Stop the World
I can smile at routine even strife, so much I'm a slave working
through this precious life.
But today this fresh air is polluted everywhere, today at the world I am starting to despair
Today so many thoughts are going through my head, I want peace instead, I want peace instead.
Stop the World I want to get off, Stop the World I want to get off
Stop the World. Stop this train I'm on to stand still for a moment out of time
But I've been down these roads before, its no secret the daily grind becomes a bore
we've all seen sunrise and we've dreamed for more, we fight for freedom in peace and in war.
Lets get away from all these streets with their work and no play, away from the routine of weeks years and days.
Far away from what is right and what is wrong, for up on a hill there is freedom still, up on a hill freedom still
Stop the World I want to breathe out, Stop the World I want to breathe in
Stop the World start my life again one moment at a time
For I'm alive, alive alive alive alive, I'm alive alive alive alive alive
I can see it now above the clouds of my mind
Lets head off for the hills stretch into the sky, Let go our burdens and start to fly
From our small view see what is true as what is not, falls away, what is not true will fall away
Stop the World lets start again, Stop the World back to where we began
Stop the World lets find some peace in our mind, and maybe peace in the world too
For we're alive alive alive alive alive Come on now above the clouds of your mind
