"Killing with Kindness" as written by Curt Smith, Roland Orzabal and Charlton Clay Pettus....
Don't cry for me my baby
Don't say a word
Everyone knows you're a dangerous bird

Fly like a golden eagle
Sleek like the snow
Ticking your time bomb where ever you go

You're sinking a line without a trace
With elegant crimes against the state

Killing with kindness yeah
Making the most of the mess oh yeah
You're mother and childless yeah, yeah
Just kill them with kindness yeah, yeah

Bye cruel politician
Now you've been caught
Came from behind
It's a dangerous spot

Green are the seeds of envy
Watch how they grow
Everyone knows there's a fire down below

You're sinking a line without a trace
With elegant crimes against the state

Killing with kindness yeah
Making the most of the mess oh yeah
You're mother and childless yeah, yeah
Just kill them with kindness yeah, yeah

Killing with kindness
Raising the ghost from the flesh oh yeah
Don't blind them with science yeah, yeah
Just kill them with kindness yeah, yeah

Turn your back
And you might understand
Become your destiny
And you'll be a lucky man
Don't let anything stand in your way

    This is probably my favorite TFF song of them all. I could not love it more.
