about

So much arrogance in the idea that one's actions incur specific and punitive reactions from God that more often than not splash horrifically on the neighbours just to teach us a lesson.

lyrics

The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
And it’s all because of me
What a wonderful night to be free

Going on a picnic, not a cloud in the sky
Running through the green grass, splashing
Where did that puddle come from?
Where did the sun go?
Where did the sun go?
Must have been that spider that I killed before we came

When did I get to be powerful?
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
And it’s all because of me

What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free

What kind of power lets a man damn another with his tongue?
The painted lady, singing
Where did my husband go to?
Where did the sun go?
Where did the sun go?
I wonder why his laughter is still ringing in my ears

When did I get to be powerful?
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
And it’s all because of me

When did I get to be powerful?
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
The world is spinning out of control
And it’s all because of me

I lead a good life and I pray for my brother’s health now
What if I slip down?
Will you rape that girl just to punish me?
I’d rather live in the darkness
If I have to pay for the light
With my own blood as the sacrifice

What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free

What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be free
What a wonderful night to be me
