The Thrill Seekers

If you have been in the south of Africa
and seen small and skinny children fighting with machine guns
then it was the thrill seekers experiment you have been witnessing

If you have been in the north of Asia
and seen women with small feet picking rice in paddy fields
then it was the thrill seekers experiment you have been witnessing

Have you ever made it through the customs in an airport within the Europe
and seen the ways of vodka and hooliganism?
It was the thrill seekers experiment you have been witnessing

Have you been jumping on grass fields in Australia
brushed history’s teeth and washed its mouth with crocodile tears?
Then it was the thrill seekers experiment you have been witnessing

Have you lived in the Southern parts of America
danced the samba or been balling like you have got it stuck in your head?
It was the thrill seekers experiment you have been witnessing

Have you ever flown all the way to North America
just to simply try your luck in Las Vegas or on the screen?
Ever felt like it was the thrill seekers experiment you were witnessing?

If you have been flying around the world all the way to Antarctica
I hope you’ll find your way back to the civilization
perhaps flying like the penguins, they truly are the world’s true thrill seekers
