The wicker man
Holy smoke
El dorado
Paschendale
Different world
Man on the edge (live)
The reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg
Blood brothers
Rainmaker
Sign of the cross (live)
Brave new world
Fear of the dark (live)
Be quick or be dead
Tailgunner
No more lies
Coming home
The clansman (live)
For the greater good of god
These colours don't run
Bring your daughter...to the slaughter
Afraid to shoot strangers
Dance of death
When the wild wind blows
The wicker man
hand of fate is moving and thefinger points to you
he knocks you to your feet and so what are you gonna do
your tongue has frozen now you've got something to say
the piper at the gates of down is calling you his way

you watch the world exploding every single night
dancing in the night a new born in the light
say goodbye to gravity and say goodbye to death
hello to eternity and live for every breath

your time will come
your time will come

the ferry man wants his money you ain't going to give it back
he can push his own boat as you set up of the track
nothing you can contemplate will ever be the same
every second is a new spark, sets the universe aflame

you watch the world exploding every night
dancing in the night a new born in the light
brothers and their fathers joining hands and make a chain
the shadow of the wicker man is rising up again

your time will come
your time will come

Holy smoke
Believe in me send no money
I died on the cross and that ain't funny
But my so called friends they're making me a joke
They missed out what I said like I never spoke
They choose what they wanna hear they don't tell a lie
They just leave out the truth as they're watching you die
They're saving your souls by taking your money
Flies around shit bees around honey

CHORUS

Holy smoke holy smoke
There's plenty bad preachers for the devil to stoke
Feed 'em in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke yeah
Making holy smoke
Jimmy reptile and all his friends
Say they gonna be with you at the end
Burning records burning books
Holy soldiers nazi looks
Crocodile smiles just wait a while
Till the tv queen gets her make-up clean
I've lived in filth I've lived in sin
and I still smell cleaner than the shit you're in

REPEAT CHORUS

Holy smoke
Smells good
They ain't religious but they ain't no fools
When noah built his cadillac it was cool
Two by two they're still going down
And the satellite circus just left town
I think they're strange and when they're dead
They can have a lincoln for their bed
Friend of the president trick of the tail
Now they ain't got a prayer 100 years in jail

REPEAT CHORUS

HOLY SMOKE

El dorado
Gotta tell you a story on a cold winters night
You'll be sailin' for glory before you know what
is right
So come over here now, I got a vision for you
It's my personal snake oil, it's just something I
do

I'm the jester with no tears and I'm playing on
your fears
I'm a trickster smiling underneath this mask of
love and death
The eternal lie I've told about the pyramids of
gold
I've got you hooked at every turn your money's
left to burn

You'll be wanting a contract, you'll be waiting a
while
I'd like to give you my contact but that isn't my
style
Well you only get one chance and it's too good to
miss
If I gave a lot to ya then I wouldn't exist

Greed, lust and angry pride it's the same old,
same old ride
The smoke and mirrors visions that you see are
just like me
I'm a banker's face with just a letter out of
place
I know someone just like you knows someone just
like me

El Dorado come and play, El Dorado step this way
Take a ticket for the ride, El Dorado streets of
gold
See those over sold, you've got one last chance
to try

So gone is the glory and gone is the gold
Well if you need a story I've come it has to be
told
Well you can say I'm a devil and I wouldn't say,
no
But out here on the dark side, hey, on with the
show

So is told, big and bad and twice as bold
This ship of fools is sinking as the cracks begin
to grow
There is no easy way for an honest man today
Which is something you should think of as my life
boat sails away

El Dorado come and play, El Dorado step this way
Take a ticket for the ride, El Dorado streets of
gold
See those over sold, you've got one last chance
to try

