World Citizen- I Won’t Be Disappointed

A song with powerfull words and alot of meanings and simple music it is performed by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian. It was a soundtrack in the movie Bable
What happened here?
The butterfly has lost its wings
The air’s too thick to breathe
And there’s something in the drinking water.
The sun comes up
The sun comes up and you’re alone
Your sense of purpose come undone
The traffic tails back to the maze on 101
And the news from the sky
Is looking better for today
In every single wayBut not for you
World citizen
World citizen
It’s not safe
All the yellow birds are sleeping
Cos the air’s not fit for breathing
It’s not safe
Why can’t we be
Without beginning, without end?
Why can’t we be?
World citizen
World citizen
And if I stop
And talk with you awhile
I’m overwhelmed by the scale
Of everything you feel
The lonely inner state emergency
I want to feel
Until my heart can take no more
And there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t give
I want to break
The indifference of the days
I want a conscience that will keep me wide awake
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be.
I saw a face
It was a face I didn’t know
Her sadness told me everything about my own
Can’t let it be
When least expected there she is
Gone the time and space that separates us
And I’m not safeI think I need a second skin
No, I’m not safe
World citizen
World citizen
I want to travel by night
Across the steppes and over seas
I want to understand the cost
Of everything that’s lost
I want to pronounce all their names correctly
World citizen
World citizen
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be.
She doesn’t laugh
We’ve gone from comedy to commerce
And she doesn’t feel the ground she walks upon
I turn away
And I’m not sleeping well at night
And while I know this isn’t right
What can you do?
