lyrics

We build probing lights, that can swallow up time.
Kid you're better off in the day.
Penetrating eyes, will make you do as you are told.
Kid get on your bike and get away.
They may remember you in the haze.

We say might is right, we'll kill all who disagree
save your glory for the country.
We say shut your eyes, better in than out
when were talking about safety.
Don't let em in, don't fucking let 'em in!!

Lost in the millions of cold dead eyes,
feeling like a portrait of somebody else's life.
So raise your hand of god and proclaim out loud, that

I AM NOT WELL DON'T TELL ME I SHOULD BE PROUD!

You'll never go home again.

What ch'you waiting for, what ch'you waiting for,
you've got two lives up ahead.
Forked at the entrance, you must decide
between happiness and self respect.
Curse the creators who give you the mud
you sift through day after day.
Curse the ones who give you pleasure,
the ones who give you pain.

You'll never go home again.
