Leon Future Liedtext

Give me back my broken night

My mirrored room, my secret life

It’s lonely here,

There’s no one left to torture

Give me absolute control

Over every living soul,

And lie beside me, baby,

That’s an order!

Give me crack and anal sex

Take the only tree that’s left

And stuff it up the hole

In you culture

Give me back the Berlin Wall

Give me Stalin and St. Paul

I’ve seen the future, brother:

It is murder.

Things are going to slide in all directions

Won’t be nothing

Nothing you can measure any more

The blizzard of the word

Has crossed the threshold

And it has overturned

The order of the soul

When they said REPENT

I wonder what they meant

You don’t know me from the wind

You never will, you never did

I’m the little Jew

Who wrote the bible

I’ve seen the nations rise and fall

I’ve heard their stories, heard them all

But love’s the only engine of survival

You servant here, he has been told

To say it clear, to say it cold:

It’s over, it ain’t going

Any father

And now the wheels of heaven stop

You feel the devil’s riding crop

Get ready for the future:

It is murder

Things are going to slide in all directions

Won’t be nothing

Nothing you can measure any more

The blizzard of the word

Has crossed the threshold

And it has overturned

The order of the soul

When they said REPENT

I wonder what they meant

There’ll be the breaking

Of the ancient western code

Your private life will suddenly explode

There’ll be phantoms

There’ll be fires on the road

And the white man dancing

You’ll see your woman

Hanging upside down

Her features covered by her fallen gown

and all the lousy little poets

Coming round

Trying to sound like Charlie Manson

Give me back the Berlin Wall

Give me Stalin and St. Paul

Give me Christ

Or give me Hiroshima

Destroy another fetus now

We don’t like children anyhow

I’ve seen the future, baby:

It is murder

Things are going to slide in all directions

Won’t be nothing

Nothing you can measure any more

The blizzard of the word

Has crossed the threshold

And it has overturned

The order of the soul

When they said REPENT

I wonder what they meant
