The sun is rising
To the sound of the birds call
But the city still sleeps
With one ear to the floor
I can hear the winds whisper
Through these empty streets
Making my body shiver
Down into my soul it creeps

And this all feels a bit crazy

Mother and father
Secure your children’s futures
Enslave your own lives
Let all your selfish hopes die
Tie down your dreams
Let them sink below
For you have another life now
Much more important than your own

And this all feels a bit crazy
All feels a bit crazy

The city is waking
To my angry beat
My tired heart is aking
For what lies beneath
The moon is falling
Falling through the ground
Under this cool earth
Its now sleeping sound

And this all feels a bit crazy
All feels a bit crazy
All feels a bit crazy
