  • Everybody take your sledges
    Winterland Plutocracy
    Down the slope don't fear the hedges

    Everybody in their box
    Waiting under rights of action
    Raise your heads and hold your breath
    I can't stand your putrefaction

    I can smell your brain decay
    As you look down at the stage and
    Drive me mad and then insane
    Welcome to the show

    You've been waiting for the one
    To bring you joy and ecstasy
    And you've been waiting for a song
    And you demand to feel the tragedy

    But when it's right out of control
    And it's not your song anymore
    And you are ready to forget
    The truth that you'd been asking for

    I'm not afraid to sacrifice
    And I don't care bout your advice
    As I spread my wings and fly

    No love - it's pain you've come to feed
    In mental strain I crawl and bleed
    You make me please

    Forever roaming
    You will hear it scream
    The cries of Speedhoven
    Forever roaming
    Every starless night
    You will hear the cries

    You'll never get:
    I'll never be the one that you want me to be
    And all the treasures that you hold
    All your diamond rings and gold
    All your flake and look and tongue
    I have tried and it was wrong

    You tried to push me up a notch
    But all I made was an itchy crotch
    Fornication, ass galore
    I wanted love and I want more
    Muckrakers waiting for the prey
    Muckrakers want me to obey
    But you will never own me
    Though you pay

    This opera is haunted they will say
    That's where they've driven the light insane

    Forever roaming
    You will hear it scream
    The cries of Speedhoven
    Forever roaming
    Every starless night
    You will hear the cries
    Forever roaming
    You will hear it scream
    The cries of Speedhoven
    Forever you'll hear it scream

    In a cold winter night I had a vision
    Taking me by my hand
    Leading me to the door
    To rescue me from the wastelands

    The glance of the shining ivories
    A world that they can't understand
    Out of sound, out of reason
    The voice of their laughter was gone

    Taken away, time for a change
    I'm walking over
    Flying away, flying away
    Dying into another world
    Pure and divine
    And the laughter dies

    Welcome to this wonderworld
    Everybody take your sledges
    Winterland Plutocracy
    Down the slope don't fear the hedges

    Forever roaming
    You will hear it scream
    The cries of Speedhoven
    Forever roaming...
