The cows have all come home
the shape of things to come
the truth has not been told
because it don't hold.
The cows are making love
they'll leave when they are done
asleep and on the ground
without a sound

I want to wake up and never dream
I want to leave out the memory
left in the rain and it won't corrode
don't make me exit the afterglow

The sheep are styrofoam
they'll go where they are told
they eat what they are sold
because they don’t know

I want to wake up and never dream
I want to leave out the memory
left in the rain and it won't corrode
don't make me exit the afterglow

A human stampede

The cows have all gone home
their bones are made of stone
collectively or one, they will all run.
And we've been followed home
we go where we are told
we eat what we are sold
because we don't know

I want to wake up

    General CommentCan't believe no one has commented on this song. A lot of the lyrics on here are pretty intelligent and make this into an anti-conformist concept album.
    Fairly obvious though. Lots of anti-corporate, -mass-production and -post-war imagery, equating the masses to mindless herds of cows (not far off, if you think about it) and how we've allowed our environment to be effectively plasticized at the cost of losing what's really real.
