Touching your skin,
Is a victory,
A revolution,
of hearts and minds.
When does a movement become a regime?
When your spies with the smiling guys call in the secret police.
Call in the secret police.

What happened to the vision we had,
this silence is a strangled cry (call in the secret police).
The freedom to say whatever we like,
replaced with a recital of lines.

When the rot sets in,
misdressed in suspicion,
and to caress now a strange hand in the night,
the manifesto we prize,
with secrets and lies,
a state of fear,
a cold war.
Call in the secret police.

What happened to the vision we had,
this silence is a strangled cry (call in the secret police).
The freedom to say whatever we like,
replaced with a recital of lines.

What happened to the vision we had,
this silence is a strangled cry (call in the secret police).
The freedom to say whatever we like,
replaced with a recital of lines.

Don't make me disappear I have not told the line,
Don't make me disappear I have not told the line, (disappear, disappear)
Don't make me disappear I have not told the line, (disappear, disappear)

It doesn't have to get like this.
It doesn't have to get like this.

Call in the secret police.
Call in the secret police.

What happened to the vision we had, (ahh, ahh)
this silence is a strangled cry (call in the secret police) (ahh, ahh).
The freedom to say whatever we like (ahh, ahh),
replaced with a recital of lines (ahh, ahh).

What happened to the vision we had, (ahh, ahh)
this silence is a strangled cry (call in the secret police) (ahh, ahh).
The freedom to say whatever we like (ahh, ahh),
replaced with a recital of lines (ahh, ahh).

    General CommentI love this song. It seems to be comparing a relationship to soviet Russia, or possibly nazi Germany. It starts off with a joyous "revolution of hearts and minds", when they are young and in love, and everything is happy, and they have a wonderful future to look forward to, as they thought they did after the Russian revolution, but soon "the rot sets in, mistrust and suspicion". As time goes by the partners stop feeling the relationship and just start acting ("The freedom to say whatever we like, replaced with the recital of lines") to avoid persecution from the other half ("the secret police").
