We were young
When the days all seemed to bend to our tongues, set
Sounding out what we soaked in
We believe
By the lights of birthday candles
We sealed our fate
Well something seems wrong
But if I go along, I am safe

For the king
And by sword or by slander, agree while
Line by line, they laid them down in a field
And by lights of altar candles
We sealed our faith
Well something seems wrong
But if I go along, I am safe

Killing the mood
Well he meets me half past noon
With a hat full of horrors and rue
Just relax, my ridiculous one

So we're told
Twenty years of preparation before you start
Then bury me in credit cards
So I plugged myself in to debt and decree 'til
All the fight I had left
Was taught, bought and bored from me
While debutantes dance, students sat in their desks
And the lights from their tellies did glow
And from these small fictions we learned our convictions
Which threats can be laid to control, hold still
And I didn't want to clash
So I bet the past
I'm not mad that I lost, I'm just mad that I laid down the cash
