Get up
The needle has pricked her little finger
She wants
The beautiful child the blood will bring her
You ask a question in the mirror
Alas, no answer could be clearer

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

Get up
A substitute heart has just reprieved you
Beware
For flattering ruses have deceived you
No kings of yesterday falling
But you'll come when destiny's calling

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

I don't want anything anyway
I was happy with what I had yesterday
Who wants the whole weight of the world
When it'll drag you down
Underground?

Today
She's singing a song called "Hallelujah"
You stay
She's bringing the poison apple to ya
Sun's up and reveille's playing
You know what everyone's saying:

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
(Borrowing time)

Get up
(Get up)
You're borrowing time
