    Lyrics

    Wake up you sleepy head
    Put on some clothes, shake up your bed
    Put another log on the fire for me
    I've made some breakfast and coffee
    I look out my window and what do I see
    A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me
    All the nightmares came today
    And it looks as though they're here to stay

    What are we coming to
    No room for me, no fun for you
    I think about a world to come
    Where the books were found by the Golden Ones
    Written in pain, written in awe
    By a puzzled man who questioned
    What we were here for
    All the strangers came today
    And it looks as though they're here to stay

    Oh, you pretty things (oh, you pretty things)
    Don't you know you're driving your
    Mothers and fathers insane
    Oh, you pretty things (oh, you pretty things)
    Don't you know you're driving your
    Mothers and fathers insane
    Let me make it plain
    You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

    Look out at your children
    See their faces in golden rays
    Don't kid yourself they belong to you
    They're the start of the coming race
    The earth is a bitch
    We've finished our news
    Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
    All the strangers came today
    And it looks as though they're here to stay

    Oh, you pretty things (oh, you pretty things)
    Don't you know you're driving your
    Mothers and fathers insane
    Oh, you pretty things (oh, you pretty things)
    Don't you know you're driving your
    Mothers and fathers insane
    Let me make it plain
    You gotta make way for the Homo Superior
