This is place is wasteland
Its written all over your face
The strip mall stretch out in to skyscrapers sprawled up into space

I've got to get out of here
Before it gets into us
I swear we can slip out the door
While there's life still to taste
Before the first light hits the steel eyes
We'll make our escape

Do you think you're the only one,
Starving for wonder?
'Cause you're not the only one,
Who's going under

We'll sneak through the streets
Cooly watching the ghostly unglow
There's no need for road signs
to read the map to follow

Straight into the darkness ahead
And into the silence
Where everything dissapears
And no one can ever find out

Empty faces
Another spaces close
Silent faces
Steal these wasted souls
Soon we'll be gone now
Soon we'll be gone now

This is place is a wasteland
It's written all over your face
Let's slip through the cracks in the floor now
There's no time to waste

I've got to out of here
Before it gets into us
I swear

    General CommentThis is place is wasteland
    Its written all over your face
    The strip malls stretch out to skyscrapers sprawled up into space

    I've got to get out of here
    Before it gets into us
    I swear we can slip out the door
    While there's life still to taste
    Before the first light hits the steel eyes
    We'll make our escape

    Do you think you're the only one,
    Starving for wonder?
    'Cause you're not the only one,
    Who's going under

    We'll sneak through the streets
    Coolly watching the ghost neon glow
    There's no need for road signs
    To read or a map to follow

    Straight into the darkness ahead
    And into the silence
    Where everything disappears
    And no one can ever find out

    Empty faces
    And other spaces close
    Silent faces
    Steal these wasted souls
    Soon we'll be gone now
    Soon we'll be gone now

    This is place is a wasteland
    It's written all over your face
    Let's slip through the cracks in the floor now
    There's no time to waste

    I've got to out of here
    Before it gets into us
    I swear
