lyrics

We could ride to a second sun
Or we could die
End it all when we've only just begun
We could try to seize the reins of fate
Or submit
To the will of the little gods we've made

Can't you see that the cup is empty
The barrel has run dry
But I know there's a land of plenty
Waiting in the sky

We could ride to a second sun
Or we could die
End it all when we've only just begun
Come the day that we transcend our flesh
No decay
No hallelujahs in the face of final death

We could stare into vast and empty space
With an eye to the future
Or we could live in an endless atrophy
Sun-scorched and barren

We could leave our fate in the hands of God
Bring on the boils and locusts, the raining blood
Let the first-born die
'cause there's a specter haunts the whole damn world
Yeah it haunts the dreams of every boy and girl
When you wake up sweatin' and a' shakin'
You'll see the seals are breakin', you'll see the seals are breakin', you'll say
We only want to get it on with the
Princes and whores of Babylon
You've got the number of the beast on your phone
And you been whisperin' sweet nothings to him
All night long
The rapture is coming, if you're ready or not
Whether it be by the hand of a man or a god
So come on, come on, come on
Put your spaceboots on

Can't you see that the cup is empty
The barrel has run dry
Nothing left here but greed and envy
And avaricious eyes

We could stare into vast and empty space
With an eye to the future
Or we could live in an endless atrophy
Sun-scorched and barren

We only want to get it on with the
Princes and whores of Babylon

about

Radar Angel Christchurch, New Zealand

Survived the great withering. Rediscovered the lost art of rock and roll in an old cardboard box in my grandpappy's bomb shelter. Toured the wastes with nothing but a scrap-steel guitar 'round my neck and the fire of vengeance in my heart.
