Erasure – Chorus lyrics

Go ahead with your dreaming
For what it's worth
Or you'll be stricken bound
Kicking up dirt
For when it's dark
You never know what the night it may bring

Go ahead with your scheming
And shop at home
You'll find treasure
While cooking up bones
But the knife is sharp
You'd better watch that you don't cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Holy Moses our hearts are screaming
Souls are lifting only dreaming
We'll be waiting some are praying
For a time when no one's cheating

The sunlight rising over the horizon
Just a distant memory the dawn chorus
Birds singing bells ringing
In our hearts in our minds...

    The TRUE Royal SCP
    Its about the environment! More like pollution! Because of the lyrics "And they covered up the sun" and the lyrics mean pollution clouds covered up the sun so the birds migrated to a cooler place and the fishes were in the ice! So humans had no food to survive and no heat to warm up so they had to dig in there home for food and they are living in the dark! So humans brought up a system to stop it from going any further and started paying! Praying for a time when no one's cheating!
