Cold where your footsteps fall I am your echo and your shadow Here: left, right. Red cross, dead loass, second sight. Oh, I am waiting. Oh, I am listening. For slips of the tongue loose lips, sunk ships, power trips and oversights, oversights oversights. You're pale as a fish. As a shark your face buys silence, distance calculate what violence, violence will buy you. Bam. Another ace in your hand Bam. Another race to rail against Bam. Fear is a trading game. But which one of use doesnt need their name? Cos we are the men who wont be blamed we are the ranks whose game is is knives in the back, shots in the dark slight of the hand, cheap tricks, suck dick dont run, dont walk, dont stand single file green light, red square, no blood on your hands. Blood on your hands. You look so horrified. Your slights of tongue, done: legal tender, surrender your will to power, cower, kill, remember Your god forbid you'll be forgotten, short stick, free kicks, dead and rotten. Cos we are the men who wont be blamed we are the ranks whose game is is knives in the back, shots in the dark slight of the hand, cheap tricks, suck dick dont run, dont walk, dont stand single file green light, red square, no blood on your hands. Blood on your hands. You look so horrified.

Im gonna save your life Cos noone can do this alone and of all the two edged things were forced to hold this one wont make any sense unless you look at it wrong So Im gonna save your life while the darkness drags hard at your heels and if youre going to take this tiny heavy step now dont you dare look down and let the abyss grab ahold Cos Im gonna save your life All silence is heavy until someone speaks until someone attempts to name gravitys hold and your hands, they look tired and your palms cut and worn from the struggle to crawl up to stand up to fight for a single foothold So Im gonna save your life Im gonna take your hand and it shakes like a leaf, just like mine does, just like theirs do Ill ask you to shut your eyes to feel the touch of my skin on your own feel the warmth push through it I want you to hold it, feel it, breathe it see it, know it, be it, see it, beleive it Cos it will save your life

There was a way out. There was a way down That would have broken the fall. But it's easy to doubt that anyone else would know what would make sense of it all. And all the king's horses and all the king's men and no one can put us together. Together again. Concrete and steel; an appeal to history for a view to a kill. Metal eyes without minds will perpetuate fear they don't feel And all the king's horses and all the king's men and who's going to put us together? again. When it's "you" and not "we" when it's "they" and not "us": don't look down. Sharp swords, and pitchforks on the commons grand. You can silence and (?); you can pretend that you learned what it is to need Oh and there was a way out. There was a way down but some things crack and don't bleed. And all the king's horses and all the king's men and no one will put you together, together again.

She came down from the sky where the storm left her broken and opened, and bleeding for me and when god sends you gifts you must use them with pleasure and treasure what lands in your reach. --- When she woke under covers too cold to be hers she had eyes like two torches of fire and her nails and her teeth would have helped in her struggle if her wounds hadnt rendered her mine "You're no captive" I told her, and showed her the door which swung open as leaves blew in through cos when people believe it's their own path they've chosen they won't see their cage for the view Chorus: Oh but you know women these days are as fickle as they are immeasurable And a man is a man when his fate's in his hands and his grasp is as hard as it is invisible. --- So why do you ask if its greener outside when I've showed you the flowers through your window? and where is your thanks for the prommise i made to protect you from all that is cold a hard world? And she smiled, I beleive, as I combed out her hair, and I prayed that her thoughts would turn grateful then I wrang out her blood, so she'd know that she'd bled and be dead, if not thankful for rescue Chorus: Oh but you know women these days are as fickle as they are immeasurable And a man is a man when his fate's in his hands and his grasp is as hard as it is invisible. --- bridge: I've told you, we'll go, and tomorrow will come with tomorrows tomorrow in tow let it go, little girl there's a hole in the world that'll tear you apart if you go They'll you apart if you go. It'll you apart if you go. You'll tear me apart if you go.
