"This World Needs A Father" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler....
Hold on, he's coming
Through the wheels of the star machine
Hold on, he's coming
Through the tears of your shit-stained dream
In an anthem for the world
Let him waltz you down the river
Let him feel like boy or girl
With his sci-fi lullaby
Let the light of the bomb shine from him tomorrow
Yes this world needs a father for the sorrow
So let's have one for the lovers
And one more for the friends
''cause drink to you is all I can do
As life slips down, down the drain
Hold on, he's coming
With the screen kissed spine of the past
Hold on, he coming
With the style of the wormwood star
Sing an anthem for the world
Sing a farewell for the river
If you feel like boy or girl
Sing a sci-fi lullaby
Let the light of the bomb
Shine from him tomorrow
Yes this world needs a father for the sorrow
Yes this world needs a father for the sorrow
So let's have one more for the sorrow
And one more for the friends
Yes drink to you is all I can do
As life slips down, down the drain...

    General Commentit´s a pity this song is not on Sci-fi lullabies! it exquisitely fit to the name of the album (not only for "sci-fi lullaby" in its lyrics but also for the atmosphere and meaning of this song) and to the photo of destroyed plane
