So you think you can rule all the fools
Stayin' cool when the walls are coming down
Got the world on a string but your bird cannot sing
All these men in the factory lines
All the angels who fell from the skies
You try to say hello - but they say goodbye

We are just the silent masses
The things we do are out of fashion
And that Sunday clock keeps ticking out of time

When the time is near and you close your eyes
Fear is distant - and not to be found - you're bright as the sun
When the time is up and you leave in silence
You're flying in angels embrace - like a sound bursts thru space
That's how this story ends

So you think you've got so much to give
But the way you're controlled leaves you stiff
You're a tool of the trade 'til the day you die
All these men in the factory lines
All the angels who fell from the skies
You try to say hello - but they say goodbye

When the time is near and you close your eyes
Fear is distant - and not to be found - you're bright as the sun
When the time is up and you leave - in silence
You're flying in angels embrace - like a sound bursts thru space
That's how this story ends

So you think you can rule all the fools
Stayin' cool when the walls are coming down
All these men in the factory lines
All the angels who fell from the skies
