Somebody come and close my eyes for me Darken my glasses I don't want to see my people getting rolled under the planet Wake me up when it's over Just check under my boulder And tap me on the shoulder And tell me it's OK But not until the day When the bombs stop walking And the masks stop talking No, no, not until the day When the bombs stop walking And the masks stop talking 6 billion people here. Living in fear of a moron that's a mastermind And justice that is just as blind Drunk on power as the leader of the land of the free for all Close my eyes for me I don't want to see Close my eyes for me I don't want to see Close my eyes for me I don't want to see The world I love get an autopsy I check my watch and the hand of fate is pointing at the final hour The calendar date is much too late for salvation of my super power When the earth runs off the rails And the solar system fails And the point of no return impales the littlest fish and greatest whales Close my eyes for me.