Paschendale
in a foreign field he lay
lonely soldier unkown grave
on his dying words he prays
tell the world of paschendale

relive all that he's been through
last communioun of his soul
rust your bullets with his tears
let me tell you 'bout his years

laying low in a blood filled trench
kill tim 'til my very own death
on my face i can feel the falling rain
never see my friends again

in the smoke in the mud and lead
smell the fear and the feeling of dread
soon be time to go over the wall
rapid fire and the end of us all

whistles, shouts and more gun fire
lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
be reunited with my dead friends soon

many soldiers eighteen years
drown in mud no more tears
surely a war no-one can win
killing time about to begin

home, far away
from the war, a chance to live again
home, far away
but the war, no chance to live again

the bodies of ours and our foes
the sea of death it overflows
in no man's kand god only knows
into jaws of death we go

crucified as if on a cross
allied troops they mourn their loss
german war propaganda machine
such before has never been seen

swear i heard the angels cry
pray to god no more may die
so that people know the truth
tell the tale of paschendale

cruelty has a human heart
everyman does play his part
terror of the men we kill
the human heart is hungry still

i stand my ground for the very last time
gun is ready as i stand in line
nervous wait for the whistle to blow
rush of blood and over we go

blood is falling like the rain
it's crimson cloak unveils again
the sound of guns can't hid their shame
and so we die on paschendale

dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
running straight at the cannon fire
running blind as i hold my breath
say a prayer symphony of death

as we charge the enemy lines
a burst of fire and we go down
i choke a cry but no-one hears
fell the blood go down my throat

home, far away
from the war, a chance to live again
home, far away
but the war, no chance to live again

see my spirit on the wind
across the lines beyond the hill
friend and foe will meet again
those who died at paschendale

Man on the edge (live)
the freeway is jammed
and it's backed up for miles
the car is an oven and baking is wild
nothing is ever the way it should be
what we deserve we just don't get you see

a briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
each step gets closer to losing his head
is someone in heaven are they looking down
'cause nothing is fair just you look around

falling down
falling down
falling down

he's sick of waiting of lying like this
there's a hole in the sky for the angels to kiss
branded a leper because you don't fit
in the land of the free
you can live by your wits

once he built missiles a nation's defense
now he can't even give birthday presents
across the city he leaves in his wake
a glimpse of the future a canibal state

falling down
falling down
falling down

The reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg
let me tell you about my life
let me tell you about my dreams
let me tell you about the things that happened
always real to me

let me tell you of my hope
of my need to reach the sky
let me take you on an awkward journey
let me tell you why

let me tell you why

why should these curses be laid upon me?
i won't be forgiven 'till i can break free
what did i do to deserve all this guilt?
paid for my sins for the sale of my soul

demons are trapped all inside of my head
my hopes have gone, i reach for heaven from hell
my sins are many, my guilt is too heavy
the pressure of knowing, of having what i know

i'm able to see things, things i don't want to see
the lives of a thousand souls, weighing down on me
i know they're crying for help, reaching out
the burden of them will take me down as well

the sin of a thousand souls not died in vain
reincarnates to let me live again

chorus: (x2)
someone to save me
something to save me from myself
to bring salvation
to exorcise this hell

2nd chorus:
someone to save me
something to save me from my hell
i taste damnation
awake from this nightmare

chorus:
someone to save me
something to save me from myself
to bring salvation
to exorcise this hell

Blood brothers
and if you're taking a walk through the garden of life
what do you think you'd expect you would see ?
just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
and in the rivers reflections of me

just for a second a glimpse of my father i see
and in a movement he beckons to me
and in the moment the memories are all that remain
and all thewounds are reopening again

we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

and as you look all around at the world in dismay
what do you see, do you think we have learned
not if you're taking a look at the war torn affray
out in the streets where the babies are burned


we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

there are times when i feel i'm afraid for the world
there are times i'm ashamed of us all
when you're floating on all the emotion you feel
and reflecting the good and the bad

will weever know what the answer to life really is ?
can you really tell me what life is ?
maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
can be swept away by fate's own hand


we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

when you think that we've used all our chances
and the chance to make everything right,
keep on making the same old mistakes
makes untipping the balance so easy
when we're living our lives on  the edge
say a prayer  on the book of the dead


