D A E A E A D E 2xIn Ddeath, you face Alife with a Echild and a Awife, who Esleep-walks through your Adreams into DwallEs. You're a Dsoldier of Amercy, you're Ecold and you Acurse, "Ehe who cannot be Atrusted must DfalEl." DLoneliAness, tenderEness, Dhigh socieAty, notorieEty. You Dfight for the Athrone and you Etravel aAlone UnDknown as you slowly Esink; and there's no time to AthinkAsus4. A
D A E A E A D EIn the DFederal ACity you been Eblown and shown Apity, in Esecret, for Apieces of DchanEge. The Dempress atAtracts you but opEpression disAtracts you, and it Emakes you feel Aviolent and DstranEge. DMemorAy, ecstasEy, DtyrannAy, hypocrisEy BeDtrayed by a Akiss on a Ecool night of Abliss In the Dvalley of the missing Elink, and you have no time to AthinkAsus4. A
D A E A E A D EDJudges will Ahaunt you, the country Epriestess will Awant you, her Eworst is Abetter than DbesEt. I've Dseen all these Adecoys through a Eset of deep Aturquoise eEyes, and I Afeel so DdepressEed. DChina Adoll, alcoEhol, DdualiAty, mortaliEty. DMercury Arules you and Edestiny Afools you Like the Dplague, with a dangerous Ewink, and there's no time to AthinkAsus4. A
D A E A E A D EYour conscience betrayed you when some tyrant waylaid you Where the lion lies down with the lamb. I'd have paid off the traitor and killed him much later But that's just the way that I am. Paradise, sacrifice, mortality, reality. But the magician is quicker and his game Is much thicker than blood and blacker than ink And there's no time to think. Anger and jealousy's all that he sells us, He's content when you're under his thumb. Madmen oppose him, but your kindness throws him To survive it you play deaf and dumb. Equality, liberty, humility, simplicity. You glance through the mirror and there's eyes staring clear At the back of your head as you drink And there's no time to think. Warlords of sorrow and queens of tomorrow Will offer their heads for a prayer. You can't find no salvation, you have no expectations Anytime, anyplace, anywhere. Mercury, gravity, nobility, humility. You know you can't keep her and the water gets deeper That is leading you onto the brink But there's no time to think. You've murdered your vanity, buried your sanity For pleasure you must now resist. Lovers obey you but they cannot sway you They're not even sure you exist. Socialism, hypnotism, patriotism, materialism. Fools making laws for the breaking of jaws And the sound of the keys as they clink But there's no time to think. The bridge that you travel on goes to the Babylon girl With the rose in her hair. Starlight in the East and you're finally released You're stranded but with nothing to share. Loyalty, unity, epitome, rigidity. You turn around for one real last glimpse of Camille 'Neath the moon shinin' bloody and pink And there's no time to think.
D A E A E A D EBullets can harm you and death can disarm you But no, you will not be deceived. Stripped of all virtue as you crawl through the dirt, You can give but you cannot receive. No Dtime to Achoose when the Etruth must Adie, No Dtime to Alose or Esay goodAbye, No Dtime to preApare for the Evictim that's Athere, No Dtime to suffer or Eblink, and no time to AthinkAsus4. A
