Is everyone afraid? Is everyone ashamed? They're running towards their holes to find out Apocalyptic thieves Are lost amongst our dead A message to our friends, to get out There's wagers on this fear Oh, oh, so clear Depends on what you'll pay to hear They're bound to kill us all In white-washed halls The jackals lick their paws Please don't stop It's lonely at the top These lonely days Will they ever stop? This doomsday clock Tickin' in my heart, not broken I love life everyday, each and every way Kafka would be proud to find out I'm certain of the end; it's the means that has me spooked It takes an unknown truth to get out I guess that I'm born free, c'est la vi I was meant to beg from my knees Please, don't stop It's lonely at the top These lonely days Will they ever stop? This doomsday clock Tickin' in my heart These lonely days, will they ever stop? Gotta dig in Gas mask's on Wait in the sunshine overhead If this is living, sakes alive Well, then, we can't win, no one survives Is everyone afraid? You should be ashamed Apocalyptic screams mean nothing to the dead Kiss your little son to know all there is C'mon, last call! You should want it all! It's lonely at the top These lonely days, will they ever stop? This doomsday clock These lonely days, will they ever stop? It's tickin' in my heart Is everyone afraid?
