This time it remains
Like a re-opened wound
You'd better cherish the pain
Or they'll take you away
And beyond the next fall
There's a much further drop
But you have to step on
There's no other way back

MANGLED, MUTED, DISTORTED GUITAR LEAD PART

No shelter is found
In the windswept decay
It's time to find a new cause
Because it's getting late
And the prophets have lied
These cruel virgin lands
Can only mutilate hope
And sacrifice everyone

You need to get
A little oxygen
But you're not good enough
To be allowed to breathe

You need to get a little oxygen (x a few)

GUITAR CUTS OUT FOR A FEW BARS, COMES BACK IN WITH MANGLED LEAD RIFF

The family's gone
They've been buried in haste
What can you do to survive
Among the living dead?

LEAD RIFF COMES IN AGAIN, BUT CLEARER

You need to get
A little oxygen
But you're not good enough
You're not allowed to breathe

You need to get a little oxygen (x a few)

And all you need now is a reason to breathe
(to end, gets slower and quieter until fade out)
