Gasoline, Gasoline (The World’s Aflame)

Lyrics by Franke James and Billiam James

The love affair with gasoline is ending
Soaring costs… forcing drivers
Abandon gas-powered
No matter where you live, gasoline prices are going up

You took me for a ride, and now we’re lost
I’m choking on your pollution trip
You’re making me cough. You’re turning me off
I’m breaking this relationship

Gasoline, Gasoline
You’re driving me insane
Gasoline, Gasoline
The world’s aflame
Gasoline, Gasoline
I found someone new
Someone better
Better than you

We had a good run, but now we’re done
You’re poisoning our atmosphere
You don’t even care, pumping dirt in our air
Leading us on, the end is near

You fossil fool, I reject your rule
We gotta leave you in the ground
I’m outta the door with my foot to the floor
We gotta leave you in the ground

Gasoline, Gasoline
You’re driving me insane
Gasoline, Gasoline
The world’s aflame
Gasoline, Gasoline
I found someone new
Someone better
Better than you

Sea levels are rising
Polar bears are dying
Our children are crying

Around the world countries are racing
To phase out gasoline cars

Gotta go quick, electric
Change the way we move around
Gotta go quick, electric
Change the way we move around

I got a new love, an electric flame
With free city charging and VIP parking
Zooming past you in the HOV lane
I’m clean and green, and my love is sparking

Gasoline, Gasoline
I got a new dream
Gasoline, Gasoline
I’m going green
Gasoline, Gasoline
I found someone new
And I’m leaving
Leaving you
