
See, all men are equal, all is for sale
A powerful dog has been chasing his tail
The lowest common denominator prevails
We’re selling the news.

America listens, the story is told
With an eye on the truth, as the story unfolds
But the ratings determine if the story was sold
Were selling the news.
Begging the question, mongering fears
Stroking the eyes and tickling ears
The truth is just seldom as it appears
We’re selling the news.

Substance, oh substance! Where have you been?
You've been replaced by the masters of spin
Who make good looking books and write history in
Were selling the news.
The lines start to blur, I get so confused!
I get shiny new models mixed up with the blues!
I get binary code mixed up with abuse!
The facts are simply one option to choose!
When nothing is sacred, there's nothing to lose
When nothing is sacred, all is consumed
We’re still on the air, it must be the truth

We’re selling the news…

-Selling the News, Switchfoot

Awesome! The optical illusion of the TV is masterful and I love the figs and the glasses on the desk. Never would have thought of that! Cool idea. 5/5!~Christopher
