I read the news today: Oh boy.... CLICK-BAIT

CLICK-BAIT 1

You think you are clever
You think you are wise
But you are just click-bait
Stuffed full of lies

If I click on your page
You link and you link
To pages so shallow
Twenty-first Century stink

Your headline is great
Your subheading intriguing
But, from then on
You're just not worth reading


Your image is swell
Your font is just right
But the words that you spill
Well...just...well...


You're an empty book
With pages so blank
No chapters, no index
Just damp, dark and dank


CLICKBAIT...

CLICK-BAIT 2 (lyrics)

If you run to the lights
If you run to the noise
If you run to the power

You run the wrong way
You run the wrong way


If you listen to shouting
Look at the pouting
The bling and the Ritz


You run the wrong way
You run the wrong way


If you hear all the lies
If you believe all the lies
If you're a gullible fool


You run the wrong way
You run the wrong way


If you run from the lights
Run away from the noise
Run away from the power


You run the right way
You run the right way


If you listen to quiet
If you say as you like it
If you are as you are

You run the right way
You run the right way


If you don't believe lies
If you look with your eyes

If you're a sensible soul

You run the right way
You run the right way


You run the right way
You run the right way


Don't run the wrong way

CLICK-BAIT...
