The Lyrics

I feel like I'm stealing inspiration from Callmelennie's subject matter, repeating myself again with recurring subject matter, or following up on XINN. What a week in news. Going to try for another song to post since this OS is short and simple.
(Instrumental Intro)

(Verse 1)
This one goes out to the CNN
This one goes out to the shows I do not like
A simple lie, the reason for first strike
This one goes out to the CNN

(Chorus 1)
FIRE!
FIRE!

(Verse 2)
This one goes out to the CNN
This one goes out to the ones locked in handcuffs
The MN cops, have really had enough+
This one goes out to the CNN (N)

(Chorus 2)
FIRE! (They’re burnin’ down your HQ, now)
FIRE! (They’re burnin’ down your HQ)

(Solo)

(Verse 3)
This one goes out to the CNN (N)
This one goes out to the press who can’t, report
The rioters, we’ll never see in court
This one goes out to the CNN (N)

(Chorus 2 x2)
+ = I am not going to repeat the verses like the OS. Going to try for another submission, a catalyst of sorts.

As an R.E.M. fan who is rather political, I love this song!
