You must be, a radio station
And who are we, we must be
The number one songs, spinning all day long

And over again
And we know when
When we call in
And nothings free
Sounds to me like
State run radio

We interrupt this broadcast
To bring you this special message about the forecast
The futures cloudy and it's raining on the poor class
The roads to peace are closed, heavy traffic's on the war paths
Love is balling on a budget
The military's says its going to need more cash
To keep fighting for your gas
Keep us in our hoods and hope we never explore pass
Stay inside of your half, believe the lies you learn in your class
That there's no treasure in your trash and the ceiling has the same feeling
That the floor has, and that's where you should stay
This is what they play

And over again
And we know when
When we call in
And nothings free
Sounds to me like
State run radio 

You're now tuned into the weakest
Frequency of fear, keep you locked right here
And hope you never leave this, never be a leader
Think inside the box, and follow all procedures
Never ever believe that, you will never need this
Hit up all your friends and tell them to repeat this
Hi, your on the air, now what you want to hear?
Well we ain't got the truth, but how about a remix
Different is never good, good is only what we pick
You ain't got a hit, unless it sounds like these did
Not too smart you will be a superstar
And if you dumb or something maybe you could be number one

And over again
And we know when
When we call in
And nothings free
Sounds to me like
State run radio 

So beware what's on the airwaves
And be more aware of what's not getting airplay
Independent spirit, you can barely hear what they're saying
Truth ain't getting on like shampoo on an airplane
Propaganda's everywhere, constantly on replay
All the hits, all the time, back-to-back on relay
We're really where it lives
Make them hear the records we play
Build your own station, become your own DJ's

You must be, a radio station
And who are we, we must be
A number one song, spinning all day long
And you put me on daily rotation
You're on the air, we know you're scared
But we don't care, we'll play this here

Over again
And we know when
When we call in
And nothings free
Sounds to me like
State run radio
