Lyrics

Now that the world is run by fossil fools,

And corporations run the public schools,

Our infotainment puts it all in place,

And tells us how to fill up empty space

  It's bread & circuses, it's front page news,

  It's bread & circuses, they gotta keep us amused

 

These days the medium is the massage,

They're busy bowing to their own applause,

No need to question their integrity,

All the important stuff is on page three

  It's bread & circuses, it's front page news,

  It's bread & circuses, they gotta keep us confused,

   

    Now every cloud has a sulphur lining, still the sun is shining its dazzling rays,

    Face the corner in your dunce hat, they'll only tell you once that

    This is the way, it's gonna stay, and you'll obey, all that they say.

 

Now Gretzky's bigger than Jesus Christ,

In our complacent little paradise,

And all the voices that we trust the most,

Just want to keep the advertisers close.

  It's bread & circuses, it's front page news,

  It's bread & circuses, they gotta keep up the ruse.
