lyrics

--flags are flying in the wind, grasshoppers and crows, and mountain li-ons.
scratch at the window, in a child's dream. the children are sleeping in a quiet room.

all these nightmares, from the world. do not enter this room, do not enter this room.
battle ships in the gloom, fight lost battles, in old movies.

--we chase streets cars, to horizons, grasshoppers and crows, and mountain lions.
gods and jihadists lost in school rooms. gods and jihadists lost in school rooms.

all these storms that make landslides. rivers and kings in paradise.
scratch at windows, in a child's dream.
but tell them please, don't enter, this room.

--children sleeping in a quiet room. dream that the world turns, around the moon.
and we chace streetcars of dsire. grasshoppers and crows, and mountain lions.
