The daylight fades and the stars come out
But there's never much to talk about
Another day goes rushing by
And here we are just wondering why

We have to belong
With a sense of purpose
That's all we need
Without them we're worthless

Ah, we've come so far but then again
All we see is more of the same
It's getting crowded here, we agree no doubt
Oh dear brother, what's it all about?

Hey you, over there
Why don't you throw down your spear?
We all need some help right now
Now where are we going from here?

Way things are working out
Won't be too long before we have to move
Better start thinking about it
While there's still time to choose

Every day of my life I discover
Someone murdering my sisters and brothers
In the name of some god or another
What do you know?

Every day of my life I discover
Someone murdering my sisters and brothers
In the name of some god or another

For the first precious few, it's time to go
What might have been, you'll never know
All those bad ideas became the law
Oh yes, we've forgotten what we're looking for

All of you angels, it's time to gather your wings
Leave it all behind, you won't need any of those things
We're going on through the darkness, hand in hand
To step into the future, before time began

And for those who remain with your chosen gods
May your prayers be answered
