In silence and darkness
We held each other near that night
We prayed it would last forever

Blood on the windows
Millions of ordinary people are there
They gaze at the scenery
They act as if it is perfectly clear
Take a look at the mountains
Take a look at the beautiful river of blood

The liquid surrounds me
I fight to rise from this river of hell
I stare round about me
Children are swimming
And playing with their boats
Their features are changing
Their bodies dissolve and I am alone

Now see what you've gone and done
Now see what you've gone and done

Now you never did see
Such a terrible thing
That was showed last night on the TV
Maybe if were lucky
They will show it again
Such a terrible thing to see

There's nothing you can do
When you're next in line
You've got to go domino

Now I'm one with the living
And I'm feeling just fine
I know what I must do
Play the game of happiness
And never let on
That it only lives in a song

There's nothing you can do
When you're next in line
You've got to go domino

Do you know what you have done
Do you know what you've begun

In silence and darkness
Hold each other near tonight
For will it last forever

There's nothing you can do
When you're next in line
You've got to go domino
