Ignorance Is Bliss

Active Studio Demo, Banbridge, 1989 (3:17)

I rely upon your charity to survive.
I deny myself to prove that I’m alive.
I plead guilty if sweet innocence is this.
I support the motion
“Ignorance is bliss”
Kill me with your kiss.
It’s
“Whoops Apocalypse!”
Ignorance must be bliss.

You rely upon my charity to survive.
I deny myself to keep this love alive.
You walk headlong off the edge of the abyss.
I oppose the motion
“Ignorance is bliss”
Kill me with your kiss.
It’s
“Whoops Apocalypse!”
Ignorance must be bliss.

Bliss,
“Whoops Apocalypse!”
Ignorance must be.

We rely upon its charity to survive.
We deny ourselves the luxury of life.
We could go on fighting till there’s nothing left.
I propose the motion
“Ignorance is death”.
