lyrics

Who’s great idea was this?
Some of us can’t even kiss anymore
Some of us can’t go outside
Some of us can’t even look at the moon

Why must we beg on the streets?
Some of us beg on the big city streets
Some of us can’t go to work anymore
How can you work when there’s love in the air?

This is no time for art
This is a time for community work
How can you work when there’s nothing to do but pretend that you’re flying like birds?

To the last place on earth
Why don’t we fall in love?
It’s the last place on earth for us

We can’t go on like this
Must our teenagers grow to be psychiatrists?
Some of us feel that we shouldn’t exist ‘coz there putting our memories on big epic screens

So sleep through the next civil war
Sleep in the beds in the furniture stores
Some of us don’t follow sports anymore
Some of us still go to school without food

This is no time for art
This is a time for community work
How can you work when there’s nothing to do but pretend that you’re flying like birds?

To the last place on earth
What a handsome idea
With a chance of romance

To the last place on earth
Why don’t we fall in love?
It’s the last place on earth for us
