lyrics

Last night I dreamed that I was
adrift in a poison sea
beneath the towers where the future flows in streams.

I had no memory of how I arrived
in this fateful place
where the walls were swept away in the waves, in the waves.

There were bodies on the shoreline
in the rays of the brightest sun
and there was a dose for everyone.

As the water rose around me
I could see there was no escape
and the only thing to do was wait.

And we wait.

Is it now too late? Too late.

I awoke in a world of nightmare
with the venom in my veins
among the hideous flowers of the human brain.

These are the urgent hours,
these are the only days
and the safest thing to do is wait.

And we wait, we always wait.

Is it now too late to change the course? Too late
