Someone left the door unlocked
Now all the wolves are getting in, getting in
Someone left the window open
All the vultures are circling, circling

Better to wake the dead
Than to stir the living
A new day
I will see all this pass into a new day

We recommend never more than once
So as to preserve memory
Never more than once
So as to appear ordinary
So as to instill calm
We recommend a mask-like appearance

I hear the scavengers
Or was I dashed upon the rocks
It all went blue, it all went blue

If you can’t sleep at night, we recommend that you turn on the television
There’s a man outside, he calls himself the Witchfinder General
He can put you to sleep with his sleight of hand
Sleight of hand, sleight of hand
He speaks to us like no other
And the walls come crashing, the walls come crashing down
But I will not go with fear in my heart
Despite the constant whimpering
In these days of broken men

And in between the familiar sounds
Resides the glowing electric womb
We could not get away
And when we woke up
All was still and strangely awake

I hear the scavengers
Or was I dashed upon the rocks
It all went blue

We have found you to be obsolete
We have done away with childish things
You must remember
We have given up
And so will you
We have done away with childish things

We have found you
Obsolete
Insignificant
We have done away with childish things

I watched as you spun your web
You spoke with grace and bitterness
That was what gave you away
I watched as you spun your web
I could not get you
Your impression out of my eyes
I watched as you spun your web
I could not taste the bitterness
And though you go on and on
I hear the world tell me you’re just a voice inside my head

But we
We will not go away
We will not be afraid
We will not go away
Though you recommend
That we go back to sleep
We’ll wait for you to pass away
I think I’ll lay here awhile
And listen to the voice inside my head

But in between the hypnotic sounds
We escaped the infected womb
We thought we found a way
But when we woke up
They had given the enemy a new face

I see a light off in the distance
But I will find you with or without it.
