Lyrics
Rock Stars Will Save the Earth by Laurence Wilson Let me take you down to the suicide machine. Where Janis Joplin weeps for Sydney Viscous. And wonders if the world will ever miss him. The children at his feet are so capricious. And as the needle spits its bile, All the sad faces finally start to smile. Run your fingers across the suicide machine. And feel the thrum of Keith Moon as he drives into the pool. He’s wearing cheap leatherette lipstick He’ll kiss you hard upon your lips and play the sorry fool. And as your fears chase him away, Curtis shoots an arrow through the day.. Suicide machine, Suicide machine, Suicide machine, Suicide machine. Rock stars will save the Earth, they’ll save the Earth. Rock stars will save the Earth, they’ll save the Earth. Put your money into the suicide machine. Elvis will play for you with Lennon. Each song will be from the underground. They’ll be finished by half past eleven. They’ll laugh like kids and share a smoke And if you die they’ll let you in on the joke. And as you turn away from the Suicide Machine, Feel the grip of Johnny Ramone, with his paper bags of tape cassettes, He’s searching for a way to get home. He’ll hitch a lift on your shoulder, his fingers feel like bone And if you do not shake him off, His disaster will turn your future into stone. Stone, stone, stone…. Suicide machine, Suicide machine, Suicide machine, Suicide machine. Rock stars will save the Earth, they’ll save the Earth. Rock stars will save the Earth, they’ll save the Earth. Rock stars will save the Earth, they’ll save the Earth.
