When the rich die last
Like the rabbits
Running from a lucky past
Full of shadow cunning
And the world lights up
For the final day
We will all be poor
Having had our say

Put a blanket up on the window pane
When the baby cries lullaby again
As the light goes out on the final day
For the people who never had a say

There is so much noise
There is too much heat
And the living floor
Throws you off your feet
As the final day falls into the night
There is peace outside
In the narrow light

    General CommentNo comments, seriously? This song seems to be a haunting apocalyptic vision. The instrumentation is quiet, but still somewhat haunting as well.

    General CommentAlways makes me think of the "Protect and Survive" public information campaign.
