It is an unfortunate fact that society can neither fill bellies nor heat homes with idealism alone.


Too many stars have gone out.

Clean off the bare shelves; your leaders fail.
Question the locked doors; young skin's too pale.
Blood rushes through you.
Blood rushin' through you.

Too many stars have gone out.
I can't control. I didn't cause. I can't cure it.

Filth for the cleaning; blot out the sun.
Ticket is shaking; this is the one.
Blood rushes through you.
Blood rushin' through you.
