Ten - Goodnight Saigon Lyrics


I rest and pray, motors break the silence of another day
My heart and soul lie broken, separated by the pain
Out in the fields, scenes of rage and anger
Guide these fists of steel
It seems reality has died behind this genocide
One by one, even now they come like
They've always done
Counting the rotors, when ever dream
wakes with a scream, for now it's
Showtime, armed and ready
goodnight Saigon
stagefright, heart beating heavy
goodnight Saigon
The bullets fly, one inside a chamber
Somewhere bears my name
The needle lies to keep the things I can't explain away
The senseless kill, now the main attraction
On a shameless bill
The only sanctuary is death, it's all that left from me now
So I stare into deep despair and it's always there
This is a time bomb, this is no obscene,
I can't believe that now it's
Showtime, armed and ready
goodnight Saigon
stagefright, heart beating heavy
goodnight Saigon
Showtime, armed and ready
goodnight Saigon
stagefright, heart beating heavy
goodnight Saigon
