Song: Selling the News
Artist: Switchfoot
Album: Vice Verses
==================================================================================================

Verse 1:
                        B5
Welcome to the holy city a silver screen
                   A#5
Built with the lens and a low self esteem
     G5
A teenager's plea for meaning and means
      F#5
We're selling the news

Verse 2:
     B5
See opinions are easier to swallow than facts
    A#5
The grays instead of the whites and the blacks
       G5
If you shoot it too straight they wont come back
      F#5             D5 C5
We're selling the news

Verse 3:
    B5
See money speaks volumes louder than words
    A#5
And virtues with wings maybe not quite at first 
          G5
But their salaries are paying for the ad not the verbs
      F#5
We're selling the news

Verse 4:
     B5
See all men are equal all is for sale
  A#5
A powerful dog has been chasing his tail
    G5
The lowest common denominator prevails
      F#5
We're selling the news

Chorus:
  Bm
I want to believe you
                       F#m/A
I want to believe but everything is in between
      G
The fact is fiction
      F#
The fact is fiction
  Bm
I want to believe you 
                       F#m/A
I want to believe but everything is in between
      G
The fact is fiction
   Ø (F#)
Suspicion is a new religion

Interlude: B5 A#5 G5 F#5

Verse 5:
 B5
America listens the story is told
        A#5
With an eye on truth the story unfolds
        G5
But the ratings determine the story was sold
      F#5
We're selling the news

Verse 6:
      B5
Begging the question mongering fears
                 A#5
Stroking the eyes and tickling ears
                 G5
The truth's just seldom just as it appears
      F#5
We're selling the news

Chorus

Bridge:
      Bm
I can see your talking heads
       G           F#
On the television set
       Bm
On the Internet they said
               G
That fact is fiction
   F#
Suspicion is a new religion

Interlude

Verse 7:
   B5
Substance oh substance where have you been
       A#5
You've been replaced by the masters of spin
         G5
Who make good looking books and write history in
      F#5
We're selling the news

Verse 8:
          B5
The lines start to blur I get so confused
      A#5
I get shiny new models mixed up with the blues
      G5
I get binary code mixed up with abuse
    F#5
The facts are simply one option to choose

Verse 9:
     B5
When nothing is sacred there's nothing to lose
     A#5
When nothing is sacred all is consumed
      G5
We're still on the air it must be the truth
      F#5
We're selling the news

Chorus (final):
  Bm
I want to believe you
                       F#m/A
I want to believe but everything is in between
      G
The fact is fiction
      F#
The fact is fiction
  Bm
I want to believe you
                       F#m/A
I want to believe but everything is in between
      G
The fact is fiction
      F#
The fact is fiction
  Bm
I want to believe you 
                       F#m/A
I want to believe but everything I see is greed
      G
The fact is fiction

Suspicion is a new religion

Verse 1:
D
 Been fighting things that I can't see in
D
 Like voices coming from the inside of me and
G
 Like doing things I find hard to believe in
G
 Am I myself or am I dreaming?

Prechorus 1:
Bm
  I've been awake for an hour or so
  G
Checking for a pulse but I just don't know
Bm
  Am I a man when I feel like a ghost?
       G
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

Chorus:
D
No I'm not alright
A
I know that I'm not right
Bm
  A steering wheel don't mean you can drive
G
 A warm body don't mean I'm alive
D
No I'm not alright
A
I know that I'm not right
Bm
Feels like I travel but I never arrive
G
 I want to thrive not just survive

Interlude: D

Verse 2:
D
 I come alive when I hear you singing
D
 But lately I haven't been hearing a thing and
G
 I get the feeling that I'm in between
G
 A machine and a man who only looks like me

Prechorus 2:
Bm
  I try and hide it and not let it show
        G
But deep down inside me I just don't know
Bm
  Am I a man when I feel like a hoax?
       G
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

Chorus

Bridge:
Em              Bm                  A
  I'm always close but I'm never enough
Em              Bm                      A
  I'm always in line but I'm never in love
G           D                     A
 I get so down but I won't give up
G               D                     A
 I get slowed down but I won't give up

Verse 1:
 C#5                                       C#sus4
Another couple kids with their heads on top

Just another stranger just another plot
 B5                                           Bsus4
Another track home where the city streets stop
C#5                                    C#sus4
Just another kid with another bored cop

Verse 2:

Just another rust and dust facade
C#5                                      C#sus4
Just another key stuck broken in the lock

Just because you're running doesn't mean that you're scared
C#5                                        C#sus4
Just because it's law doesn't mean it is fair

Here we go again give it one more try

Don't believe the system's on your side
C#5                                  C#sus4
Just another lover turned enemy fight
C#5                                C#sus4
Just another blood and nicotine sky

Oh come on!
