I tumbled down a deep ravine Bottomless, or so it seemed Swam across the darkened air I didn’t care I floated to a sheltered cove Took a breath, and then I dove Trekking through the diamond stars Not very far...I crashed the car Not very far... Compulsion lights the way Compulsion drives the -- The voice rang out inside my head, Disembodied, dull and dead, An echo of a lesser place Without a face I twist and turn to prove I'm wrong But this martinet is just too strong There's nothing in a wanton town But talking down...embrace the frown We're talking down... Compulsion lights the way Compulsion drives the -- Compulsion lights the way Compulsion drives the --

Ah, burn the scenery down Make them all afraid The crackle of hot lights, hot lights, Hot lights, hot lights Shake down below, with everybody Please take it slow, not just anybody Can take the strain of admonition So hide below, where everybody Ah, underneath the ground No one makes a sound The patter of small feet, small feet, Small feet, small feet Shake down below, with everybody Please take it slow, not just anybody Can take the strain of admonition So hide below, where everybody Plastic red, Plastic red Shake down below, with everybody Please take it slow, not just anybody Can take the strain of admonition So hide below, where everybody goes

Hey god bone - fossilized into a stone Buried in the wooly earth Comfortable for what it's worth Speak thy name - punishment without the shame A tree, a limb, a twig - simple as a whirligig Aquinas says he knows Artemis draws her bow Aquinas says he knows An arrow flies away Proof's in the pudding pound - nose like a baying hound Children in his image made - certainty amidst the fade Chill the unwilling flesh - never let it know the crèche Words always stay the hand - buried in creator's land Aquinas says he knows Artemis draws her bow Aquinas says he knows An arrow flies away Hey God bone? Leave this fragile world alone Hey God bone? Just leave my fragile world alone

Bang! There's the starting gun Did you run, run, run, run, run? See! The world has passed you by Did you even try, try, try? Watch! As the bitter grows, From a seedling to a tree So, here's your epilogue Where the story ends, you're free Read us - read us - read us - read us - Read us - read us dry Born down -- got to make it work These sounds -- got to make them work Born down -- got to make it work These sounds -- got to make them work Hey! Were your friends all there? Did they pat you on the back? Sure, now here's your epilogue Just place it in the stack Read us - read us - read us - read us - Read us - read us dry Born down -- got to make it work These sounds -- got to make them work Born down -- got to make it work These sounds -- got to make them work

make a little light beneath the trees their trembling knees far from oversight teeth are gone so help the dawn to build the shining lines so vast, so vast we'll build the shining lines so vast, so vast there are many ways to make a home searching for a place we've never known there are many ways to make a home dreaming of a place we've never known

Paint the world with liquid gray, Drag us through another day Are we wrong? Are we wrong? Tell yourself we’re better off, Just ignore that nagging cough Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's make them pay Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's start today Water's up around your ears, Tell us all your darkest fears Are we wrong? Are we wrong? Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's make them pay Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's start today Sing for your king (can't hear you!)

Bright sunshine day Pulls me away Do we decide When we're alive? Warten sie hier Hilfe kommt Wir sin freunde Sie sind sicher Run, save yourself No one here dares help Strange how they see No life in me Warten sie hier Hilfe kommt Wir sin freunde Sie sind sicher Our dewclaws to the dawn Faces to the wind Stateless, sober, and stale Warten sie hier Hilfe kommt Wir sin freunde Sie sind sicher

Make a little room for the aged ones You can clearly see that they've come and gone Spare a tiny slice from your golden cake The dam is overflowing, and sure to break Say a soft prayer in the chilly bed Chained and humble 'fore men long dead Sentimental traces, real life debris Track me down, you can't catch me Occidental spaces, soft and round Put them through their paces, not profound The Trumpeters of Dawn on a verdant lawn Practicing the parts until their lip is gone Polishing the bars of the Pearly Gates Working off the clock 'neath the hands of fate Sentimental traces, real life debris Track me down, you can't catch me Occidental spaces, soft and round Put them through their paces, not profound Make a little room for the aged ones You can clearly see that they've come and gone Make a little room for the aged ones You can clearly see that they've come and gone

Oh, did you know, That everything works out best If you take it slow. And hey, can we say, that happiness Is only surely just a blink away. Seems right Seems right Seems right Seems right Hurry, gather 'round today's soft target Funny like a joke, a joke in sherbit Hurry, gather 'round today's soft target Funny like a life, a life in transit Clap both your hands, Buried up to our necks in the shifting sands. And hey, can we say, that happiness Is only surely just a blink away. Seems right Seems right Seems right Seems right Hurry, gather 'round today's soft target Funny like a joke, a joke in sherbit Hurry, gather 'round today's soft target Funny like a life, a life in transit Funny like a life, a life in transit

Aunt Magnesia Built a solid fence Bought a skinny rabbit Named him Seven Pence K.V.D.V Waving goodbye They're waving goodbye Waving goodbye They're waving goodbye Straight-back Alan Married to the land Ordered steak and whiskey Hid his withered hand K.V.D.V Waving goodbye They're waving goodbye Waving goodbye They're waving goodbye The plots are full up -- full up to the brim K.V.D.V

I dub this ride "too little, too late," A heap of ashes on a golden plate Come on brother, look at me now Gonna pop the cork for your final bow Pop that cork for your final chow... Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's make them pay Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's start today Service with a smile in the shadow of the Wall Pour yourself a drink, pour one for us all Pour yourself a drink, pour one for us all Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's make them pay Hey ho, let's drown the workers Hey ho, let's start today Sing for your king (One more time!)
