lyrics

The pillars looked beautiful at night,
and I saw, reaching for the sky, silhouetted trees and before the key, I used before I closed my eyes.
We were begged by children, maybe four or five.
And my mind was torn.
What is a man that raises his hand to a child?
Tell me what is a man that raises his hand?
We were told don't intervene or we would spend sometime taking lashings by the law.
They said "you're not in Kansas anymore".
But the child, he wasn't his.
I couldn't believe my eyes.
Something deep inside, in some sadistic corner of my mind.
'I hated the man in the shirt and tie'
In an ocean of violent endeavours I lost sight of the right way to react.
The weight of my thoughts kept me silent and still and I hate myself for that.
Give us a chance to make it right.
It's not out of our hands.
Give us a chance to make it right.
What is a man that raises his hand to a child?
What is a man that raises his hand to a fucking child?
We were told don't intervene or we would spend sometime taking lashings by the law.
They said "you're not in Kansas anymore".
But the child, he wasn't his.
And the man in the shirt and tie, believe, believe he took great delight.
And the man in the shirt and tie, he took great delight as he watched the crib capsize.
