"Goliath" as written by Mark Hosking, Ian Kenny, Jonathan Stockman, Stephen Judd and Andrew / Goddard....

I want you
I've seen your ways
Show yourself
Better than what you make believe

All I hear
Is the sound of sleep
Comfort in the arms of sweet dreams

Now, this won't take long
We'll rise up again
And rewrite these wrongs

I won't do it
I've rushed you
Guarding the life that you deceived

I've crawled for you
Or so they say
We rise to it
Fall again into the same dream

You won't have to wait long
They'll show up again
Make way for the fall

Wake up
There's blood in your sweat when you wake up
Cower, bloodsucking liar
Who you gonna call when you wake up?

See now
What you gonna see when you wake up?
Beg, you little fucking liar
Your head on this chopping board

If this is entertaining
I hope you enjoy the view

Wide awake
And still asleep
I'm failing this riddle in my head, I
I'm failing to get it
Can you say?
Wide awake
And still asleep

Don't leave this too long
(It won't take long)
Tomorrow will come
(Hang around)
You won't have to wait long
(We'll rise up again)
It's your day in the sun

They've shown up again
They've shown up again
They've shown up again
They've shown up again

Please wake up!!
Please wake up!!

[Thanks to Troy Kirk for these lyrics]

    General CommentAfter Simple Boy discovers that he can leave his prison at any time, he starts to wake up.

    he then starts trying to wake up those around him. unfortunately, they're dependent on the system for safety, comfort, and their limited survival.

    When the keepers of the mental prison realize he's awake, they show up again. But now, their heads are on the chopping board due to the lies they've perpetuated.

    I get the feeling that Simple Boy realizes that he's in this alone by the end of the song, but continues further to his freedom. there are none so hopelessly enslaved as those who feel they are free.
