lyrics

They took me to a place
where the sky is brighter than anything
the water shone like fire
and the land was stronger than anything
the birds flew straight and gracefully
their tameness lacking nothing
and the minds of all the men
expected nothing less

They took me to a room
and showed me round its content
children and the young
playing feeling content
I spoke with each in turn
and messed up all the context
they all said the same
seeming calm

They'll hide it all away and pretend they're so much friendlier
before unveiling really
theres something slightly deadlier here
they'll leave us all behind
they'll waste us all away
but we'll still
dance the night away
dance us the night away

The knocking on the walls
is getting some more frantic
the carers and the kids
are losing the romance of it
the sky is all dried up
my mind is all tied up
I think I've had enough

Try to leave this place behind
and go somewhere much safer
discover that the pilots gone
and thought himself for greater
runaway and hide
swallow up your pride
take yourself for a ride

They'll hide it all away and pretend they're so much friendlier
before unveiling really
theres something slightly deadlier here
they'll leave us all behind
they'll waste us all away
but we'll still
dance the night away
dance us the night away

I don't want to go much further
I know where the monsters hide
I don't want to hide much longer
Let me back inside

They took me to a place
where the sky is brighter than anything
the water shone like fire
and the land was stronger than anything

They took me to a room
and showed me round its content
children and the young
playing feeling content

The knocking on the walls
is getting some more frantic
the carers and the kids
are losing the romance of it

Try to leave this place behind
and go somewhere much safer
discover that the pilots gone
and thought himself for greater


The knocking on the walls
is getting some more frantic
the carers and the kids
are losing the romance of it

Try to leave this place behind
and go somewhere much safer
discover that the pilots gone
and thought himself for greater
