We took our seats
Ahead of the show

Confections and treats
All ready to go

It was a grand ole' sight
Parted curtains of white

A mesmeric scene
Projected on the screen

A proud man driven
In a black Cadillac
Cars at the front door
Cops at the back

He smiled with a wave
Of his generous hand
Thunder shook
Across the land

His head nodded forward
Then violently back

Crackend crack
Upon crackend crack

A crimson dream
Escaped from his scull

We all fell silent
We all felt numb

Curtain closed
The usher spake

No need for alarm
You shan't come to harm

He sprinkled his sleeping dust
Across our eyes
Fateful lullaby was our prize

Was our prize
Was our prize
Was our prize

While we were sleeping
It grew and grew
Tendrils creeping through and through
The blackness spreading
Here and there
Still we kept on sleeping
Without a care
Without a care
Without a care
Without a care

Twas a fresh bright day in Apple town

Towers of gray
Stood in the sun

A bolt struck fast from Jerusalem
Buildings shook, crumbled like ruins

A Rubicon of blood
Wormed its way

Throughout the night
Throughout the day

The town crier howled
It was the hordes

Heathen whores
Allah's Lords

Twas not polite
To disbelieve

Though something shook
Up his sleeve

The magician waits
Was a brilliant show

Now eyes are heavy
It's time to go.

Time to go.
Time to go.
Time to go.

While we were sleeping
It grew and grew
Tendrils creeping through and through
The blackness spreading
Here and there
Still we kept on sleeping
Without a care

Without a care
Without a care
Without a care

Without a care
Without a care
Without a care

Without a care
Without a care
Without a care

Without a care
Without a care
Without a care
