Where Has Everybody Gone?

Where has everybody gone?
I've got this feeling, God, am I here on my own?
Where's my support now, where's the ranks of the strong?
In this faceless crowd, where can I belong?

Everybody's gone insane to catch a plane to help the heavens closer, oh,
They want the kingdom but they don't want the king, they want his throne,
There's no time, there's no time at all.

Where has everybody gone?
With great pleasure I sing your national song,
Because your beautiful land will soon be long gone,
And the ashes of your memoirs will be strewn across the lawn.

Hack your face, save your case, reserve your plane in the everafter, oh,
Cause hallowed halls are lined with walls,
That are cracked with delirious laughter,
There's no time, there's no time at all.

Where has everybody gone?
There's no time, there's no time at all,
You won't survive and soon be long gone, Gone.

Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone,
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone.
