lyrics

Endless night
Each time a star shines down to
Bring us light
We learn, we learn how deep the darkness
Try as I might
Can’t look to constellations to escape from here, no

So batten down the hatches, stifle all your yawns
No sleep until a new day dawns

Heroes fall
And then we learn they’re not such
Heroes at all
They fought, we fought, but who obeyed the
Master’s call?
One savior can’t defend our comfort from our doom, no

Those bastards run the board, we’re sacrificed like pawns
No sleep until a new day dawns

No sleep for the wicked
No sleep for the just
No sleep ‘til it’s over

Leaders rise
And all they represent is
Greed and lies
They take, they take, while we are starving
Money buys
Their military guard dogs and their manor homes
But no

They’ll wake to find our legions screaming on their lawns
No sleep until a new day dawns

No sleep for the wicked
No sleep for the just
No sleep ‘til it’s over
Though sleep we must
