Lyrics

Valium makes the world go round
Single mothers and their kiddies
Three-time fathers impregnate again
And politicians laugh at what they see
What they see...

Falling down, feeling low, it's the only thing I know
Lost my soul but alone it's the one thing I don't owe
I can see, cannot breathe, it's the only thing I need
I must breathe
Losing hope in this place, all the world must go to waste
Stay away, stay away, I can't bear to see your face
Crumbling, caving in, all the world is falling in
Falling in

Serial killers as game show hosts
Grin as you tap a new vein
Drink-drivers acquitted without trial
Then celebrate with some champagne
Celebrate...

Falling down, feeling low, it's the only thing I know
Lost my soul but alone it's the one thing I don't owe
I can see, cannot breathe, it's the only thing I need
I must breathe
Losing hope in this place, all the world must go to waste
Stay away, stay away, I can't bear to see your face
Crumbling, caving in, all the world is falling in
Falling in

Media sensitivity?
Mass shootings only cause us a tingle
Rich killers get the beauty queens
Leaving dreams for the single
Broken dreams...

Falling down, feeling low, it's the only thing I know
Lost my soul but alone it's the one thing I don't owe
I can see, cannot breathe, it's the only thing I need
I must breathe
Losing hope in this place, all the world must go to waste
Stay away, stay away, I can't bear to see your face
Crumbling, caving in, all the world is falling in
Falling in
