Survival Songs: Duran Duran, Ordinary World

This is part of a series of songs with excerpts of lyrics I’ve found relevant to leaving fundamentalism. Lyrics below the jump.

What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some’d say
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away

But I won’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world

Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world

I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and greed
Feared today, forgot tomorrow
Here beside the news of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

Every world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
