To Dusty Death

lyrics

If the star falls tonight
Would anyone notice?
Would anyone care?
See smokestacks and drills
Those oiled, satanic mills
Everything seems to say
"When all you have is a hammer
everything looks like a nail"
Another nail in the coffin
Another nail to the wall
And by the coal and oil burnt
We hasten our fall


No one sees the elephant in the room.
No lions wake up after slumber
All our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death
Fiddling while Rome burns.
We crash before we turn.



Sunk in the Stygian seawater
The seawater of the Sound
Water, water everywhere
But not a drop to drink
Lost on the lone and level
The sands stretch far away
Buried in the vast expanse
Drowning in the waves
Someone help me, please
Or just bury me deep

No one sees the elephant in the room.
No lions wake up after slumber
All our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death
Fiddling while Rome burns.
We crash before we turn.

No one sees the elephant in the room.
No lions wake up after slumber
All our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death
Fiddling while Rome burns.
We crash before we turn.

All our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death
All our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death
All our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death
