lyrics

a time bomb ready to explode
someone tried to pay off a debt with fake gold
the crowd smelled blood when the news got out
when the jury reached its verdict there was never any doubt

bad news travel fast
one day you’re an idol the next you’re an outcast
bad news travel fast
ring them bells because this world won’t last

war breaks out come dysentery
heaven shall fall down upon the unrepentant regencies
frontline losses carry the cost
when the cavalry mounts the poor has paid the cost

bad news travel fast
one day you’re an idol the next you’re an outcast
bad news travel fast
ring them bells because this world won’t last

poisoned fruit lies fertile in the ground
something must be dying neath this sacred mound
theres no moral to the story maybe an ethical approach
to the statements of facts that we learn down the road

bad news travel fast
one day you’re an idol the next you’re an outcast
bad news travel fast
ring them bells because this world won’t last
