The flickering TV reflects in the needle
Someone's little baby just overdosed
The highway patrol just killed a speeder
Who's responsible for all this grief?
Who puts the guns in the hands of the killers?
The cynic just reached another high!
Innocence lies slowly dying in a sad and lost America

When the light goes out we just can't help but falling
You see, we all dig the dirt and we all dig the moaning
When the light goes dim and all the bad keeps coming
We all can dig \familiar smells of thousand years of torment

We get intrigued by crime, 'cause death is mystifying
See, people dig their lives, but love the art of dying
And when the mercury falls I see the soldiers coming
It's just another move in a pointless game to justify the torment

When the light goes dim it strikes without warning
It's like a wave of anger and dispair, in spirit of the moment
A man without a name will never see the morning
A million died in Africa I fear and still the world was barely yawning

I really don't know where it's coming from
I thought you loved us, but I must be wrong
Just when I thought it's gonna work out fine
You send those nameless shivers down my spine

Just when I thought that all was nice and clean
You send those demons to distort my dreams
You send the bellydancers up from hell
There's something wicked but I just can't tell

Something lurking down in the deep
But love's last warrior has fallen asleep
Tiny ripples but they travel fast
A wall of mud will be king here ever after

Another triumph for the unexpected
All rhyme and reason disconnected
Love just drowned in the wishing well
Outside a dark and dirty hotel

Nameless bodies cover the ground
Somewhere in the distance there's a barking hellhound
Dripping oil from abandoned tankers
The smiling Goddess is cold and stiff

Another triumph for the unexpected
All rhyme and reason disconnected
Love just drowned in the wishing well
Outside a dark and dirty hotel
