Livin' life in the fast lane, no time to feel any pain The way you were brought up, left you so stuck up Now all you are is just one big fuck up The liars, the beggers, the pushers, the thieves Never givewhat you really need And it's only now that you just find out All they wanna do is make you bleed Where'd it all go? What's it all mean? How'd I end up here so far inbetween Where am I going? Where have I been? What is the circumstance I'm living in? You drive yourself nuts trying to figure this out Finding the answer to what life's about But the more that you ask, the less that you see We're a part of this one giant hipocracy
(start PRE-CHORUS) And the piper blows And the audience grows Fall to their knees They worship greed And the TV plays It's Simon says Can I make this clear? Get me the fuck out of here! (end PRE-CHORUS)
(start CHORUS) Stop the world! I wanna get off! I can't take this bullshit! It stinks so bad, it's making me cough This place is a fucking hell! I'm so tired of the bullshit smell Mess with me, I'm bound to get tough Stop the world, I wanna get off! (end CHORUS)
Everyday is like a sentence A convicted crimminal doing penance But for our sins, there's no repentence You are the sorceror's apprentice The living cry for the dying And yes there is no denying That a referee call, gonna save us all Instead we find that they are lying
I wanna tell you, that it's gonna be fine People like me, say it all the time But the truth is, you gotta live smart Stick up for yourself, take it to the heart
Stop the world! Stop the world! Stop the world! Stop the world! Stop the world! Stop the world! Stop the world! Stop the world!
