I just want to watch the paradise
I just want to see that clear, clear light
Don't want to be a member of a species that's deceasing
Keep on making those promises that they aren't keeping

I can't go on like this
I can't go on like this

Oh, I was a talking to the people next door
They said don't want to die in a nuclear war
Now we went walking down the old north road
We got a common cause we got a heavy, heavy load

Because we can't go on no no living like this
We can't go on

Watching pictures of the world
Watching pictures as they pass me by
Don't stop at that light, don't go out at night
Watching pictures of the world
Watching pictures as they pass me by
My artificial heart, expensive spare parts

I've been a sailor on the sea, I've been a flier in the air
I've seen a whole lot of bleeding hearts out there
They don't talk so much I tell you they still care
Yes they do, yes they do

They can't go on living like this they can't go on
They can't go on

They're watching pictures of the world
They're watching pictures as they pass me by
Don't sit around in silence you don't need a license
Watching pictures of the world
Watching pictures as they pass me by
It's moving in a hurry there's no need to worry

We're really going to change it the critical mass approaches
I can almost hear it
