There was nowhere to sleep, so he wandered the night
Saw the wreckage of life to which we've been led
And all of the factories that had ground to a halt
By the side of the ocean, boiling with blood

We're corpses in their loving hands
Sleepwalking through a nether land
And when we wake from dreams there will be nothing left
Are you satisfied in your cage
Feeling nothing, no love or hate or pain?
Will you settle for nothing?

There are those in our ranks who would lull us to sleep
As they wrap the whole planet in a skin of concrete
They are the wolves in shepherd's clothing
They sent your sons to the tomb, put a flag on the moon
The stakes are the very soul of humanity

When she drew back the shroud from the remains of our age
She fled through the streets gripped by hideous fear
Until she knelt at the foot of the sky where it touches the sand
In the twilight it felt like she was the last one alive
Choking on the ashes borne in on the wind


When our flesh fills the air and falls softly like snow
And a red cloud rises behind the earth
It blots out all the stars, and the sufferers below
That's the mere antechamber of their paradise
As we breathe in our death

We're corpses in their loving hands
Sleepwalking through a never never land
And when we wake from dreams there will be nothing fucking left
Are you comfortable in your cages?
Living out your very numbered days?
Don't settle for nothing-

Choose your heaven
