And we used to while the hours in constant praise
Of spirits so wild and strange
Now we're going through the motions day by day
And the West puts price tags on the things that once held glory
Teaching us the markings of the beast
Day by day by day in the mystical East

Our paradise is pockmarked now
With the refuse of the foreigners
Who taught us to place value in the meaningless
So is the doctrine of "Material West"
We bow to praise what should matter the least
Day by day by day in the mystical East

Tell me that our treasures shall never be plundered by thieves
I look into your eyes and see the soul of the mystical East

And a culture in transition
Gives way to decay and attrition
Where the powerful thrive by the power of the graft
And the angry Earth shudders to show her wrath
The skulls of ancestors agape at the atrocities they've seen
Day by day by day in this: my mythical East

Tell me that our treasures shall never be plundered by thieves
I look into your eyes and see the soul of the mystical East
