Raise your eyes and both fists to the sky
Shake and shout, and call them out
And take them by surprise
The secret's out, we'll hang them out to dry

Shadow shapes, a rabbit on the wall
Tried to run, it's in its blood
And the sleight of hand of God
The lights are out, you see it now it's gone

Are we a dream?
Your technicolor mind just playing back a scene
Of some forgotten time like snow upon the screen?
The dancing black and white patterns that you see
Flickering and beautiful are random just like you and me

Sing, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
Sing, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

Break your back, forgiveness don't come cheap
And every word will go unheard
Like you're spitting in the sea
And we don't need anybody's sympathy
The sun is out and no shadow of doubt is seen
