Nothing blooms
In a loveless room
You've got to want it
You've got to want it

Who's the fool
Where apathy rules?
You've got to want it
You've got to want it

If you don't want it
It remains the same
It's a heart of darkness
Naught wants to play that game
If there's no defiance
It remains insane
If it's all compliance
It's a runaway train

Nothing's so cruel
When malevolence rules
You've got to want it
You've got to want it

There is no defense
Against pointed arrogance
You've got to want it
You've got to want it

If you don't want it
It remains the same
It's a heart of darkness
Naught wants to play that game
If you need surprising
When you lose to shame
And the sun starts rising
Another day to tame

If your heart is aching
Just remove the shame
You've got to want it
Give your soul a shaking
And refuse the plain
You've got to want it

Who's the fool
Where apathy rules?
You've got to want it
You've got to want it

If you don't want it
It remains the same
It's heart of darkness
Naught wants to play that game
If there's no defiance
It remains insane
If it's all compliance
It's a runaway train

It's a runaway train
