So long my earthly paradise
So long to you
So long my earthly paradise
So long to you

They say you've been poisoned
They say you've closed down
But I saw a light 'neath your door
There's so many rumours on
This side of town
Who knows what that one is for

So long my earthly paradise
Blast Off Hotel
I dreamed you, on rails of mercury
Drove you to Hell

There's pigs in the bedroom
And pigs in the hall
They're chewing away
At the wires
And a mis-shappen God
In the deck chair outside
Where Josephine
Used to relax

My earthly cloud, that mountain home
My angel of the sea
There's nowhere else that I could roam
That means that much to me

So long my earthly paradise
Strangers hands
Gathered gold off your pinnacles
On the sand
The bastards that destroy our lives
Are sometimes just ourselves
But mostly they're invisible
I hope they fry in hell
I hope you fry in hell
