I will leave the wallpaper life and run away to the Foreign Legion
I will leave the wallpaper life and run away to the Foreign Legion
And as the tanks roll into town, as the tanks roll into town
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
As the tanks roll into town, as the tanks roll into town
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you

I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
I don't know why I feel so skinned alive, oh

Run until your lungs are sore until you cannot feel it anymore
Run until your lungs are sore until you find an open door
I'll build you up to pull you down
Tie you to your feet and watch you drown
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
I'll build you up to pull you down
Tie you to a stake and watch you burn in Hell

I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
I don't know why I feel so skinned alive, oh, oh

I'll find another skin to wear, I'll find another skin to wear
