When the ties come off.
Hold on tight and take us to sin city,
Take me to where the moon is real and the colours are darker.
Take us to a place where through pain they find love,
Take us anywhere, wherever you want.
To a waking dream where we can smile in constant lust,
Away from this machine where in it they see life and I see rust.
And explain to me as we drink and make love,
Why you desire what you desire,
And I’ll tell you why I love what I love.
Explain to me as we drink and make love,
Why am I a terrible friend and a great liar,
And I’ll tell you why we betray whom we love.
I want to climb the night and find you at the top,
I want to climb the night and see you dancing to the words coming from my heart.
I want to see your feet dancing in belief to every sound I hum,
I want to see the revolution in your eyes as we fuck.
And now take me and hang me from the rooftops,
And let the sun rise with the fading sound of raindrops, and the background noise of my favourite choir.
Wave me and bring the world to a halt,
Wave me to the world in hope of an international ceasefire.
Let my death bring peace and love,
Let my death stir emotions and inspire.
And even though they want the likes of us gone,
We will never surrender, We will never stop.
Not whilst there are words that lead to fire.
