This can't be the place
I've crawled 10,000 years
Past the tyrants, past the tanks
To a heaven brought to tears

The sky shakes in its skin
The sun too sick to shine
Like a pair of rotten twins
Please vacuum out my eyes

Yeah! See the jackals twist and moan
Yeah! Tell the jokes so tired and old
Yeah! To pale oblivion
Yeah! Raise a glass! Let's have a toast!

Run! Go back! Run!
Oh, beautiful world
You had your day
But that season's changed
As quick as it came

Welcome to the city of the wretched and plain
No one leaves, no one stays
Run, run, run to the place where you pray
This is Head Wound City, USA

Welcome to the kingdom of blasphemy
No one stays no one leaves
Run, baby, run to the place where you pray
This is Head Wound City, USA

Run! Go back! Run!
