So, you're feeling unimportant
'Cause you've got nothing to say.
And your live is just a ramble,
No one understands you anyway.

Well, I've got a piece of news, son
That might make you change your mind.
Your life is historically meaningful
And spans a significant time.

Slumber will come soon
And you are helping put it to sleep.
Side by side we do our share,
Faithfully assuring that
Slumber will come soon.

Well, now do you feel a little better?
Lift up your head and walk away,
Knowing we're all in this together
For such a short time anyway.

There is just no time to parade around sulking,
I would rather laugh than cry.
The rich, the poor, the strong, the weak:
We share this place together
And we pitch in to help it die.

I'm not too good at giving morals
And I don't fear the consequence.
If life makes you scared and bitter,
At least it's not for very long.

Slumber will come soon
And you are helping put it to sleep.
Side by side we do our share,
Faithfully assuring that
Slumber will come soon. [4x]
