The World is on Fire

 

The World

The World is on Fire  

If you think it can't get dumber 

And you think it can't get meaner then 

The World 

The World 

The World is on fire 

You have to kill 

to kill 

to kill your desire 

It's only there because you say it 

It's only there because you do it 

It's only there because you buy it you buy it you buy it 

Wake up 

Fuck off 

You little Killer Machines 

Get up 

Fuck off 

You little Killer Machines 

The World 

The World 

The World is on Fire 

 

If you think it can't get dumber 

And you think she can't get cleaner then 

The World 

The World 

The World is on fire 

I got a Hole in my Heart 

And you shot it through 

I got a hole in my heart 

A MANHOLE! 

Slow Fade 

Fuck Boy 

Something is wrong but you play along 

Forever 

And a day 

Get out of my mind get out of my side 

Meanwhile the Missiles from the West cross the Missiles from the East

Plastic in your dreams who's the beast - who's the beast??  

The World 

The World 

The World is on Fire 

The neater cleaner faster meaner 

dumber slumber fumble jumble 

World

The World is on Fire 

You have got a million products and it's still not enough 

You yourself became a product of the Google Mafia 

Screens at Work 

Screens at Home 

Screens screens screens screens 

SCREAM 

Brave New World 

IVF 

Don't forget to shag 

Don't forget to fuck 

The World

The World is on Fire  

If you think it can't get dumber 

And you think it can't get meaner 

And the Wheels are turning faster 

And you're happy happy happy happy happy happy happy

Love Bomb

 

Sunday Morning and I'm lying alone in my bed 

Another day without love - full of love 

In the afternoon I'm meeting up with my beautiful old friend 

When we laugh - it's just like love love love 

In the evening it is when I usually call my Mum and Dad 

50 years without a break that must be love 

Monday Morning on the tube someone offers me a seat 

You can say, this is also nearly love 

In the evening singing lesson - the highlight of the week 

Where I try and learn to sing like Courtney Love Love Love 

When I come home my kitty cat greets me at the door 

The fluffy thing - full of hair and also Love 

It's not that I don't have a boyfriend 

Don't you think that I have not 

He's 21, Japanese and has 4 wheels 

At work on Tuesday boys talk cars 

Girls are talking love 

Another day full of love - I prefer cars 

My friend asked me to be her bridesmaid - HIP HIP HURRAY 

I get a hideous dress that I will never ever wear again 

Stag do - hen do - voodoo 

And gallons of free booze 

I look at the groom and think of making love 

There was a time when I thought 

what I had was really love 

It drove me crazy 

I cracked up - too much love 

Now every day without love is like heaven 

Every day without love is just a ball.

H

 

The name started with H 

And though not illegal 

The effect 

Was just the same 

It was summer from 

early May to September 

And I 

Was on top of the world 

I lured you in 

I won you over 

With a beach party in the 

Long jump pit of my school (just like by the sea) 

Velvet skin 

Worth a sin 

You had good reasons 

For everything 

And your dad and your dad 

He called me your pussy cat 

It was summer - still summer 

All the time 

We stayed up all night with your 

Enduro XT (the one that got stolen later on) 

Until the birds 

Started to sing 

Then I called at your door 

There was another woman 

A woman 

Whose name started with M 

She was nice 

She was blond 

And she said that 

You weren't in 

Then I left town 

And you wouldn't come 

You stayed with the girl 

Whose name started with M 

Home for Christmas 

Everything had changed 

You now saw a girl 

Whose name started with J 

Now you live on the dole 

In the very same place (back at your parent's house) 

Where your dad 

Had called me your pussy cat 

I heard you left all your girls 

And even your daughter 

But that's just a rumour 

I couldn't say 

As for me 

I met some more boys 

Their names started with F and with C 

And with B and with G and with D 

They were smart they were kind 

They were rich they were cute 

But no one ever 

Oh no one ever had 

Skin like velvet like you 

I thought everyone 

Had all the same feelings 

The very same feelings 

Just like me 

But very much later 

My friend said it's unusual 

You went all deep girl 

Back in the days

Tear the Heart apart

 

They say that love is stronger than words 

But it's not 

They say that love is sweet without words 

But it's not 

Love is worth nothing when it's not said 

It's a turd of dog shit 

And it tears the heart apart 

They say that love is stronger than fear 

But it's not 

They say they leave me because they fear 

Love gets to strong 

But there is love there between us 

It's not mine it's not yours its ours 

You cannot just kick it away with your fear 

They say that love is stronger than hate 

But it's not 

They say that love is forgiveness 

But it is not 

If you only knew the hate you create 

By just saying nothing 

Just doing nothing 

It tears the heart apart 

Oh and then there's hope 

Oh yes - another lie 

Sitting and waiting and hoping things will change 

Another excuse for doing nothing 

Hope - ha - it's passive and powerless 

But then you break on through to the other side 

And you realise when you come out 

You don't feel the need to find mister right anymore 

People will love you and hate you and fear you 

Some might find hope as they see who you are 

Es gibt nichts Gutes ausser man tut es 

Nothing goes wrong when your brave and you show 

who you really are 

Love is not longing and waiting 

Love is not dreaming of someone 

Love's only there because you say it out loud 

Otherwise love means shit means nothing 

You have to be brave to really love someone 

Start with yourself 

Just in case 

Noone else does

The Morning after

 

Sunlight stings through the morning haze 

Thaw on trees like slimy sleaze 

Moss like velvet against my cheek 

Time stands still - soft is the air 

Primal noises are burning my brain 

Millions of colours behind my closed eye lids 

Be careful not to be too beautiful 

You left a hole in my heart 

My bleeding heart 

Yes means no means 

Yes means no means 

Yes means no means 

Yes mean no 

Flies on my thighs 

My hands grab the earth - cool black and moist 

My teary eyes - my lips are dry 

I lift my head - I open my wings 

My mighty wings - I open my heart 

My mighty heart - I give in 

The light of the beauty - Lavender and Sin 

And the world in my head 

is spinning around 

When I exhale 

it's becoming so small 

Yes means no means 

Yes means no means 

Yes means no means 

Yes mean no 

Red sun - blood sky 

And the wolves are starting to cry 

Yes means no means 

Yes means no means 

Yes means no means 

Yes mean no