we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
we're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

and if you're taking a walk on the garden of life

Rainmaker
when i was wandering in the desert
and was searching for the truth
i heard a choir of angels calling out my name
i had the feeling that my life would never be the same again
i turned my face towards the barren sun

and i know of the pain that you feel the same as me
and i dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
and the cracks in our lives like the cracks upon the ground
they are sealed and are now washed away

you tell me we can start the rain
you tell me that we all can change
you tell me we can find something to wash the tears away
you tell me we can start the rain
you tell me that we all can change
you tell me we can find something to wash the tears.....

and i know of the pain that you feel the same as me
and i dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
and the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives
they are sealed and now far away

you tell me we can start the rain
you tell me that we all can change
you tell me we can find something to wash the tears away
you tell me we can start the rain
you tell me that we all can change
you tell me we can find something to wash the tears.....

and i know of the pain that you feel the same as me
and i dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
and the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives
they are sealed and now far away

Sign of the cross (live)
eleven saintly shrouded men
silhouettes stand against the sky
one in front with a cross held high
come to wash my sins away

standing alone in the wind and rain
feeling the fear that is growing
sensing the change in the tide again
brought by the storm that is brewing
feel the anxiety hold off the fear
some of the doubt in the things you believe
now that your faith will be put to the test
nothing to do but await what is coming

why the is god still protecting me
even when i don't deserve it
though i am blessed with an inner strength
some they would call it a penance
why am i meant to face this alone
asking the question time and again
praying to god won't keep me alive
inside my head feel the fear start to rise...

they'll be saying their prayers when the moment comes
there'll be penance to pay when it's judgment day
and the guilty'll bleed when that moment comes
they'll be coming to claim, take your soul away

the sign of the cross
the name of the rose... a fire in the sky
the sign of the cross

they'll be comming to bring the eternal flame
they'll be bringing us all immortality
holding communion so the world be blessed
my creator, my god'll lay my soul to rest

the sign of the cross
the name of the rose... a fire in the sky
the sign of the cross

lost the love of heaven above
chose the lust of the earth below
eleven saintly shrouded men
came to wash my sins away

Brave new world
dying swans twisting wings
beauty not needed here
lost my love, lost my life
in this garden of fear
i have seen many things
in a lifetime alone
mother love is no more
bring this savage back home

wilderness house of pain
makes no sense of it all
close this mind dull this brain
messiah before his fall
what you see is not real
all is lost sold your soul
in this brave new world

a brave new world
in a brave new world
a brave new world
in a brave new world

dragon kings, dying queens
where is salvation now
lost my life lost my dreams
rip the bones from my flesh
silent screams laughing here
dying to tell you the truth
you are planned you are damned
in this brave new world

a brave new world
in a brave new world
a brave new world
in a brave new world

Fear of the dark (live)
i am a man who walks alone
and when i'm walking a dark road
at night or strolling through the park

when the light begins to change
i sometimes feel a little strange
a little anxious when it's dark

fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have constant fear that something's always near
fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have a phobia that someone's always there

have you run your fingers down the wall
and have you felt your neck skin crawl
when you're searching for the light?
sometimes when you're scared to take a look
at the corner of the room
you've sensed that something's watching you

have you ever been alone at night
thought you heard footsteps behind
and turned around and no one's there?
and as you quicken up your pace
you find it hard to look again
because you're sure there's someone there

watching horror films the night before
debating witches and folklores
the unknown troubles on your mind
maybe your mind is playing tricks
you sense, and suddenly eyes fix
on dancing shadows from behind

fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have constant fear that something's always near
fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have a phobia that someone's always there

when i'm walking a dark road
i am a man who walks alone

Be quick or be dead
Covered in sinners and dripping with gilt
Making your money from slime and from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers

You got to watch them ? Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven ? The thief in your head
You've got to watch them ? Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven ? The thief in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

See... what's ruling all our lives
See... who's pulling the strings...
See... what's ruling all our lives
See... who pulls the strings...
I bet you won't fall on your face
Your belly will hold you in place

The serpent is crawling inside of your ear
He says you must vote for what you want to hear
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're alright
So pull yourself stupid and rub yourself blind

You got to watch them ? Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven ? The thief in your head
You've got to watch them ? Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven ? The thief in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

You got to watch them ? Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven ? The thief in your head
You've got to watch them ? Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven ? The thief in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick!

