lyrics

We want a spiral staircase. Count the steps, divide by seventeen.
They want a spiral staircase. A gift from Moloch, man-machine.

Dive on the ground, don't turn around yet.

Smokestacks in Vietnam. Just concentrate on keeping calm.
Make sure you get along. Just concentrate on what went wrong.

Heat entropy, West Germany's won.

Think I'll go down to Alamogordo, I hear the weather's cloudless now.
Pyrite's put into the gatling gun and the clouds are in the land of the rising suns.
Gamma rays in ostinato. Deserted salt flats won't allow.
The salt flat's shrinking, the salt flat's crying. Deserted salt flats will see me now.

We were used to test on atomic bombs, we're just a family made of plastic but we have so much in store and we're done after this.

Summers don't last too long. Summer approaches strong.
August doesn't last too long. August gets along.

Heat entropy, West Germany's won.
