Lyrics

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.