Tailgunner
Race your way back 50 years
Ro the glow of dresden-blood and tears
In the black above by the cruel searchlight
Men will die and men will fight-yeah|
Who shot who and who fired first?
Dripping death to whet the bloodthirst
No radar lock on-skin and bone
The bomber boys are going home

CHORUS

Climb into the sky never wonder why-tailgunner
You're a tailgunner

(REPEAT)

Nail that fokker kill that son.
Gonna blow your guts out with my gun
The weather forecasts good for war
Cologne and frankfurt?have some more
Tail end charlie in the boiling sky
The Enola Gay was my last try
Now that this tailgunner's gone
No more bombers (just one big bomb)

CHORUS

No more lies
there's a darkened sky before me
there's no time to prepare
salvage a last horizon
but no regrets from me

maybe i'll be back some other day
to live again just who can say
in what shape or form that i might be
just another chance for me

a hurried time no disgrace
instead of racing to conclusion
and wishing all my life away
no-one can stop me now

time is up it couldnt last
but there's more things i'd like to do
i'm coming back to try again
someday maybe i'll wait till then

no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies

they're all sitting at my table
talking tall and drinking wine
their time is up just like me
but they just dont know it yet

so just a word of warning
when you're in your deepest dream
there's nothing you can hide from
i've got my eye on you

the clock is fast the hour is near
eventful past is everclear
my life is set the time is here
i think i'm coming home

no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies

a hurried time no disgrace
instead of racing to conclusions
and wishing all your life away
no-one can stop me now

time is up it couldnt last
but there's more things i'd like to do
i'm coming back to try again
someday maybe i'll wait till then

no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies

Coming home
When I stand before you shining in the early
morning sun
When I feel the engines roar and I think of what
we've done
Oh, the bittersweet reflection as we kiss the
earth goodbye
As the waves and echoes of the towns become the
ghosts of time

Over borders that divide the earthbound tribes
No creed and no religion, just a hundred winged
souls
We will ride this thunder bird, silver shadows on
the earth
A thousand leagues away, our land of birth

To Albion's land, coming home when I see the
runway lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

Curving on the edge of daylight 'til it slips
into the void
Waited in the long night, dreaming 'til the sun
is born again
Stretched the fingers of my hand, covered
countries with my span
Just a lonely satellite, speck of dust and cosmic
sand

Over borders that divide the earthbound tribes
Through the dark Atlantic, over mounting stormy
crates
We will ride this thunder bird, silver shadows on
the earth
A thousand leagues away, our land of birth

To Albion's land, coming home when I see the
runway lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

To Albion's land, coming home when I see the
runway lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

Coming home, far away when I see the runway
lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

The clansman (live)
wake alone in the hills
with the wind in your face
it feels good to be proud
and be free and a race
that is part of a clan
and to live in highlands
and the air that you breathe
so pure and so clean

when alone on the hills
with the wind in your hair
with a longing to feel
just to be free

it is right to believe
in the need to be free
it’s a time when you die
and without asking why
can’t you see what they do
they are grinding us down
they are taking our land
that belongs to the clans

not alone with a dream
just a want to be free
with a need to belong
i am a clansman … freedom

it’s a time wrought with fear
it’s a land wrought with change
ancestors could hear
what is happening now
they would turn in their graves
they would all be ashamed
that the land of the free
has been written in chains

and i know what i want
when the timing is right
then i’ll take what is mine
i am the clansman

and i swear to defend
and we’ll fight to the end
and i swear that we’ll never
be taken alive
and i know that we’ll stand
and we’ll fight for our land
and i swear that my bairns
will be born free

and i know what i want
when the timing is right
then i’ll take what is mine
i am the clansman

no. no, we can’t let them take anymore
no we can’t let them take anymore
we’ve the land of the free…
freedom…

it is right to believe
in the need to be free
it’s a time when you die
and without asking why
t you see what they do
they are grinding us down
they are taking our land
that belongs to the clans

and i know what i want
when the timing is right
then i’ll take what is mine
i am the clansman

