Lyrics
(I want to know - I want to know - I want to know)

Oh, when you wake up in the morning
in the middle of your breakfast - I guess you read the paper
but does it make you feel safer?
for just looking at the headlines - is enough to give you heartburn
but no matter how you feel it - you're always going to read it
according to the doom watch in the paper
we're going to shake hands with the maker - how do you cope with the news?
oh, won't you tell me - tell me - tell me - tell me - tell

I want to know - I want to know (right now) - I want to know
where you get your cool from - where you get your nerve
looking at the future - of the world

Oh when you settle in the evening - (give me the news) - in the middle of your dinner
(give me the news) you get it all in vision (give me the news) - from your colour television
(give me the news) with all the shock and the detail - as to how it all happened
with the chat and the profile - to try to make it less hostile
according to the doom watch on television - we're in a social collision
how do you cope with the news?
oh, won't you tell me - tell me - tell me - tell me - tell

I want to know - I want to know - I want to know
where you get your cool from - I want to know - I want to know (right now)

I want to know where you get your nerve
looking at the future - of the world

(when you settle in the evening - in the middle of your dinner
you will get it all in vision - on your colour television
with the shock and with the detail - as to how it all did happened
with the chat and with the profile - just to make it look less hostile)
(I want to know - I want to know)

I want to know - I want to know (right now) I want to know
where you get your cool from - I want to know - I want to know (right now) I want to know
where you get your cool from - where you get your nerve
looking at the future - of the world
