Favourite lyric from World Peace

mcrickson

Reckless Endangerment
For me, the most affecting line on the record is in 'Mountjoy':

What those in power do to you
reminds us at a glance
how humans hate each others' guts
and show it, given a chance.


I think this line even more than the title track aptly expresses the theme Moz is going for.

"If you cannot stand this fake world
If you cannot stand this fake world
Take my hand
If you cannot stand this fake world

I take 16 pills to send me to sleep
And 16 pills to shake me awake

What does it mean?"

You're that stretch of the beach
That the tide doesn't reach
No meaning, no reason
The lonely season
I like that, too. He makes reference to that lyric in Autobiography about himself, "I'm that stretch of the beach that the sea never reaches." pg. 179/Penguin

This whole part of Mountjoy

A swagger hides the fear in here
By this rule we breathe
And there is no one upon this earth
whom I'd feel sad to leave

You see
We all lose
We all lose

What those in power do to you
Reminds us at a glance
How humans hate each others guts
And show it given the chance

We never say aloud the things
That we say in our prayers
'Cos no one cares

Many executed here
By the awful lawfully good
But the only thing that makes me cry
Is when I see the sky...


Extended:

One Of Our Own

So give me the gun
I love you
A job half done
Isn't done...

Oh well...enough said
"If you don't get three A's"
her lovely boyfriend said,
"your shame is sure to stain the family name"

How true....

Never spotted that, good find.

I agree with those who have mentioned lyrics from Smiler and Mountjoy, those are the songs with the highest overall lyrical quality on the album. I didn't take to the music on those tracks instantly, but since first listening to World Peace exactly a month ago today they (like much of the album) have grown on me immensely.
