May I have a word with you, Lord?
Our homes have been taken and burned,
And the ashes are falling like snow.

I followed a yellow-brick road,
Took me every direction but home.
What we are, what we were is no more.

So we went for the sky,
Said goodbye to the world,
With absolutely no desire to return.

May I have a word with you, world?
Humanity's shaken and stirred
By the violent and the absurd.

I cannot believe my own eyes,
Watching fascism spread like a wild-fire,
I present the American empire.

So we went for the sky,
Said goodbye to the world,
With absolutely no sense of order.

So we went for the sky,
Said ten-billion goodbyes.
With out heads in the clouds
Got it all figured out.

So we wandered so much further
Than the map could even picture.
And they'll follow,
They'll be armed with their slogans
And their bullets.
