  • All the saints and sinners
    They pay handsomely
    MSCAE they make the weapons
    And they run the prisons
    And they sell the justice 'cause
    'Cause being guilty is just good business
    And when you're standing on the borderline
    Ain't no one here going to stop it now

    Murrow's turnin' over in (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Murrow's turnin' over in (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Ed Murrow had a child (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    The damn thing went wild (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Murrow's turnin' over in (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Murrow's turnin' over in (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Ed Murrow had a child (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    The damn thing went wild (Murrow turning over in his grave)

    Half-closed eyes and unconscious death
    Do you feel the ooze as your brain drains out
    From the pneumatic drills and sharpened knives?
    Blood in the sky, are you dead or alive?
    All the restless people and the bitter green
    Well, it fakes the gold, make the spirit mean

    Murrow's turnin' over (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Murrow's turnin' over (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Ed Murrow had a child (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    The damn thing went wild (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Murrow's turnin' over (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Murrow's turnin' over (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    Ed Murrow had a child (Murrow turning over in his grave)
    The damn thing went wild (Murrow turning over in his grave) Writer/s: Lindsey Buckingham

  • Christine from Worcester, MaThats because many of the songs on SYW were intended for Lindseys solo album that never came out called Gift of Screws.
    I think Stevie needs to get over it! lol
    Ive read that she said that she liked Tusk...it sucks when people do that stuff.

    I wondered who ed murrow was LOL
  • Sara Mackenzie from Middle Of Nowhere, Flstrange song...nice christine mcvie sang back vocals on it.
  • Chris from Leeds, EnglandStevie Nicks saw the song as just another Tusk sounding song and felt that Lindsey was trying to recreate Tusk. She refused to sing backing vocals on the song so Lindsey asked Christine McVie who agreed. Stevie wanted it to be one of the last on tracks the album but John and Mick disagreed and her comments were ignored.
  • Chris from Downers Grove, IlChristine McVie, who left the band before the making of Say You Will, plays the keyboards and does backup vocals for this song. She also does vocals on 'Steal Your Heart Away' and 'Bleed To Love Her.'
