Sweet dreams all met with derision
This train, it was armed for collision
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame

Clap your hands in the sparkle and glitter
Shake your heads at the twisted and bitter
Oh they don't know how lucky they are

Foot down for the alienation
Look on as your love, its gets lost in translation
To a language that nobody understands

There are smiles as they erode and corrupt you
Of the great expectations you could never live up to
We are lost, we are lost, we are lost

Get your coat 'cos the righteous are leaving
'Cos they can't work out what the hell to believe in
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame

No abandon, no heartfelt desire
No love could be worth getting fired
For real, it's surreal, it's so real

So paint over the cracks and then cover
What you thought was the worst ever pain with another
And the first one, it always comes free

How they love you so cold and so vicious
With friends like these, well who needs politicians
The first one, its always comes free
They tell you heroin takes like ice cream

The clever men know all that and all this
And they will talk and they talk and the don't fucking listen
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame

Well, it's no life but God, it's a living
Come on Jesus Christ, come back all is forgiven
We are lost, we are lost, we are lost

And have no fear of the state of the nation
Let the facts have no bearing on public relations
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame

What a model of Christian behavior
Preach on with the message of, go fuck thy neighbor
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
It's a shame, it's a shame

Watch your step by the crowd of fanatics
While they kill in the name of applied mathematics
And you, you hate the system even though you invented it
And go kill your brothers and claim self defense of it

Picking up all the secrets and the tricks to being
One of the guys whom the shit never sticks to
Take you seats for the final calamity

Don't you look serious, hell, what can the matter be?
Another day and the rot is getting faster
Well, all the machines started killing the master

It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
It's a, it's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
It's a
