The sharks start to circle when they smell blood in the water
The viewers tune in to watch the unfortunate suffer
Bombarded with a never ending scourge of destruction
Seduced my the media's macabre illustration
We have front row seats for the televised slaughter
Anxiously feeding on what the news has to offer
Satisfying our morbid curiosity for human tragedy
Consumed by the media feeding frenzy
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
Blood attracts the media to the feeding frenzy
We've become a nation of ghoulish blood-lusting addicts
Bewitched by the drama of Hollywood-style theatrics
The right lighting and music create the dire sense of urgency
Where every single segment is an absolute emergency
We've become numb to the violence through sheer repetition
It takes more and more gore to secure our attention
More gruesome descriptions, more graphic desecratings
By all of the networks competing for ratings
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
Blood attracts the media to the feeding frenzy
School shooting- the media feeds
Child abduction- the media feeds
Gang slaying- the media feeds
Terrorist bombing- the media feeds
We're so easily enticed by the corporate blood-soaked approach
We resent what we see but we can't help to watch
So what are the long-term effects on our society?
What is the result of all this spoon-fed anxiety?
Instilled fear, hysteria and panic attacks
A nation's emotional state on the verge of collapse
Too terrified to venture out in the world our tv depicts
So just lock your door and stay tuned to get your next fix
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
If it bleeds it leads-and the media feeds
Blood attracts the media to the feeding frenzy
