Yes, so the message goes
Like an insect in its death-throes
A magic carpet ride to hell
Then back to here with time to tell

A metal scar on every face
We walk to a forbidden place
Where dirty water cleans the soul
We pour into another hole

Here comes a secret delivery
All aboard the reason why
A broken down discovery
The rules, the rules do not apply

I'm half blind and I'm losing
A picture that is out of control
I'm lying on the ground but I'm moving
A prison being built 'round my soul

Under a concrete sky
Barricades begin to rise
Sun and stars begin to fall
A sonic boom condemns us all

Decapitated soldiers fight
And ministers control the light
In leaking gas, we bathe our flesh
And in the air we fight for breath

Here comes a secret delivery
All aboard the reason why
A broken down discovery
The rules, the rules do not apply

I'm half blind and I'm losing
A picture that is out of control
I'm lying on the ground but I'm moving
A prison being built 'round my soul

Here comes a secret delivery
All aboard the reason why
A broken down discovery
The rules, the rules do not apply
The rules do not apply

I'm half blind and I'm losing
A picture that is out of control
I'm lying on the ground but I'm moving
A prison being built 'round my soul

I'm half blind and I'm losing
A picture that is out of control
I'm lying on the ground but I'm moving
A prison being built 'round my soul
