  • The night is falling, thank God
    I hear the calling of the skeletons under the sun
    The skeletons under the sun

    The day is dying, big smile
    Pose through the camera, a giant step for your kind
    One of a kind

    Don't leave just yet
    Quiet on the set
    Let's give this one more go
    Make ourselves ill, poppin' sugar pills
    Will swallow nice and slow

    Don't leave just yet
    We've just had a wreck
    I'll need your name and phone
    And water for these slow-dying trees
    Where gardens used to grow

    The sky is falling, straight down
    It's come to crush us and leave us in our blood to drown
    Barely making sound
    The streets are painted so still
    Can hear the breathing, the making sense of the spill
    Enough to make you wanna kill

    Don't leave just yet
    Quiet on the set
    Let's give this one more go
    And make ourselves ill poppin' sugar pills
    Will swallow nice and slow

    Don't leave just yet
    We've just had a wreck
    I'll need your name and phone
    And water for these slow-dying trees
    Where gardens used to grow

    Don't leave just yet
    Quiet on the set
    Let's give this one more go
    And make ourselves ill poppin' sugar pills
    Will swallow nice and slow

    Don't leave just yet
    We've just had a wreck
    I'll need your name and phone
    And water for these slow-dying trees
    Where gardens used to grow
