lyrics

Another day in the Grey Town
In the twilight rains
Impending Götterdämmerung
At the end of days

Wandering these mean streets
Nightfall is suspending
Retreat from this unhappy scene
Ride on to the higher plane

Another day
Another day
Another day slips into eternity

Webbed into our telescreens
For the Two Minutes Hate
Celebrity is the currency
As all the nations rage

Another day
Another day
Another day slips into eternity

Eternity
Dawn ready to break
Eternity
Songs aplenty to sing

If I could remember their singing
And write down the notes
No one who read that score
Would ever grow sick or old

Meantime back in the Grey Town
With all its ego trips
Pride and self-importance
Malice and pettiness

I awoke in a cold room
Hunched on the floor
Beside a black and empty grate
The clock striking three
And the siren howling overhead

Another day
Another day
Another day slips into eternity

Another soul ...
