Big Bad World

TV screens are nipping at your ears
Planting seeds and imagery, telling you what to fear
Cos it’s just around your corner, it’s just around your street
If you don’t shut the gates they’ll be nipping at your feet

So we put up walls, and we put up bars
The extra-ordinary ain’t quite so far
Cos it’s just around your corner, it’s just around your street
If you don’t lock the doors they’ll be nipping at your feet

I know that I am skin and bones
And I know my time will come and go
But I don’t believe this big bad world will follow you where you go
But if it’s tapping at your door
Ask it to come back no more

Kids these days can’t go outside to play
There’s too many predators to shake up their day
So we lock ourselves inside while the criminals run free
We’re imprisoned in our minds by what we think we see

But I know that I am skin and bones
And I know my time will come and go
But I don’t believe this big bad world will follow you where you go
But if it’s tapping at your door
Ask it to come back no more

It’s a big bad world, a big bad world outside
You don’t wanna be, you don’t wanna be going outside
It’s a big bad world, a big bad world outside
But do you wanna be, do you wanna be locked in side?

But I know that I am skin and bones
And I know my time will come and go
But I don’t believe this big bad world will follow you where you go
But if it’s tapping at your door
Ask it to come back no more
