"Stop It You're Killing Me" as written by and Andrew Cairns....
The world is fucked
And so am I
Maybe it's the other way 'round
I can't seem to decide

Domestic refugees
Sink in the same boat as me
We suffer alone
And these days I don't wanna go home

Idiot psychology promising equality
So where is the land of the free?
Stop it, you're killing me

Love is for the weak
Or so you'd have me believe
The thought's killing me
No body but a head O.D.

Don't know what's worse
The loss of death
Or the gain of birth I try to understand
I can't accept just what I am

Idiot psychology promising equality
So where is the land of the free?
Stop it, you're killing me

I'm leaving on a train that's six miles down
Can't feel no pain, can't feel you now
When you drift away, I'm singing
"On my way I'm telling you"

I can hear you coming to
I can see you pushing through
Tell me can you see the
Can you feel the rain

Idiots psychology, promising equality
So where is the land of the free?
Stop it, you're killing me

Idiot psychology, promising equality
So where is the land of the free?
Stop it, you're killing me

    General CommentIt's about the situation in Northern Ireland. On the one side hand you've got the British government trying to assure everyone that things will be just fine and everyone will be perfectly happy - while they do nothing to stop the violence between the loyalist and republican terrorist factions. And, of course, everyone else is caught in the middle - hence "domestic refugees" who "sink in the same boat as me". Basically, everyone's screwed.

    General CommentI'm not very good with abbreviations... Can someone explain what a "head O.D." is ?

    General CommentI had never thought it dealt with a specific context or specific country, but what skroo says makes sense.
    I've always heard this song as a universal expression of... Being screwed by authority and governements and feeling helpless.
