Stand up, stand up, mark the place
Where your foes all fell today
You say they fought bravely
I'm sure they did yeah, I'm sure
They didn't make it out with their dignity

And line up, line up, take the names
Of all the prisoners left today
You say they all played it right
I'm sure they did yeah, but I'm not sure
How many of them will sleep tonight

Shards of glass mark all the lines
But how many are left inside?

Speak up, speak up, take the blame
For all the damage done today
You say it had to be done
I'm sure it did yeah, but I'm not sure
How the hell you get to sleep at night

And listen, listen, can you hear?
Voices will not disappear
You say nothing, helplessly,
That's just no comfort anymore
You'd better work on your excuses

Shards of glass mark all the lines
But how many are left inside?
And how many will get away?
Have you even thought this through?

Give up, give up, take the shame
Of all the ways you've lacked today
You say 'unavoidable'
Well I don't trust you anymore, yeah,
How long til you slip out that door?
Or will they be pushing you?

Shards of glass mark all the lines
But how many are left inside?
And how many will get away?
Have you even thought this through?

Empty words mark all the ways
You justify yourself today
I'd like to see you on those fields
Then you'd have to think this through
