All they did was occupy their minds and pass the time and wait to die
They shrunk their gods to fit their needs and worshipped tiny idols
Then one night a signal came from the unknown
Electrified their heads and zapped their bones
And they were dancing in the streets
To ancient tribal rhythms
Stomping out the bodies of the fallen emperors

The Society for Moral Order came at them with bombs and mortar
Knife blade teeth and gun blasts in their eyes
The Diamond City shook
The adornments within
Quivered in the light of explosions

The Medicated Masses of the Radiated Nation
Citizens of the Civilization

We were all in paradise being feelers for the universe
With our heads full of blood, thoughts were in our fingertips
Motherboard will always love you
Deeper than the sky above you
Father told me not to go
Father never lied

Flat screen dream
Mind control
Digital bitches on patrol
All the creeps and the clones
Wire heads and weirdos
Thugs on drugs and robot love
Looking up the sky above
It's breaking up
It's bearing down on me
On me

The Medicated Masses of the Radiated Nation
Citizens of the Civilization

Lay your body on the pile
Look up to the sky for miles
Drop your penny in the well
Wish you never go to hell

Carve a diamond from the stone
Place it neatly on the throne
Light a match and watch it burn
Fall down slow into the earth

Heaven help us
It's our time to go
The sun is dancing over broken bones
The hunger has taken a hold of everything
And silent violence rushes through our veins
