Lyrics

  • IN FROM THE COLD, STRAIGHT UNDER A LAMP THAT IS BURNING
  • THEY PEEP ’NEATH YOUR SOUL AND ALL THE SECRET’S YOU’RE HOLDING
  • YOU STEP BACK IN TIME, A MACHINE FOR A MIND THAT IS FROZEN
  • LOOSEN YOUR MIND, AND SLOWLY THE STORY IS UNFOLDING
  • THEY KEPT YOU ON ICE AND NOW YOU’RE MIND IS EXPLODING
  • FOR THIS IS THE LIFE ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE THAT IS TURNING
  • PERMANENT NIGHT, THEY CHECK-IN, YOUR LOYALTY IS HOLDING
  • THE DISC ON THE FLOOR, FROM THE MIND THAT IS FROZEN
  • THEY LOOK FOR A MOLE, CHECK INTO YOUR SOUL AND IT’S TURNING
  • THEN IT’S ALL OVER, YOU’RE HOLLOWED AND BROKEN, DECODED
  • THEY’VE WATCHED YOU, THEY’VE GOT YOU NOW
  • THEY’RE SHOWING PICTURES ON A SCREEN
  • TIMES, DATES AND PLACES WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN
  • THEIR ROAD, HELSINKI AND SAIGON
  • YOU’VE TRACED THEIR GOLD SEAM TO HONG KONG
  • X MEETS Y IN THE MARKET PLACE
  • SELL SECRETS AT THE LOWEST PRICE
  • EYE TO EYE, COMBINATION BRIEFCASE
  • A CHILDISH GAME “MARK THEM FULL OF SHOELACE”
  • HAWKER CITY, CAT AND MOUSE, CHILD’S CASE
  • THEY’VE GOT YOU
  • THEY’VE GOT YOU NOW
  • THEY’VE WATCHED YOU NOW
  • THEY’VE GOT YOU NOW
