somewhere in these private minds, the last one comes just in time to clear out the chambers and sew up the lips, 'cause that's the price to pay for hoping every slips not a slide. in other words not to get it wrong, it's pointless to walk when it's past time to run. secured under the weight of watchful eyes, lulled to sleep under clear expansive skies. somewhere in these prying hearts conflicting histories tear us apart and we hope we don't get what we deserve, hide behind the targets in front of all the people we serve.

    General Commentwell, i think it's about politicians who keep lying, and although they try to keep in front of it, their lies are catching up, the people will problably end up with the shit the politicians have left behind.

    General CommentThis song was written after GUy visited the Nazi death camp Dacau (sp?), and clearly it seems to be about the acceptance of horrible things by the public.

    General CommentYeah this song definitely sounds like its about trying to hide the atrocities that happened in the Nazi death camps or some kind of public denial about what happened to make it easier to deal with. I love this song.
