I find these lyrics really funny for some reason...

I swapped my innocence for pride
Crushed the end within my stride
Said "I'm strong, now I know that I'm a leaver"
I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away

Mascara bleeds a blackened tear, oh
And I am cold, yes I'm cold
But not as cold as you are
I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
I love the sound of you walking away, walking away, yeah

Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?
No buildings will fall down
Won't you walk away?
No quake will split the ground
Won't you walk away?
The sun won't swallow the sky
Won't you walk away?
Statues will not cry
Don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?
Why don't you walk away?

I cannot turn to see those eyes
As apologies may rise
I must be strong, stay an unbeliever
And love the sound of you walking away, you walking away

Mascara bleeds into my eye, oh
And I'm not cold, I am old
At least as old as you are
(lots of "la"ing)

And as you walk away
Oh, as you walk away
And as you walk away
My headstone crumbles down
As you walk away
The Hollywood wind's a howl
As you walk away
The Kremlin's falling
As you walk away
Radio 4 is static
As you walk away
Oh, as you walk away
Oh, as you walk away,
Oh, as you walk away...

The stab of stiletto
On a silent night
Stalin smiles and Hitler laughs
Churchill claps Mao Tse-Tung on the back...

Still upgrading from Hoary Hedgehog to Breezy Badger. It hasn't been perfect by any means, but it's gone alright thus far, really...
