Lyrics
Crawling on all fours
On a sidewalk
I an unknown town
Try to get up
But you can?t
Weakness holds you down
Pretend to be looking for something
Lost in the ground

?cause people stare at you

This is a nightmare
This is a nightmare

Uniformed Children
Dancing around you
Stab on your hands
Cute little creatures
With the features
Of your best friends
They try to stem you
With marbles and chewing gum balls

You?re to weak to get out of there

This is a nightmare
This is a nightmare

Climb on the stairs
Of a house
That is rot by a storm
Higher higher
You?re tired
You crawl
like a weakend worm
there?s a raw on your ears
the voices appear
you are choking around
still creeping to nowhere

This is a nightmare

You rag yourself
From the resorted streets
Under a dusty Sun
Trying empty burrows, flats, stores
One by one
You're brothers, your friends,
All the others, where have they gone?
Is anybody there?

This is a nightmare
This is a nightmare
