lyrics

Listen my dear don't shed your tears like the rain o'er this new Netherlands
For tonight I'll dream of you here in my arms
On this island of godless men
Yeah tonight I'll dream of you here in my arms
On this island of godless men

I look to the sky for a trace of our Lord
To ask him "Oh where have you been?"
Which vice won't they try? Which lust won
t they dare
On this island of godless men
Yeah nothing is sacred and all is allowed
On this island of godless men

In the wild and dark when the fireflies arc
O'er this profane country of sin
Lights from taverns and bars
They blot out all the stars
All we hear are the jeers from within

One day seas will rise
One day fire will come
One day life will be at an end
And when that blessed day comes this land will be cleansed
This island of godless men
And when that great day comes I'll be standing alone
On this island of godless men
