  • Cotton mouth is bleeding, one way glass deceiving
    Dope me up on women and credit cards
    Promise X-Ray vision and fancy cars
    The tables set for the bourgeois
    Better get in line with your dinner tray
    Cause when it's all ran out and it's just you left
    With the nut job swigging his crystal meth
    And there's a constant ring of machinery
    Is there a place for me in history?

    Sending the boys away, leaving them out to play
    Throwing them miles away, now it's another day
    To shelter from the storm
    Sending the boys away, leaving them out to play
    Throwing them miles away, wishing for new years day
    To shelter from the storm

    Sons of time are rising, 16 minds exploding
    It's the 21st century ain't it cool?
    It's taught us how to eat and how to drool
    And the wind up merchants are out in force
    Telling you my brother to change your course
    And you won't be the first to think it's wrong
    When all you really want is to band a gong
    Cause it's all sawn up in our misery
    Is there a place for me in the history?

    Sending the boys away, leaving them out to play
    Throwing them miles away, now it's another day
    To shelter from the storm
    Sending the boys away, leaving them out to play
    Throwing them miles away, wishing for new years day
    To shelter from the storm

    We gotta break down the doors and shelter from the storm
    We gotta break down the doors and shelter from the storm
    We gotta break down the doors and shelter from the storm
    We gotta break down the doors and shelter from the storm

    Sending the boys away, leaving them out to play
    Throwing them miles away, now it's another day
    To shelter from the storm
    Sending the boys away, leaving them out to play
    Throwing them miles away, wishing for new years day
