You know those days when you don't feel good
And everything looks so sad
When you get up from your bed
It's in your left foot not knowing what to do with your life
So you turn on the radio looking for music
But you can only hear waste, waste, only waste

Then you return to bed
And decide to pay a visit for the places you've never seen before
And so you walk, you walk
So you walk and walk, and walk, and walk

When you look around you in the place
You've never seen before, before, before, before
Hearing the sound, sound, sound
Who makes you think you are in heaven

And so you ask, ask, ask
I answer, brothers
And so you ask, ask me
What does it mean?

Don't you know this is like a flame my brother
Don't you know this is the music of the hour
Don't you know this is like a flame my brother
Don't you know this is the music of the hour

You know those days when you don't feel good
And everything looks so sad
When you get up from your bed
It's in your left foot not knowing what to do with your life
So you turn on the radio looking for music
But you can only hear waste, waste, only waste

Then you return to bed
And decide to pay a visit for the places you've never seen before
And so you walk, you walk
So you walk and walk, and walk, and walk

When you look around you in the place
You've never seen before, before, before, before
Hearing the sound, sound, sound
Who makes you think you are in heaven

And so you ask, ask, ask
I answer, brothers
And so you ask, ask, ask
I answer, brothers

And so you ask, ask me
What is this?

Don't you know this is like a flame my brother
Don't you know this is the music of the hour
Don't you know this is like a flame my brother
Don't you know this is the music of the hour

Don't you know this is like a flame my brother
Don't you know this is the music of the hour
Don't you know this is like a flame my brother
Don't you know this is the music of the hour

What is this? We are in Heaven
