You could say I'd lost my belief in our politicians
They all seemed like game show hosts to me"

Casino Nation (Jackson Browne)

 

"In the fabled crucible of the free world
Camera crews search for clues amid the detritus
And entertainment shapes the land
The way the hammer shapes the hand

All those not on TV only have themselves to blame
And don't quite seem to understand
The way the hammer shapes the hand"

And I watch it from the hole I call home
And all them stories are dancin’ to the radio

And I got the whole world callin’ me up
