Treasure Island

Genevieve Pilat

(02/1991 / New Jersey, USA)

Headline


The buzz and babbles of the news headline
Ringing in the everyman’s ear
Stories never different, always the same
To what the everyday people will hear.

The latest gossip of the glamour life
The scandals of what have been done and said
Like who won the award, who broke the law
And who is sharing their own bed.

The politics of our government
From local state to D.C.
The elections, the debates and the laws that are passed
All claiming a better future for you and me.

The great disasters of world
Whether caused by nature or man
And there hand in hand we all stand tall
Believing in our faith and our strength as much as we can.

A little child gone missing by kidnap
And police giving up after searching for a year
Broken hearted parents with a child missing or dead
The usual story most would avoid and not want to hear.

The buzz and babbles of the news headline
Ringing in the everyman’s ear
Stories never different, always the same
To what the everyday people will hear.
