  • I stood there beside myself,
    Thinking hard about the weather
    Then came by a friend of mine
    Suggested we go out together
    Then I knew it from the start:
    This friend of mine would fall apart
    Pretending not to see his gun,
    I said "let's go out and have some fun"
    I know, you know, you believe in a land of love
    I know, you know, we believe in a land of love

    I have always thought about
    Staying here and going out
    Tonight I should have stayed at home,
    Playing with my pleasure zone
    He has always been so strange,
    I'd often thought he was deranged
    Pretending not to see his gun,
    I said "let's go out and have some fun"
    I know, you know, we believe in a land of love
    I know, you know, we believe in a land of love

    When you are alone at night
    You search yourself for all the things
    That you believe are right
    If you give it all away
    You throw away your only chance to be here today
    Then a fight breaks out on your street
    You lose another broken heart in a land of meat
    My friend, he took his final breath
    Now I know the perfect kiss is the kiss of death
