Ghost Nation

This song is by Gary Numan and appears on the album Savage (Songs from a Broken World) (2017).

We live in a windswept hell
Where dust and death are neighbors
We hide in a perfect storm
Not even God remembers

We run from the wars of man
From everything you are and will be
We are invisible
We are the dead ghost nation

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night rolls on
And we heard God laugh
When the righteous came
And they cleanse our sins
Have you ever seen death with your own eyes?

We live in the great unfound
Where thought and ghost still wonder
We drift on the drifting sand
Where horrors of the past still linger

We hide from the world of man
From the cruelty of that defines you
We are the wind and cries
We are the dead ghost nation

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night rolls on
And we heard God laugh
When the righteous came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen God with your own eyes?

We represent the fame
We are whispers in God's name
We are the heat that burns your skin
We're the cold that lets pain in
We're the wind that blinds your eyes
We're the machine that haunts your lies
We're the nightmare when you sleep
We're the guilt that old men... keep

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night rolls on
And we heard God laugh
When the righteous came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen death with your own eyes?
