Gary Numan – Exile lyrics
I heard it in my sleep
A voice more dead than old
I thought Id known the fear
But then it touched my soul and said:

You will pray for me
Bow your head to me.

It came for me at night
And took me dream by dream
To where everything is dark
And no-one hears you scream
Took everything I loved
And turned love into pain
It said I'm the prophecy
And Ill make you believe in me.

Sacrifice for me
Be humility.

It said:
Ill make everyone pay
Ill make everyone pay
Some things you can't forget
Ill make everyone pay
Some things you can't forgive
Ill make everyone pay.

And so it comes to this
Death or eternity?
Or would you like to pay
For all humanity?
Do you believe in faith?
Than choose. Heaven or hell or me?
A shadow on the sane
The final treachery of god.

You will kneel for me
Lose your eyes for me.

Betray the world for me
Burn your soul for me.

It said:
Ill make everyone pay
Ill make everyone pay
Some things you can't forget
Ill make everyone pay
Some things you can't forgive
Ill make everyone pay.
