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
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.
