I Love The World

[Lyrics by J. Sullivan]



The roll of distant thunder breaks

The afternoon of silence wakes

They hurry through from Petergate as if they know this dance

In fury blind I drive at night

Across the moors, the open roads

Beneath the freezing starry skies, racing in some trance



These cities are illusions of some triumph over Nature's laws

We've seen the iron carcass rust and buildings topple into dust

And as the waters rise it seems we cling to all the rootless things

The Christian lies, technology, while spirits scream and sing...

Oh, God, I love the world



Well I never said I was a clever man

But I know enough to understand

That the endless leaps and forward plans will someday have to cease

You blind yourselves with comfort lies

Like lightning never strikes you twice

And we laugh at your amazed surprise as the Ark begins to sink



The temple that is built so well, to separate us from ourselves

Is a power grown beyond control and a will without a face

And watching from outside I wish that I could wash my hands of this

But we are locked together here, this bittersweet embrace...

Oh, God, I love the world



And if one day the final fire

Explodes across the whitened sky

I know you said you'd rather die and make it over fast

With courage from your bravest friends

Waiting outside for the end

With no bitterness but an innocence that I can't seem to grasp



I know, somehow I will survive this fury just to stay alive

So drunk with sickness, weak with pain

I can walk the hills one last time

Scarred and smiling, dying slow

I'll scream to no one left at all

I told you so, I told you so, I told you so...

Oh, God, I love the world

I Love The World /
