John Cooper Clarke - The Day The World Stood Still lyrics

Deafening whispers loud and clear
The sound of nothing meets my ears
I get the message - i know the drill
This is the day the world stood still

The day the world stood still
The day the world stood still
No traffic noise or sparrows trill
From the dead flowers on the window sill
This is the day the world stood still

In the mirror stand and stare
Like i figure nobody there
Time to spare time to kill
This is the day the world stood still

The day the world stood still
The day the world stood still
From the underground to the overspill
No trouble not even at the mill
This is the day the world stood still

Specs of dirt and static flies
In spacelike spots before my eyes
A cup of coffee and a couple of pills
This is the day the world stood still

The day the world stood still
The day the world stood still
The big freeze-up gimme a chill
No sense in feeling ill
This is the day the world stood still

I got the whole town to myself
I clear the drugstore shelf by shelf
I couldn't pay I had my fingers in the till
This is the day the world stood still

The day the world stood still
The day the world stood still
Drink and drugs and a thousand thrills
From now on it's all downhill
This is the day the world stood still

I'm falling from the top of my voice
I wreck the vehicles of my choice
A Rolls-Royce a coupe de ville
This is the day the world stood still

The day the world stood still
The day the world stood still
The last train to Clarkesville
Ran off the rails nobody killed
This is the day the world stood still

I'm driving in a company car
I'm jiving in the tango bar
I'm dining at the luxury grill
This is the day the world stood still

The day the world stood still
The day the world stood still
No trouble not even at the mill
At the end of the day I pay no bills
This is the day the world stood still
