09. Stop The World

Celebrate This Heartbeat
by Randy Stonehill



 

Well it's okay to murder babies
But we really ought to save the whales
We're putting criminals in office
Cause it's way too crowded in the jails
T.V. is our teacher now
The schools are overrun by thugs
And children skip their innocence
and graduate to sex and drugs
Right is wrong and wrong is right
White is black and black is white
I think I just lost my appetite
Stop the world I want to get off

Stop the world
I want to get off
This is too weird for me
Stop the world
I want to get off
I get the definite impression
That this isn't how it's meant to be
No, no

Fear is taking over
Anxiety is on the rise
Well you can feel it in the air
You can see it in your neighbor's eyes
The working man is desperate
He can't support his family
And we could pull the nation
Out of debt for what
We spend on locks and keys
And even suburbia is under attack
They're all buying handguns
Trying to fight back
There's a vigilante picnic
In the cul-de-sac
Stop the world I want to get off

Stop the world
I want to get off
This is too weird for me
Stop the world
I want to get off
I've just got to find a planet
Where they're interested in sanity
Hey yeah

I wish I had some spaceman gear
I swear I'd fly away from here
I cry to God this fervent prayer
"Oh, please, just take me anywhere
Don't leave me here"

We take our loftiest intentions
And engrave them all neatly in stone
And once they're safely up there
We'd prefer that they just leave us alone
Cause it's the law of the jungle
With distinctly carnivorous vibes
Yeah, we may dress up in tuxedos
But we function like Germanic tribes
It's the age old sin in a modern day
From the club of Cain to the laser ray
But now we can blow everybody away
Stop the world I want to get off

Stop the world
I want to get off
This is too weird, a little too weird
Stop the world
I want to get off
I've just got to find a planet
Well I've just got to find a planet
Got to find a planet where
They're interested in sanity

yeah, yeah
Somebody stop the world
Ooh yeah
Somebody stop the world
