lyrics

FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE OLD WORLD AGAIN

it’s easy to say
that you have no regrets
it's easy to play the part of the old laureate
now I’m strolling around the old grounds

i’ve worn the right boots
and i’ve painted my claws
at times i have tried to fit in
with that circle of whores
as they circled around the old town

i’m falling in love with the old world again
i’m due for another birth
but i’m not ready yet
i'm walking away to the old sea again
i‘m standing outside the door
of your old address

so don’t you try to stop me when i’m falling
for the old world once again
i can see when i am not wanted
i’m falling in love with the old world again
with the old world again

i’ve been here before
and i’ve shaken that hand
i’m always intensely aware of the foul liver stench of my fellow man
i can see that I’m starting to offend

so i’ll stay overnight
in the etruscan room
i’ll stare at those stone eggs for hours
till the high school bus tours resume
then I’ll slip out a back exit door

i’m falling in love with the old world again
i’m due for another birth
but i’m not ready yet
i'm walking away to the old sea again
i‘m standing outside the door
of our old address

so don’t you try to stop me when i’m falling
for the old world once again
i can see when i am not wanted
i’m falling in love with the old world again
with the old world again
