Mighty Mighty Bosstones — Desensitized lyrics

Woke up early
On the tenth anniversary
Good morning
Fit in clips of it
Between food prep shorts
Weather reports
Check the day's commute
And a look at sports
I remember how the wind
Was knocked from me
Before it became footage
A footnote in history
Recently I think I heard
It could have been avoided
It shouldn't have occurred
A fundamental obligation
To my parents and my kids
Life
Gave me a glimpse of it
Don't know who shot him
They never caught him
Let's get to the bottom
And blow off the lid
I'm trying to keep a balance
Like the plates on top of sticks
Chip away 'til it goes down
When it goes down apply the kicks
Recently I think I heard
It could have been avoided
It shouldn't have occurred
Sadly we're desensitized
To all the scandals and the cover ups
The conspiracies and lies
