A golden generation
Sons and daughters of silence and abdication
Keeping identical secrets
Lonely, paranoid and sleepless

They don't believe in evil

But I know they'll drive their nails through you if they can find a cross

And when I see my baby's eyes
I'll just want to keep her safe through the dark of the night

You can be so dangerously wrong
But still know in your heart that you're right
There's nothing in there but valves and electricity
The sooner it stops beating, the sooner you'll know it's a lie

And when I see my baby's eyes
I'll just want to keep her safe through the dark of the night
From you


A lullaby
