lyrics

It’s a stranger reality then I can conceive
When alternate facts start to be believed
Fake news is the opiate of the asses

A rumor that starts on an internet site
Is viewed by millions at the speed of light
Fake news is the opiate of the asses

Ignorance is the new knowledge
Derision is the new blood sport
First figure out your worldview
fill in fake facts that support

It’s so addicting to be correct
Just find the right news outlets that you can check
Fake news is the opiate of the asses

Don’t get caught with your pants down
Get your facts and figures from a phony circus clown
Fake news is the opiate of the asses

Ignorance is the new knowledge
Derision is the new blood sport
Dial in your personal prejudice
Then fill in fake facts that support
