I want to tell you this story
is the God's honest truth.
I want to tell you "Don't Worry"
But, the point is moot.

'Cause late last night
in the shadows of the garden.
In the cool dark corners
everybody's hidin'

'Cause the waters dryin' up
and there's nothing to eat.
Better pay close attention
get up on your feet.

'Cause the daisies are lyin'
to the trees
and the roses are lookin'
for blood to bleed
and the tulips are killin'
all the baby seed.

And the violets are dyin'
one by one
and everybody's sayin'
blame the sun.
There's a bad moon a-risin'
Oh, can't you see
Run, Baby, Run
Run from me.

(REPEAT last stanza)

Man in the silver mountain (Dio)
