lyrics

Verse 1

It’s not us against them; I don’t want to take sides
It’s not the women and men that expand the divides
I want to make friends I want to make amends
I’ll stop to think and just hope it transcends

I’m all stressed out I’m in a panic I feel
Our life is represented in a cinematic newsreel
What do we do if the smoking gun ain’t smoking?
I don’t think they care and I don’t think they’re joking

If you’re into religion they’re all under one steeple
If you think just a smidgen we are all one people
We’re killing ourselves; yes that’s me and you
It reminds me of the days back in World War Two

Bomb, psalm; take a page out of Vietnam
The last thing to do is to keep everyone calm
Prey on their weakness, they think, they worry
They’ll all go away if you bomb them in a hurry

Chorus

Blast the world into space; I’m sick of the human race
Show me your back cause I don’t want to see your face
Let’s get rid of it; It’s all going to waste
So let’s all use our heads and blast the world into space

Get me out of this place; it’s such a disgrace
We can blow everything up but we can’t leave a trace
Just think for a second; it’s us we’d replace
So let’s all use our heads and blast the world into space


Verse 2

Religion, relation it’s a constant quotation
Frequent intolerance breeds frequent frustration
Old wars, cold sores; both sides are insane
I’m yet to see benefits of a militant campaign

These days we ponder on the way our life’s heading
It’s all coming to and end, that’s what we are betting
We need a level head before we need a savior,
We need peace and prosperity not suicidal behaviour

A dubious democracy in fixed elections
It’s time to listen, close your mind and take directions
Tow the party line; tell half truths and lie
You’re a traitor, its treason, no reason you die

Bomb them to the Stone Age; it’s the only way to do it
And if that doesn’t work get some nukes on to it
But an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind
Its time El Presidente you’ve got to make up your mind

Chorus

Blast the world into space; I’m sick of the human race
Show me your back cause I don’t want to see your face
Let’s get rid of it; It’s all going to waste
So let’s all use our heads and blast the world into space

Get me out of this place; it’s such a disgrace
We can blow everything up but we can’t leave a trace
Just think for a second; it’s us we’d replace
So let’s all use our heads and blast the world into space

Verse 3

If we gave the world to the stars there’d be no more cars
We could go away tomorrow and then live on Mars
It would be a peaceful life no troubles, no vanity
But I think I’d get bored in a life with no humanity

We all need a world that is governed by love
Runs on friendship or charity or all of the above
To hell with the fanatics not the people’s democratics
1 plus 1 equals 2 in mathematics

This issue’s gigantic if all sides are pedantic
Put me in the position, I’d be entirely sycophantic
Complimentary to everyone, try to make them smile
Tolerant not turbulent, honest not hostile

So please, please free all the refugees
They’re not any different, they don’t have a disease
Now if we prefer not knowing our ignorance is showing
If this is the only way then up is where we’re blowing

Chorus

Blast the world into space; I’m sick of the human race
Show me your back cause I don’t want to see your face
Let’s get rid of it; It’s all going to waste
So let’s all use our heads and blast the world into space

Get me out of this place; it’s such a disgrace
We can blow everything up but we can’t leave a trace
Just think for a second; it’s us we’d replace
So let’s all use our heads and blast the world into space
