orion
orion

as the rat snake slides we yell
not to dig thru the grasslands
we were warned by the legends not to hang
our feet off the wrong side
and every time they puncture her veins she screams
with a vengeance can you feel her fever?
that night she fell ill she sent the Scorpio
to sting all the sleepers
she placed them high up in the sky just to remind us
that she lost control

thru the canyons of the dead
ghostly whispers grew
and just beneath their watchful gaze
the wreckage had been done
and now they've come

hey high hope your feeling fine
never mind your ills
never mind your kills
hey high hope you found your ways
you forgot your laws
you forgot your cause

orion
orion

we called out the great father but he
never lifted a finger
he still owed a bunch of favors to all the little gods
that wanted it all
and that time had come we had enough of it
never sacrifice the young
we threw our bodies in the street feel the traffic
give them something to think about
and as our blood flows kindly like the river
cleaner clearer for all

thru the cannons of the dead
ghostly whispers grew
and just beneath the
the wreckage had been done
and now she comes

hey high hope your feeling fine
never mind your ills
never mind your kills
hey high hope you found your ways
you forgot your laws
you forgot your cause
hey high hope you realize
all your troubles knew
that your troubles grew
