lyrics

Burn the cars. Hide the tracks.
The greater good. The greater good.
The lesser man would let us down.
The lesser man would let us down.
"For king and country", say it now.
Keep this in mind.

Mother, I feel like I'm dying.

My hands are cracked. My heart's a blur.
Fade to black and dream of her.
The weaker man he let us down.
The weaker man he let us down.
"Let freedom ring above the towns".
Keep this in mind.

Mother, I feel like I'm dying.

Deeper now, the light is gone.
Keep me in mind.
