IN A WORLD POSSESSED BY THE HUMAN MIND*
Just gimme the news
It can all be lies
Exciting over fair or the right thing at the right time
Everything is clear
Just how you described
The way it appears, 'a world possessed by the human mind'
Then I think I smiled
Then I think you said, 'it's fine'
And quietly I dressed in a world completely possessed by the human mind
We're in awe of no one
We've none of their fear
Fighting's going nowhere, and we stay right here
Where everything is quiet
A little super-dangerous
'In the shadow of the law and with colours of justice'*
Then I hope I smiled
Then I'm sure you said, 'it's fine,
They got no innarest in a world completely possessed by the human mind!'
Everything is quiet
Quiet enough to hear god rustling around in the bushes
Oh, but it was you
Girl, I was so afraid
You said, 'you shoulda seen the look on your face'
Then I hope I laughed
Then I hope I said, 'it's fine',
And quietly undressed in a world completely possessed by the human mind
Oh it was you
Girl I was so afraid
You said, 'you shoulda seen the look on yer face'
