Keep on, keep on, whispering in the night
There's no problem if it's not in sight
In the face of annihilation
We still plan futures for the children
Keep on whispering in the night
People talk it's just "cocktail chatter"
What we say, anyway, doesn't really matter

Everybody, time is tight
We're Walking On The Edge
Of the long black night
From the left and from the right
They're Walking On The Edge
Of the long black night
And waiting on the big bang

Wake up, wake up, yes this is your life too
The light of spirit also burns in you
In the face of extermination
We still plan futures for the children
Get up, yes this is your life too
We talk and talk and shake our heads in wonder
Nothing that we can do
Can stop us from going under

Everybody, time is tight
We're Walking On The Edge
Of the long black night
From the left and from the right
They're Walking On The Edge
Of the long black night
And waiting on the big bang

I sit here and contemplate my future
And all the songs that we all sing
Don't really do a thing

Everybody, time is tight
We're Walking On The Edge
Of the long black night
From the left and from the right
They're Walking On The Edge
Of the long black night
And waiting on the big bang...
