You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

The sign said "detour"
So I did
And I found myself in a wonderful place
Fields of green
When the wind blows cold
The kind of place one could grow old
Sky opened up (yeah)
Sun showered down (aww)
Onto a row of wooden pikes
What an awe inspiring sight

Birds shy on top of them
Puts your head in a beautiful state

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

Life is a horror show
And baby it will never stop
They tell me to watch my step
I answer back "You watch your mouth!"
So many stories you have told
You and stories have grown old
SOS who will save our ship?
SOS who gives a shit?
Sinking like a rock with a heart of coal
Sinking like a rock without a soul
Please note, don't underestimate
Cause I'm a cruel motherfucker

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

The new dawn starts this day
As strange and savage poetry make up your eulogy
Tables turned around and turned on you
No one sheds a tear
No one loses sleep
You disappear

We fall asleep
You disappear
We fall asleep
You disappear
We fall asleep
You disappear
We fall asleep
We fall...

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

You'll get yours when you're good and ready
You'll get yours and go straight to hell
And when that day comes
You can be good and sure
The day belongs to us

    General CommentAccording to drummer Pat, it's about animal abuse. Doing harm to one living creature is doing harm to all living creatures.

    Song MeaningThe band express himself on the topic of the song here : youtube.com/…

    It was supposed to be about animal rights and being vegetarian. It's also linked to the idea of karma. If you do bad things, you'll have to pay at the end.

    General CommentI don't know if this is what the song is actually about, but to me it's about the downfall of religion. It's about how people have been brainwashed by religion and so many bad things have happened in the name of religion for so long that people are getting sick of it and finally standing up. Religion is starting to be exposed for what it really is and people are all turning on religion and if religion was ever eliminated all together no one would care. I think A-F is urging people to abandon religion because it is all bullshit and live their lives to the fullest because its all they have

    Then again this song could be talking to the US government/ Bush/ignorant Americans. This would probably be more realistic and sticking to the topic of the CD.

    General CommentAfter reading the lyrics more I can definitely see that it might be about the downfall of America. However, you could interpret it as religion too (no offense to anyone I respect your beliefs)
