lyrics

Eager Volunteers

I roam the streets, an outcast in my land
An alien man in my own town
Among a throng of eager volunteers
Who cast more shadow on the light

Weak-minded pawns, their armor made of coins,
The winner gets to skip the line
Who said this path leads upward to the sky
While one is falling straight to die?

No beam of sun nor sparkle in your eyes
I’m gonna set that train afire
You held me chained behind those prison bars
I rose my eyes over the wire

Speeding along across the shiny graves
With eyes wide shut you walk in line
Riding a train at headlong speed to hell
And still you dwell in dreams of a life divine

Boasting about fat wages and success
You claim to hold the key to some gold mine
How do you think your sickness shall be paid?
What good is faith if you trust in a lie?
