tonight, tonight, tonight
I'm gonna stay awake
safe inside this trojan horse until day breaks
open it up, tear it up, fuck it up
in the streets runs a river knee deep
hidden in the blood of our own lies the alphabet of the free

as I walk through the valley
in the shadow of the dead
will you remember them?

Ce soir, ce soir, ce soir, je vais rester réveillé
there is no extinguishing the resistance you betray
the marquis, zapatista, white rose
can we see the end of a battle unheard?
for every name in history there are a thousand more interred

as I walk through the valley
in the shadow of the dead
will you remember them?

I can't believe my own eyes
I've seen this sight one thousand times

we will be sovereign in the water
in the shadow of the dead
still no one remembers them
we will be free in the cold of the shadow of the dead
oh, you will remember then

as I walk through the valley
in the shadow of the dead
will you remember them?
