oh this age of equality,
happiness and wealth
when the insolence gives the orders
and profit dictates the terms
in headquarters and factory halls
we stand in line to feed the beast
the roaring beast of machinery
that's supposed to set us free

cover my eyes
shut out the image flow
cut out the sound
plug me out of the constant, relentless howl
get me out

oh these days of possibilities
knowledge and health
when mediocrity's a virtue
and blandness means the common taste
in classrooms and office halls
we stand in line struggling for a light
like swarming moths inside a lantern burning out
mistaken for the sun

cover my eyes
shut out the image flow
cut out the sound
plug me out of the constant, relentless howl
get me out

let me sleep here for a while
sleep beside you for a while
let me sleep

cover my eyes
let me sleep beside you for a while
cut out the sound
let me stay here with you for a while
cover my eyes
let me sleep beside you for a while
cut out the sound
plug me out of this constant howl
get me out
