Superstition taking all of us for a ride
Mimes overtaken by the signs of the Right
The bombs are falling overhead with no sight
While you were talking all detached, so tell us

Where you going, to the bottom
Do you hear us, we are rotting
We're going down in a spiral to the ground
No one, no one's gonna save us now!

Ceremonies have killed religions for they provide
The masked comforts to delusionals, they're all in fright
The true believer's head was bathed in sunlight
While you was walking all detached, so tell us

Where you going, to the bottom
Do you hear, us we are rotting?
We're going down in a spiral to the ground
No one, no one's gonna save us now, not even god!
No one saved us, no one's gonna save us

Where do you expect us to go when the bombs fall?
Where do you expect us to go when the bombs fall?
Where do you expect them to go when the bombs fall?
Where do you expect us to go when the bombs fall?

Superstitions taking all of us for a ride
Bombs are overtaken by the signs of the Right
The bombs are falling overhead with no sight
While you are talking all the detached, detached, detached
Detached, detached
Going down in a spiral to the ground
No one, no one's gonna save us now! (not even god!)
No one saved us, no one saved us
No one saved us, no one's gonna save us now
Where do you expect us to go when the bombs fall?
