This song is by Down By Law and appears on the album Last of the Sharpshooters (1997).

Turn on your TV now my son
In north Hollywood I see the guns are blazing
Well you can't believe it
But you'd best believe it boy
This is your u.s.a. today
Turn up the radio now my son
A car got jacked in compton, news at 11
Just another day in the modern world
But I still love this land, o.k.?
Well you can't believe it
But you'd best believe it boy
This is your u.s.a. today
Take a look and you might see too much reality
You'll cut your mind along the way
On the pieces of a broken of a broken world today
See the pretty news announcer, son?
She looks so good with stories of decay and destruction
Smiling like it was all a video game
And every anchor looks the same
Well you can't believe it
But you'd best believe it
This is your u.s.a. today
Look too hard then you will see too much reality
You'll cut your mind along the way
On the pieces of a broken world today
See the wars so far from here
Brought into my room so crystal clear
Words and images like these have got me on my knees
Turn up your TV now my son
Cause there's nowhere left to hide, nowhere left to run
Well you can't believe it
But you'd best believe it
This is the u.s.a. today
