Tailspin

Demo version (2:01)

Tailspin –
Is the world gonna win?
Is the ocean gonna open up and let us in?
Hard luck!
Your policies suck,
Your rhetoric will save your face, but not your skin.
This crime
Is hard to define
So watch the leaves turn brown for the last time.
Too late!
You’ve sealed our fate –
No u-turns, no emergency debate,
But wait!

I hate unhappy endings
And there doesn’t have to be one!

Tailspin –
The air’s getting thin
The ocean’s getting sick of all the crap you’re pumping in
Test ban,
Get a real good tan
Your rhetoric’ll save your face, but not your cancerous skin.
Deep,
Life is cheap!
The forests pine and the willow’s weep
Check-mate!
You’ve sealed our fate –
The world is way past its sell-by date.
But wait!

I hate unhappy endings
And there doesn’t have to be one!

Tailspin – is the world gonna win?
Tailspin – from the outside looking in.
Tailspin, I repent my sins
But when I get to heaven will you let me in?
Tailspin, save our skins, save our skins.
But wait!

I hate unhappy endings
And there doesn’t have to be one!
The message we are sending
Is a very real one
The world we are defending
Could be a very green one.
We all hate unhappy endings
And there doesn’t have to be one!
There doesn’t have to be one!
There doesn’t have to be a tailspin!
