Words down this crystal lane
Spread like long shadows through
One law friend to the rich
The next one no one knew
Hung for a sheep or lamb
Our hero knocks but once
One knock worth two pressed men
Our doors burst open then

Silent systems breaking down
Over the windows in my soul
We'll now betray this design
This old house and broken home
Silent systems breaking down
Silent systems breaking down

Mind your days in the sun
Secret until you're told
Silent in your consent
Gold in your chest this went
On horseback and hellbound
Son until he takes a wife
Our friend spun silver voice
Reflects upon his choice

Lost in the telling found
Inside the lion's den
Our hero in his church
Reflects upon his end
Kneel down upon this flame
But do not speak or follow
New logs but no new laws
Lost in this ancient cause

Silent systems breaking down
Arrow pare right on my soul
Share this certain favorite sign
And restore his rightful home
Silent systems breaking down
Silent systems breaking down
Silent systems breaking down
Silent systems breaking down

    General CommentThanks whoever posted this. I notice the lyrics of the B sides are not so available.

    Why the hell wasn't this on the album proper?
