We're in the firing line and no-one's getting out alive
We're backed against the wall, the crowd are screaming for blood
Two young lovers lost in this frozen universe, star struck and holding on to anything that floats
I guess it's true when we met we were wrapped up in lies
Nothing came between us but the doubt in your eyes
But every doubt grows steady like a spark to the blaze
It'll burn your house down,
Burn your house down, down

Can anybody tell me what sort of machine this is
It's beating like a drum against the back of my eye
Pour more chemicals into the water supply, take a look around you, they're dropping like flies
I wanted for nothing more than for you to see me come alive
Can't you understand it's recognition I strive for
I ought to stand here watching as you're singing away
It just makes my heart break
Makes my heart break, break

We are all born helpless and frail
Don't forget that you, you rule the world
You rule the world

This is the last stop, join the ranks, file off
It's 7 in the morning and you're way off the rail
High on equity, you're so deep in your profanity
That people just look through you like your not even real
but it's a beautiful thing to see the world in this place
Drifting through the suits with a smile on your face
But as the sun breaks free from its municipal cage you will never look back,
Never look back

We are all born helpless and frail
Don't forget that you, you rule the world
You rule the world
