Pain Of Salvation – Kingdom Of Loss lyrics

Someone sells us toys in a cheap cartoon
Someone sells us cars in the latest Bond that's coming soon
Someone sells us trends through a sitcom star
Someone sells herself in a docu-soap that goes too far

Life on sale!

"Could someone please just tell me what happened? I mean, first we paid for fast-food that will make us all fat and tired. So then we pay for elevators, so we won't have to climb the 3 stairs up to our apartments. Then we buy freaking stairmaster machines so we can burn away while watching someone make real food on TV. Now if that doesn't make us winners, I don't know what will. I bet we would hang ourselves if the world would just cut us a slack. And now you think maybe you should see a shrink, help (me) feel alive again, yeah, that's a plan! Just tell us who to pay."

Someone sells us man in a White House speech
Then woman tightly pressed between two bouncing breasts, on a Baywatch beach
Someone sells us us everywhere I turn
Then introducing them to earn stock-points on our concern

All for sale, all for sale
It's all for sale, all for sale

Welcome down to planet Earth
Please don't ask us what it's worth
You will notice that the world you found
Is slightly tattered and worn down

Someone sold us every stain
Now if you wish to complain
There's an open spot at 6 pm
It's when Caucasia is listening

If you're tearing down my world
Please just try to do it gently
If you're tearing down my world
Please just try to do it gently
There is love inside
For a dream that has to die

"See, it's really all about time and choice. The fast food saves us enough time to squeeze lunch in exactly when we want it. The elevators save us just a little more, the stairmaster let us choose exactly when to walk the stairs. Time is so important these days, it's becoming a fucking disease, and I guess in a way it is since it's bound to kill us all in the end.Now with all the time and money we stashed away on others' expenses, I can only assume that the tickets to hell are really expensive. For some reason, it's important to be first in line."

Someone sells us god in 2-for-1 with shame
Someone sells us war and the marketing, looks just the same
Someone sells us fear on tv each day
A shape for every taste; if the flavor's right, we gladly pay

All on sale, all on sale
We're all on sale, all on sale

Welcome to the only Earth
Please enjoy your only birth
You will learn to take more than you give
Buying scars you must live with
Someone sold us every scar
They somehow made us what we are
We all long that spot at 6 pm
But no one is really listening

No, no
Not anymore
We're all too busy buying s**, buying war
Buying self-confidence, security, insurance plans
Just buying forever

As you're tearing down our world
Please just try to do it gently
There's still love inside
As you're tearing down our world
Please just try to do it gently
There's still love inside
For the dream that has to die
