Gary Numan Exile Lyrics

Last updated:

I heard it in my sleep
A voice more dead than old
I thought I'd known the fear
But then it touched my soul and said:

"You will pray for me
Bow your head to me."

It came for me at night
And took me dream by dream
To where everything is dark
And no-one hears you scream
Took everything I loved
And turned love into pain
It said "I'm the prophecy
And I'll make you believe in me."

"Sacrifice for me
Be humility."

It said:
"I'll make everyone pay
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forget
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forgive
I'll make everyone pay."

"And so it comes to this
Death or eternity?
Or would you like to pay
For all humanity?
Do you believe in faith?
Than choose. Heaven or Hell or me?
A shadow on the sane
The final treachery of God."

"You will kneel for me
Lose your eyes for me."

"Betray the world for me
Burn your soul for me."

It said:
"I'll make everyone pay
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forget
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forgive
I'll make everyone pay."
