Make The World Go Away

Make The World Go Away

Out on my own,
I’m taking photographs,
No-one will see,
And I won’t remember them
Many years from now,
They’ll confuse historians,
Cos they’ve got no names,
Cos they’ve got no provenance

Well you can paint out the sky
You can turn night into day
You can sleep as long as you like
But you can’t make the world go away
No you can’t make the world go away

You look diseased
And you’re barely 21
Ten years from now
You’ll be dead to everything
I can see it all
Like I’ve seen it all before
One day you’ll wake up
And you won’t know who you are

And everything that you do
Every word that you say
You try as hard as you can
But you can’t make the world go away
No you can’t make the world go away

This won’t take long
I can tell you’re getting bored
Just a couple of ticks
We’ll be through with this chore
