Welcome to the Future

Welcome to the Future

Count the bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums

Don't fret precious I'm here
Step away from the window
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
    I won't let the boogeyman come
Counting bodies like sheep
    To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep
    To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind
    What other voices say
They don't care about you
    Like I do
    Like I do
Safe from pain
    and truth
    and choice
    and other poison devils
See ... they don't give a fuck about you
Like I do

Just ... stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Go back to sleep
Go     back   to    sleep

Lay your head down child
    I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
    To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep
    To the rhythm of the war drums

I'll be the one to protect you from
    Your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from
    A will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from
    Your enemies
    and your choices son
One and the same
I must isolate you
Isolate and
Save you from yourself

Swaying to the rhythm of the new world order and

Count the bodies like sheep
    To the rhythm of the war drum

The boogeymen are coming!
The boogeymen are coming!

Keep your head down, go to sleep
    To the rhythm of the war drums

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
Hold you and protect you from
    The other ones
    The evil ones
    Don't love you son
Go back to sleep.
