Previous Song - DARE Fire Coming Out of a Monkey's Head Next Song - Don't Get Lost in Heaven


Once upon a time at the foot of a great mountain,
There was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived,
Their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world,
Obscured as it was by great clouds

Here they played out their peaceful lives,
Innocent of the litany of excess and violence
That was growing in the world below
To live in harmony
With the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough

Then one day Strangefolk arrived in the town
They came in camouflage
Hidden behind dark glasses
But no one noticed them: they only saw shadows.
You see, without the Truth of the Eyes
The Happyfolk were blind.

Falling out of aeroplanes and hiding out in holes
Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home
Jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head
Now everybody dancing the dance of the dead,
The dance of the dead,
The dance of the dead

In time, Strangefolk found their way into the higher reaches of the mountain,
And it was there that they found the caves of unimaginable Sincerity and Beauty.
By chance, they stumbled upon the Place Where All Good Souls Come to Rest.
The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves above all things,
And soon they began to mine the mountain
Its rich seam fueling the chaos of their own world
Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happyfolk slept restlessly
Their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain
Why was it bringing darkness into their lives?

And as the Strangefolk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain,
Holes began to appear
Bringing with them a cold and bitter wind
That chilled the very soul of the monkey

For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful
For they knew that soon the Monkey would soon stir from its deep sleep
And then came a sound
Distant first, it grew into castrophany so immense
It could be heard far away in space.

There were no screams
There was no time
The mountain called Monkey had spoken
There was only fire
And then, nothing

O little town in U.S.A
Your time has come to see
There's nothing you believe you want
But where were you when it all came down on me?
Did you call me now?
