Love your husband and love your wife
Isn't this world enough?
The gas that lets you live your life
Isn't this world enough?
All those living in splendor and in sunshine
Isn't this world enough?
Those who seek calm going under the knife
Isn't this world enough?

Isn't this world enough?
Isn't this world enough?
Those who seek calm from under the knife
Isn't this world enough?

You're searching for answers in clouds and under rocks
Isn't this world enough?
You starch your collar and pull on Sunday socks
Isn't this world enough?
You're seeking tips of the cap from your superman
But isn't this world enough?
You've just gone blind, you're a human stopped clock
Isn't this world enough?

Isn't this world enough?
Isn't this world enough?
You've just gone blind, you're a human stopped clock
Isn't this world enough?

So love this vessel while you're aboard
There'll be no deposit back from a cosmic landlord
You don't need to hang your hat on belief in bumper stickers
There'll be no love lost, just pull on that ripcord
Isn't this world enough?
This world enough?
This world so...

Isn't this world enough?
Isn't this world enough?
There'll be no love lost, just pull on that ripcord
Isn't this world enough?

Isn't this world enough?
Isn't this world enough?
From your first exhale to your very last breath
Isn't this world enough?

Song facts

"A tongue-in-cheek take on the importance people put on 'higher power' belief systems. The repeated refrain is asking why people can't just be amazed by the natural things on this planet rather than attributing it all to a god or idol. It also has a Springsteen, gospel-like musical backdrop. It was inspired by the comedy stylings of Tim Minchin."
