I don't worry about the afterlife (insert name here)'s my God and He is on my side Your false idols got nothing on mine You'll get what's coming to you in good time No explanation or facts are needed As long as I believe it, it's good enough And it's my right to strike you down Put your parents and children under ground Cause my God disapproves of your lifestyle And your false religion and your place of origin And that's why He asked me to intimidate you To harass and hate you, oppress and enslave you In his bloody name My place in heaven is guaranteed So says my trusted elder as he arms the bomb And it's my right to strike you down Put your parents and children under ground Cause my God disapproves of your lifestyle And your false religion and your place of origin And that's why He asked me to intimidate you To harass and hate you, oppress and enslave you In his bloody name

Puppets impeccably dressed, the majority blessed Assemble on the floor to wag their jaws and The ticker tape words issue from their mouths Transcribed verbatim from the company meetings There's money to be made! A simple mantra for simple minds There's money to be made! But there's never enough In the trough, never enough To slake an endless need Never enough in the trough, never enough To slake and endless greed Future's rosy, profits have never been higher Projections on the rise In the corner office things are looking bright But down at the bottom Mainstreet's burning Down at the bottom it's the same old shit Just a different day And the Final Notices piled up on the table And posted on the door It's never enough In the trough, never enough To slake an endless need Never enough in the trough, never enough To slake and endless greed Never enough

Old friend you see the end is nigh I'll give it to you straight, shall I? Your footloose days are done Nowhere left to run Run, run, nowhere to run These people here on you depend Obligations never end Bills to pay, beans to count Hurry up! Settle down! Down, down, just settle down But the road beckons you on Open like a song The promise of a new day around the bend It twists you up inside, to forever bide While the melody plays inside your head And it will until the end Until the end These routines become the norm Calm seas replace the storm Your sturm and drang give way To the everyday Hey hey an honest day Well you can't say you were misinformed Well you can't say you were led astray when You end up standing right at your front door But the road beckons you on Open like a song The promise of a new day around the bend It twists you up inside, to forever bide While the melody plays inside your head And it will until the end Until the end

Oh I won't go out with a whisper Oh I'll go out with a city block And I'll write my name in flames against the darkness Oh another cipher with a pistol Oh trying to make his minus a plus Trying to write his name in flames against the darkness Trying to write his name in flames against the darkness Bye bye so long catch you later catch you later Bye bye so long see you 'round next time I killed my gods to watch them die Stillborn in my prime My garden withered on the vine Parched and full of blight Oh in my prime Oh I was hated and not known Oh I was crowded and all alone Trying to write my name in flames against the darkness Trying to write my name in flames against the darkness Bye bye so long catch you later catch you later Bye bye so long see you 'round next time I killed my gods to watch them die Stillborn in my prime My garden withered on the vine Parched and full of blight Oh in my prime

There is a long long long long time to say goodbye From the moment of your first fiery inhalation 'til you arrive At the edge of all knowing and the other side There is no no no no telling what awaits you there So pass the bottle round let the stars rotate in the heavens While the weather's fair And when your body fails you I'll be waiting Waiting at the stairs At the stairs I'll meet you there Though I've loved these things in my heart Though I'm loathe to depart This is goodbye
