Song lyrics
All is quiet on New Year's Day,
A world in white gets underway,
And I want to be with you,
Be with you night and day.
Nothing changes on New Year's Day.
I will be with you again.
I will be with you again.

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white.
Arms entwined, the chosen few,
Newspapers say, it says it's true.
And we can break through,
though torn in two we can be one.
I will begin again, I will begin again.
Oh and maybe the time is right,
Oh maybe tonight.
I will be with you again.
I will be with you again.

And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we
wage.
Though I want to be with you,
To be with you night and day.
Nothing changes on New Year's day.

"And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we

4 words. Adam's forking bass line. Listen for it in this song...it's incredible. A really amazing song.
