ICONS OF FILTH - One Second To Midnight

The world’s in torment
Propaganda reigns
To keep us quiet ’til the fallout rains
Well I ain’t gonna shut my trap
’Cos my life’s my life & I'm shouting back
The world’s an asylum
"We've got the most weapons"
Said the eagle to the bear
"Well ours are bigger, so there"
Said bear
"Well, let’s have a war then we’ll see who’s best"
Simple, light, heat, blast, radiation, death
The world’s an asylum

(Chorus) The world’s an asylum & I'm sitting in it’s cell
Don’t feel sorry for me
’Cos you are as well
Who are these people to rule us & spurn us?
Who are these people to ridicule then burn us?
Its their personal battle & they threaten mankind
Light, heat, blast, leave me blind
The world’s an asylum
They’d never stop to think how we feel
They’d bloody our shit & vomit & make our skins
peel & turn our statures into hideous things
No thanks to them & their blindness
The death bells ring
The world’s an asylum

(Chorus)

Doomsday calls
& its.....
One second to midnight
(Midnight)
