One down two to go They multiply on impact for the show But we didn't switch off So freedom took a long sad bow for us Dropped and hung behind the curtain, Red as the operating rooms worsen Sense a wrong, doom scroll on, to less important ills Why aren't we running for the hills? Or hunting for the kill Dance Like You're On Fire Oh you might as well Your Last Rites sung by choir You can't control this anyway Dance Like You're On Fire Oh go crazy on yourself It's the Last night of an empire In the light of No truths As sure as sea levels are rising In the spin of breaking news You dropped your confidence in happiness And your innocence This data indignity, that hoodwinked for a great awakening Meanwhile everything you ever cared about Got hot swapped out for someone else's twisted dream We should be running for the hills No one's got the will anymore I haven't got the will Click Buy Ugh Dance Like You're On Fire Oh go crazy on yourself Your Last Rites sung by choir You can't control this anyway Dance like you're not a liar Oh you might as well It's the Last night of an empire So it's come to this We're in biz Systemic hysterics Normalising disbelief Temper temper Hate thy neighbour That is unless you agree Slam, Pow, Bam, Whack KaBoom, KaPow, Bam, Crack what the Just go and switch another episode on What the? Dance Like You're On Fire Oh you might as well Your Last Rites sung by choir You can't control this anyway Dance Like You're On Fire Oh go crazy on yourself It's the Last night of an empire Just go and switch another episode on Turn the world off while you twiddle your thumbs A population toughs it out until dawn Don't miss your putting buddies down on the lawn Just go and switch another episode on Turn the world off while you twiddle your thumbs A population toughs it out until dawn Don't let the serious stuff distract you from Your madness, your illness, somebody get this guy a doctor a doctor, doctor doctor doctor!! We should be running for the hills, ah Or hunting for the kill, ah Why aren't we running for the hills Or Hunting for the kill
