FOOLS 03:25
The village is on fire The fool just combs his hair  As I’m citing old wisdom Refusing to be scared But I feel doomed Do you feel it too ?  I feel doomed Do you feel it too ? World war three - happening outside of me  World war three - happening despite of me The eighties had its heroes  The naughties knew of none  Swipe your tiny window See god in everyone But the future needs a mob now  And you’re all member number one  You looking for a job now? Go shape the days to come World war three - happening outside of me  World war three - happening despite of me I feel doomed Do you feel it too?  THE VILLAGE IS ON FIRE THE FOOL JUST COMBS HIS HAIR Context «Fools»: This song was written in early 2017, around the time when Turkey became a dictatorship by law. The opening line („The village is on fire, the fools just combs his hair“) is an old turkish saying that warns of the dangers of ignorance.

LYRICS

The village is on fire
The fool just combs his hair 
As I’m citing old wisdom
Refusing to be scared

But I feel doomed
Do you feel it too ? 
I feel doomed
Do you feel it too ?
World war three - happening outside of me 
World war three - happening despite of me

The eighties had its heroes 
The naughties knew of none 
Swipe your tiny window
See god in everyone
But the future needs a mob now 
And you’re all member number one 
You looking for a job now?
Go shape the days to come

World war three - happening outside of me 
World war three - happening despite of me

I feel doomed
Do you feel it too? 

THE VILLAGE IS ON FIRE
