In the days when children sung
In the heart claim shattered son
You were right in telling them
Where they were beneath the snow

Space call God right now
Let them be judged upon
What they've done to him, my son
In the snow before the sun

Please God, right now
Please God, right now

If they could only say all the things they saw would they?
They were only boys
With time I create
Invest investigate puzzle solved belated

If they could only say all the things they saw would they?
They were only boys
With time I create
Invest investigate puzzle solved belated

Which one killed my boy?
My question to incriminating convoy
I want death and blood for my son
We will curse that forms the sun

(Speak...)

Please God, right now
Please God, right now

If they could only say all the things they saw would they?
They were only boys
With time I create
Invest investigate puzzle solved belated

If they could only say all the things they saw would they?
They were only boys
With time I create
Invest investigate puzzle solved belated

If they could only say all the things they saw would they?
They were only boys
With time I create
Invest investigate puzzle solved belated

If they could only say all the things they saw would they?
They were only boys...

    General CommentA beautiful track... very lullaby-like with Claudio using his "baby" voice and the chorus "Please God right now" just amazing. I also love at the end when he comes in with his normal voice... such a nice contrast. I think the song is rather straightforward on meaning... It's Sir Arthur McCloud mourning the supposed "death" of his boys and wanting revenge on those responsible. AMAZING! Can;t wait for "My Brother's Blood Machine" to be released, which will be sometime in 2006.

    The PFI storyline will be loosely based on the Co&Ca one and you can check their myspace page for more details. =)

    General CommentOk this one clearly talks about the McCloud twins. But Im not sure who it is dies (or whatever) in the snow. 'Who watches the watchmen?' also mentions dying in the snow a few times, but Im not really sure who this is in reference to

    General CommentBack to the start(ish) of the story, Arthur McCloud is now alone since his wife is dead and his children ran away. Now he is following them (probably through tracks since it is snowing) He stumbles upon the graves of the McCloud boys at the place where long-arm and butchie bleam kidnapped them. Arthur is mouring their death and feels it is his fault because he was to slow in solving the puzzle as to where they were at eg"With time I create, Invest investigate puzzle solved belated" So now he wants revenge in the form of the blood of who killed his boys.

    General CommentI thought it was Mother McLoud (Martha) Finding her sons in the snow and her wanting God avenge her by killing Long-Arm and Butchie.

    General CommentI dont think it's Arthur McCloud telling this one because he dies in "Our darling daughter you are little Cecilia Marie".
    I think it's Martha McCloud finding out what happened to her sons and blaming herself for not solving the puzzle earlier (like stated above). She turns to god to avenge the murderers of her sons. This song is clearly about revenge.

    General CommentI agree that Martha, feeling a mothers instinct that her children were in trouble, finds the bodies of her sons, who died somehow along the way, but not in the Blood Machine. And she vows revenge but realizes that even if she finds out who did it, it won't bring her children back.
