lyrics

They’re paving over the last resort
with a substance never seen before
and there’s no more joy, no more pain
just cold, sterile happiness for every human brain.

There’s no more pain to medicate
and no victories to celebrate,
no wars to fight and no loss of life
just silent, lonely dying away in this paradise of light.

The neighborhoods where we used to roam
are buried in these glowing stones
on endless days where it never rains
and the money smiles at the blood washed down the drain,
at the life washed down the drain,
the life that slips away, always so suddenly,
too early or too late,
the last one slips away.
