I'll strive to make
A world free of torment
A world free of rapture
To make Adam and Eve
Proud of what is done here
Proud of a thousand men
Proud of the things we achieved
Proud that the world is dead

The world ends with not a bang
But with a whimper
'Cause it's simpler
You'll be here again
All it takes are three words
Would you kindly take this picture?

And all that it will take
Is a golf-club to the head
And after everything we've been through
You reign is at an end
You'll do everything for me
And all I have to do
Is say a few simple words
Your mind is my will

The world ends with not a bang
But with a whimper
'Cause it's simpler
You'll be here again
All it takes are three words
Would you kindly kill your maker

And it's like you've always said
A man chooses and a slave obey

Everything that I've worked to make
It ends now, it ends today
In the future they will say
That's Frank Fontaine, that's Frank Fontaine
The maker of fate, the true illustrator
The one who can bend a man's will to his favour
A wolf among sheep, A shark in the water
Breaking everything that we sought to discover

Three simple words is all I need
Would you kindly do this for me?
Three simple words is all I need
Would you kindly?

Is a man not entitled, to the sweat of his own brow?
No says the man in Washington
No says the man in the Vatican
No says the man in Moscow
It belongs to the poor
It belongs to God
It belongs to Everyone
A city where the artist would not fear the censor
Where science would not fear petty morality
A city where the great would not be constrained by the small
With the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well.

We will build this city
On the ocean floor
We will create our world
Without the torment of war
We will build our city
On the ocean floor
And with the sweat of your brow
Rapture can become your city as well
