lyrics

When the watchers came to take you
it was twelve in the afternoon.
And all doors flew closed like gunfire
but our eyes, their spies, looked through.
Oh when the guards are restless
you would have done it too.
Throw them a bone that they'll leave you alone
for the same things
we all knew.

When they first came they took the paupers.
I remember, we showed off our jewels.
On the next day the foriegn beleivers
whose prayers only granted their ruin.
Oh but the watchers are hungry
starved of their need for a kill
and I'm going to hunt for a green feild
while the red light falls on you.

Called out from behind
run, don't walk, it's the frontline
but it's alright
Head up and you'll be
singled out for the next cleanup
but it's alright, it's alright.

When the call came in you're guilty
the sun gave up to the moon
and your trial set a new example
for those thinking they were immune.
Because the law is the law, and then who makes them all
but the gatekeepers, watchers and lords.
And the moods of men are storms yet again, and their fates
tie up your.

Called out from behind
run, don't walk, it's the frontline
but it's alright
Head up and you'll be
singled out for the next cleanup
but it's alright, it's alright.

My freind, I do still hold you
just on the edge of my heart.
You and I in a time long behind us
saw the mortar and bricks from the start.
Oh in the days no one talks of,
you said "well, we're us, and not them"
how could you not know how these patterns all go
when they start out just like they end.

Called out from behind
run, don't walk, it's the frontline
but it's alright
Head up and you'll be
singled out for the next cleanup
but it's alright, I'm, I'm alright.
