Tell you it's a god send
These pleasure painted walls you're kept in
You better wake up wake up (hey)
There's things you need to know

Tell you that your mind's made
So go on and be safe
You better wake up wake up (hey)
There's things you need to know

But don't let on yet (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
Cast off the fallen (we are the foolish) (don't let on)

Although these eyes are wide
They're not awake
And though these hands aren't tied
The just can't take what's thrown about
What's thrown around this place

Tell you it's a god send
These pleasure painted walls you're kept in
You better wake up wake up
There's things you need to know

But don't let on yet (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
Cast off the fallen (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
The things that are only in your mind they're holding me down (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
But I don't want to talk about it

Let's get a rise
Let's start complaining cause it's taking miles
And it's taking over taking over
They're too old and far too cunning but the young are bold
It's all they got it's all they got
Now wait around and hold back moving cause they all know the're trapped regardless
And they'll get told and we'll get told and hey'sll get told and you'll get told

Don't let go yet (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
Cast off the fallen (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
The things that are holding you down they're holding me down (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
But I don't want to talk about it

    General CommentAs far as I know, "godsend" should be one word. Also, before "don't let on" there should be "but" which is important to the tone/meaning of the lyric line. Otherwise I don't really have a clue what this song is about. I like the chorus riff and the lyrics are a little intriguing, but I normally visit this site to find out what a song is about. No help yet!

    Lyric CorrectionTell you it's a god send
    These pleasure painted walls you're kept in
    You better wake up wake up
    There's things you need to know

    Tell you that your mind's made
    So go on and be safe
    You better wake up wake up
    There's things you need to know

    Don't let go yet (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    Cast off the fallen (we are the foolish) (don't let on)

    Although these eyes are wide
    They're not awake
    And though these hands aren't tied
    The just can't take what's thrown about
    What's thrown about this place

    Tell you it's a god send
    These pleasure painted walls you're kept in
    You better wake up wake up
    There's things you need to know

    Don't let go yet (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    Cast off the fallen (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    The things that are holding you down they're holding me down (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    But I don't want to talk about it

    Let's get a rise
    Let's start complaining cause it's taking miles
    And it's taking over taking over
    They're too old and far too cunning but the young are bold
    It's all they got it's all they got
    Now wait around and hold back moving cause they all know the're trapped regardless
    And they'll get told and we'll get told and hey'sll get told and you'll get told

    Don't let go yet (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    Cast off the fallen (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    The things that are holding you down they're holding me down (we are the foolish) (don't let on)
    But I don't want to talk about it
