lyrics

And so the showtime is coming
A thousand colours held up in a line
Side-by-side to forget the one

The words they fade from his lonely tongue
From deep below he can hear their delight
It showers down to a hole where you can't tell day from night

Omelas
ah-ha

The city gates they don't go beyond
A little guilt keeps us strong
We're getting stronger

The sober times on their own
They can water their plants at home and dream
Ordinary and insane
Modern prize
Because I've been living inside and thinking about the hole again

Omelas
ah-ha

Out along wooden boards stretching onward
Clutching poles, the masses stepping forward
We'll march on our sunburnt shadows
Under waves of swirling wild flamingoes
Singing

Omelas
ah-ha

Streamers fall, the square left empty now
The people home, still banners on the ground
A sea of beads from rainbow dancers' gowns
Cut the feet of those who walk away

A ghost again
A ghost again
