The Divine Comedy Tailspin Lyrics
Huge tailspin-is the world gonna win?
Is the nation gonna open up and let us in?
Hard luck! Your policies suck-
Your rhetoric will save your face, but not your skin
This time-it's hard to define
So watch the leaves turn brown for the last time
Too late! You've sealed our fate-
No returns, no emergency debate... but wait!
I hate unhappy endings-and there doesn't have to be one!
Tailspin-your hair's getting thin
Your rhetoric will save your face, but not your council estates
Gee-life is cheap!
The forests pine and the willows weep
Checkmate! You've sealed our fate-
The world is way past its sell-by date
Tailspin-is the world gonna win?
Tailspin's on the outside looking in
Tailspin, I repent my sins
But when I get to heaven will you let me in?
Tailspin, save our kin, save our skin...
The message we are sending is a very real one
The world we are defending could be a very green one
We hate unhappy endings-and
THERE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ONE!
