And now i wonder what's going on and
who's really in another world
while you're asleep the makeup you're wearing runs down your face like so many tears

Watch them piss away any hope for change any hope for anything new and
watch them burn it down turn the hoses on and announce a new beginning

Tonight we wave and give up a smile as
a flaming shuttle passes by
outside the window something is creeping
a burning skeleton beams with pride
step over bodies past corpses in waiting blank
it's just a human shell it's just a memory your indecision is a contribution to the cancer that infects the earth

That impassioned speech almost provides the heat to keep the people sleeping on the streets warm
out there in the cold in a burnt-out world

Tonight we'll drink champagne and dance until it's dawn
safe inside our fenced and guarded lawns
let it burn down tonight ignore the blackened skies pouring down a bloody red rain

Tour television's watching you watching a blank watching a slab or meat you're just a memory
it's burning down tonight for the rest of your life it's gonna be so cold it's gonna be so cold

It's always gonna be so cold
