pear_shaped_world

Before everything went pear shaped
We took our vitamins and felt great
Almost round the bend with the end of the tunnel in sight
Before someone turned out the light
Now where are the factories to practise what we preach
with the pinnacle of cynical so easily in reach
Somewhere in the alphabet there's a word I can't pronounce
For the feeling that I always get when a newsflash is announced
Thanks for the loss of memory
Of how things probably used to be
A make believe made up for me
when I was just a boy

(Stand back)
This is the police
There's nothing for you to see
Just an outline drawn in chalk
Round the victim's rotting corpse
Don't drive across the state
To rubberneck and gape
At the blue and white plastic tape
Round the world that's gone pear shaped

Your future rests on a lucky guess
but wherever you choose to go
Try a little tenderness and a bit of self control
don't let temptation, frustration and the blues
make you an offer that you cannot refuse
Desire is the driver
fear is in the frame
Greed is an accessory
but society is to blame

(Stand back)
This is the police
There's nothing for you to see
Just an outline drawn in chalk
Round the victim's rotting corpse
Don't drive across the state
To rubberneck and gape
At the blue and white plastic tape
Round the world that's gone pear shaped

Thanks for the loss of memory
of how things probably used to be
A make believe made up for me
when I was just a boy

We don't want to grow up feeling this insecure
