You are the wine of intoxicating filth
You are the axis of time, I am so blind

Bear witness to freedom's fall
Tomorrow kiss goodbye a little more, as they watch us all
All play dead

I'll sleep in this quiet room where no one sees, I'll play dead
All play dead

Play dead never speak, just assign the blame
According to their game and chase them down the drain
All play dead

I'll sleep in this quiet room where no one sees, I'll play dead
I'll just sit here quietly and watch them feed, all play dead
All play dead

Bear witness to freedom's fall
Tomorrow kiss goodbye a little more, as they watch us all
All play dead

I'll sleep in this quiet room where no one sees, I'll play dead
I'll just sit here quietly and watch them feed, all play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead

    General CommentEvery day our hard-won freedom is being eroded by our rulers, yet in the western world few seem to be resisting. Warrel equates this with injured animals that pretend to be dead in the hope that their attacker will leave them alone.

    General CommentI agree with Nauseam....the whole DNB album IS inspired by his fiance disappearing to a cult....but not every song is exactly about that. Some are about the fucked up world that caused her to do something like that.....including our decietful government.

    General CommentConsidering this is on Dreaming Neon Black witch is about Dane losing his love, I'd say this song deals mainly with depression.
