lyrics

Is this the real World?

Is this the real World?
Or is this just a Game?
This may be the final Call?
Or does it have a different Name?

Will we close our Eyes and lock our Door?
When the Shackadon goes to War
When they burn and rape and kill
And keep coming back for the Thrill

We can bring a Mountain to the Ground
We can chain the Sky and bring it down
We can paint the Sun and dry the Sea
But not the Ocean between you an me

When the Man in the Moon reaches out for you
When the Captain calls to man the Walls what will we do?

Do we face the Shackadon? Or do we run?
Is this a Test? Or is it just for fun?
Can we chase a new Frontier?
Or will we have to make it here?

When the Man in the Moon reaches out for you
When the Captain calls to man the Walls what will we do?

We can lock our Doors and close our Eyes
We can fortify our Homes with Lies
We can chase the Word of a Promised Land
Or choose to be the hired Hand

When the Man in the Moon reaches out for you
When the Captain calls to man the Walls what will we do?

We can bring a mountain to the Ground
We can chain the Sky and bring it down
We can paint the Sun and dry the Sea
But not the Ocean between you an me

When the Man in the Moon reaches out for you
When the Captain calls to man the Walls what will we do?
What will we do?
