Shock to the system
Shock to the freedom
Dreaming all the time; they be dreaming all the time
Shock to the politicians
Shock to the freedom whispers
Dreaming all the time; they be dreaming all the time
So, in answer to the prayer
The one you feel inside of you
This time you are so clear
Shock to the future
And they won't even go blind

The one you feel is there
(The order of the Sun).
And all the pieces fit together
Did it all begin with someone?