For the greater good of god
are you a man of peace
or a man of holy war
too many sides to you
don¿t know which anymore
so many full of life
but also filled with pain
don¿t know just how many
will live to breathe again

a life that¿s made to breath
destruction or defense
a mind that¿s vain corruption
bad or good intent
a wolf in sheep¿s clothing
or saintly or sinner
or some that would believe
a holy war winner

they fire off many shots
and many parting blows
there actions beyond a reasoning
only god would know
and as he lies in heaven
or it could be in hell
i feel he¿s somewhere here
or looking from below
but i don¿t know, i don¿t know

please tell me now what life is
please tell me now what love is
well tell me now what war is
again tell me what life is

more pain and misery in the history of mankind
sometime it seems more like
the blind leading the blind
it brings upon us more famine, death and war
you know religion has a lot to answer for

and as they search to find the bodies in the sand
they find its ashes that are
scattered across the land
and as the spirits seem to whistle on the wind
a shot is fired somewhere another war begins

and all because of it you¿d think
that we would learn
but still the body count the city fires burn
somewhere theres someone dying
in a foreign land
meanwhile the world is crying stupidity of man
tell me why, tell me why

please tell me now what life is
please tell me now what love is
well tell me now what ware is
again tell me what life is

please tell me now what life is
please tell me now what love is
well tell me now what war is
again tell me what life is

for the greater good of god (x 8)

please tell me now what life is
please tell me now what love is
well tell me now what war is
again tell me what life is

please tell me now what life is
please tell me now what love is
well tell me now what war is
again tell me what life is

for the greater good of god (x 8)

he gave his life for us he fell upon the cross
to die for all of those who never mourn him
it wasn¿t meant for us to feel the pain again
tell me why, tell me why

These colours don't run
it's the same in every country
when you say you're leaving
left behind the loved ones
waiting silent in the hall
where you're going lies adventure
others only dream of
red and green light this is real
and so you go to war

for the passion, for the glory
for the memories, for the money
you're a soldier, for your country
what's the difference, all the same

far away from the land of our birth
we fly a flag in some foreign earth
we sailed away like our fathers before
these colours don't run, from cold bloody war

there is no one that will save you
going down in flames
no surrender certain death you
look in the eye
on the shores of tyranny you
crashed a human wave
paying for my freedom with your
lonely unmarked graves

for the passion, for the glory
for the memories, for the money
you're a soldier, for your country
what's the difference, all the same

far away from the land of our birth
we fly a flag in some foreign earth
we sailed away like our fathers before
these colours don't run, from cold bloody war

Bring your daughter...to the slaughter
Honey its getting close to midnight
And all the myths are in town
True love and lipstick on your linen
Bite the pillow make no sound
If there's some living to be done
Before your life becomes your tomb
You'd better know that I'm the one
So unchain your back door invite me around

Honey its getting close to daybreadk
The sun is creeping in the sky
No patent remedies for heartache
Just empty words and humble pie

So get down on your kneees honey
Assume an attitude
You just pray that I'll be waiting
Cos you know I'm coming soon

So pick up your foolish pride,no going back
No where,no way,no place to hide

Bring your daughter,bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go,let her go,let her go

Afraid to shoot strangers
Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat from my brow
But it's not the fear 'cos I'd rather go now

Trying to visualize the horrors that will lay ahead
The desert sand mound a burial ground

