  • He imagines the world
    As the angel ascending
    Like the ghost of a man
    Who is tied up to the chair

    And he tries to believe
    That his life has a meaning
    With his hand on his heart
    Pour le monde, pas pour la guerre

    And I wake up blind
    Like my dreams were too bright
    And I lost my regard
    For the good things that I had
    And the radio was sad

    When you listen for good
    In a hope that comes to nothing
    'Cause the liars moved in
    And they believe their own dark medicine

    You act so nonchalant
    But he is not a dog
    Perform for you in the stadium
    For the world, not for the war

    And he won't hesitate
    Though it might lead to heartache
    In the nightclub Indigo
    For the world, not for the war
    Pour le monde, pas pour la guerre

    When you listen for good
    In the hope that comes to nothing
    'Cause the liars moved in
    And they believe their own dark medicine
    Believing it's good
    Behind their jaded eyes: a dilemma

    He's the best you've ever had
    He's so low you'll never know
    He's the best you've ever known
    He's so low you'll never know

    He's so low you'll never know
    (He's the best) Writer/s: NEIL FINN
