With mouth that opens wide
They sit and watch me die
But we dance in perfect circles
And sing in perfect times

The sharpened lining in the sky
The skyline drips, and we watch them burn
The skyline drips, and we watch them burn
Never quite like these disappearing facts
The skyline drips, and we watch them burn
The skyline drips, and we watch them

Sing that no-one's watching
Sing that no-one's watching for us
Sing that no-one's watching
Will you make sure that I'm long gone?

It's going cold in the sunshine
It's going cold in the sunshine
It's going cold in the sunshine
It's going cold in the sunshine

We light the fires
And we burn the churches
And we drown the children
Bring down the caskets

And where were you when they nailed him to the cross?
And where were you when they nailed him to the cross?

God sent his son to save our lives, and he'll come shining bright
God sent his son to save our lives, and he'll come shining bright
God sent his son to save our lives, and he'll come shining bright
God sent his son to save our lives, and he'll come shining bright

And he is far from the truth but his angel is calling
far from the truth but his angel is calling
far from the truth but his angel is calling
And he is far from the truth but his angel is calling
far from the truth but his angel is calling
far from the truth but his angel is calling

And he is far from the truth but his angel is calling
far from the truth but his angel is calling
far from the truth but his angel is calling

With mouth that opens wide
They sit and watch me die
But we dance in perfect circles
And sing in perfect times

With mouth that opens wide
They sit and watch me die
But we dance in perfect circles
And sing in perfect times