When it comes to the time
Are we partners in crime?
When it comes to the time
We'll be ready to die

God let us go now and finish what's to be done
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy shall be done... on earth

Trying to justify to ourselves the reasons to go
Should we live and let live Forget or forgive

But how can we let them go on this way?
The reign of terror corruption must end
And we know deep down there's no other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers

Dance of death
let me tell you a story to chill the bones
about a things that i saw
one night wandering in the everglades
i'd one drink but no more

i was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight
gazing up at the stars
not aware of a presence so near to me
watching my every move

feeling scared and i fell to my knees
as something rushed me from the trees
took me to an unholy place
and that is where i fell from grace

then they summoned me over to join in with them
to the dance of the dead
in to the circle of fire i followed them
in to the middle i was led

as if time had stopped still i was numb with fear
but still i wanted to go
and the blaze of the fire did no hurt upon me
as i walked onto the coals

and i felt i was in a trance
and my spirit was lifted from me
and if only someone had the chance
to witness what happened to me

and i danced and i pranced and i sang with them
all had death in their eyes
lifeless figures they were undead all of them
they had ascended from hell

as i danced with the dead
my free spirit was laughing and howling down at me
below my undead body just danced the circle of dead

until the time came to reunite us both
my spirit came back down to me
i didn't know if i was alive or dead
as the others all joined in with me

by luck then a skirmish started
and took the attention away from me
when they took their gaze from me
was the moment that i fled

i ran like hell faster than the wind
but behind i did not glance
one thing that i did not dare
was to look just straight ahead

when you know that your time has come around
you know you'll be prepared for it
say your last goodbyes to everyone
drink and say a prayer for it

when you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed
and you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead
when you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed
and you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead

to this day i guess i'll never know
just why they let me go
but i'll never go dancing no more
'til i dance with the dead

When the wild wind blows
Have you heard what they said on the news
today?
Have you heard what is coming to us all?
That the world as we know, it will be coming to
an end
Have you heard, have you heard?

He sees them in the distance when the darkened
clouds roll
He could feel tension in the atmosphere
He would look in the mirror, see an old man now
Does it matter they survive somehow?

They said there's nothing can be done about the
situation
They said there's nothing you can do at all
To sit and wait around for something to occur
Did you know, did you know?

As he stares across the garden looking at the
meadows
Wonders if they'll ever grow again
The desperation of the situation getting graver
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

Have you seen what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what they said about us all?
Do you know what is happening to just every one
of us
Have you heard, have you heard?

There will be a catastrophe, the like we've
never seen
There will be something that will light the sky
That the world as we know it, it will never be
the same
Did you know, did you know?

He carries everything into the shelter, not a
fuss
Getting ready when the moment comes
He has enough supplies to last them for a year
or two
Good to have because you never know

They tell us nothing that we don't already know
about
They tell us nothing that is real at all
They only fill us with the stuff that they want
Did you know, did you know?

He's nearly finished with the preparations for
the day
He's getting tired, that'll do for now
They are preparing for the very worst to come
to them
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

He sees the picture on the wall
It's falling down, upside down
He sees a teardrop from his wife
Roll down her face, saying grace

Remember times they had
They flash right through his mind, left behind
Of a lifetime spent together
Long ago will be gone

They've been preparing for some weeks now
For when the crucial moment comes
To take their refuge in the shelter
Let them prepare for what will come

They make a tea and sit there waiting
They're in the shelter feeling snug
Not long to wait for absolution
Don't make a fuss, just sit and wait

Can't believe all the lying
All the screams are denying
That the moments of truth
Have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending
Have begun

Say a prayer when it's all over
Survivors unite, all as one
Got to try and help each other
Got the will to overcome

I can't believe all the lying
All the screens are denying
That the moments of truth
Have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending
Have begun

When they found them
Had their arms wrapped around each other
Their tins of poison laying
Nearby their clothes

The day they both mistook an earthquake
For the fallout
Just another
When the wild wind blows
