A Little Something For The Political Season

So called reality
Right there on my TV
If that's how life's supposed to be
Well, somebody's lying

The camera's on
And we can tell
To keep your fame
You have to yell

'Cause tensions build
And products sell
And we're all buyin
I hope we're smarter than this

Everybody take a breath
Why are all your faces red
We're missing all the words you said
You don't have to yell

Draw your lines and choose your side
Cause many things are worth the fight
But louder doesn't make you right
You don't have to yell
Oh, you don't have to ye–ll, ye—ll, ye–ll
You don't have to yell

I tuned in to hear the news
I don't want your point of view
If thats the best that you can do
Then somethings missing

And experts on whatever side
You plug your ears, you scream your lines
You claim to have an open mind,
But nobody's listenin'

And don't you think we're smarter than this?

Everybody take a breath
Why are all your faces red
We're missing all the words you've said
You don't have to yell

Draw your lines and choose your side
Cause many things are worth the fight
But louder doesn't make you right
You don't have to yell
Oh, you don't have to ye–ll, ye—ll, ye–ll
You don't have to yell

Everybody take a breath
Why are all your faces red
We're missing all the words you said
You don't have to yell

If everyone would take a step
Back away and count to ten
Clear your mind and start again
We won't have to yell

Draw your lines
And Choose your side
Cause many things are worth the fight
But louder doesn't make you right
You don't have to yell
Oh, you don't have to ye–ll, ye—ll, ye–ll
You don't have to yell
You don't have to ye–ll, ye—ll, ye–ll
You don't have to yell

"You Don't Have To Yell" by Chris Rice on his upcoming album What A Heart Is Beating For
