there's a twist in the way
each word rolls from its mouth
feels so evasive, leaves us frozen
in its line

little twists in the way
each word rolls from its mouth

and soon they all will know
that the barricade won't move

from the mist that surrounds
quiet towns come the footsteps
of a stranger,
soothes the years
of the beaten and the lonely

as i sing, everybody
the winter winds blow cold
mother cries, "they're too young to go"

and soon they all will know
that the barricade won't move
they'll say:

"they're never taking us alive
we are armed to the teeth
do you think our kids are safe?
they'll teach us things they'll never know
about"

it's so criminal, criminal, criminal, yeah
what a concept, oh
it's so typical, typical, typical, yeah
bet they might not like that
it's so criminal, criminal, criminal, yeah
what a concept, oh
it's so typical, typical, typical, yeah

teach them well
or they get blown away

in the end, it's revealed
twisted words out to steal
promised comfort, gave you hope
and took them both away

for what seem our word becomes
drenched in blood, and for what

and soon they all will know
that the barricade won't move
they'll say:

"they're never taking us alive
we are armed to the teeth
do you think our kids are safe?
they'll teach us things they'll never know
about"

it's so criminal, criminal, criminal, yeah
what a concept, oh
it's so typical, typical, typical, yeah
bet they might not like that
it's so criminal, criminal, criminal, yeah
what a concept, oh
it's so typical,
it's so typical, yeah

teach them well
or they get blown away

and i sing, everybody
the winter winds blow cold
i sing, everybody
the winter winds blow

soon they all will know
that the barricades won't move
