Requiem Lyrics
Downtown alleyways,
Where shattered men with broken dreams,
Live and die in torn brick buildings fade to black.
Where junkies' cries and pushers' lies,
Echo through the streets tonight.
Where the pimps and tricks decide the price of life

[Pre-chorus]
Oh, this is my world.
Apathy and madness are its requiem.

[Chorus]
Stand and shout!
For the passing of the world.
Stand and shout!
Its dying echoes call.
Stand and shout!
For a nation far from God.
Stand and shout!
Take a look at the writing on the wall.

Uptown midnight.
Plastic smiles on mannequins.
Play the circus of the world elite.
Where movie stars and kings and queens
Display themselves for magazines.
Where pomp and pretense hide the fear and pain.

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]

[Solo]

Sunday suburbs.
Great white building stands alone.
Dead asleep like those who dwell inside.
Bless me Lord, now I cry,
While outside, scores of beggars cry.
Empty words like epitaphs on tombs.

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]
