Deep in the past, far in the future time
Deep in the past, far in the future time
Just 'cause no one saw you, that don't mean it ain't a crime

They say they know me but they only know my name
They say they know me but they only know my name
They're through asking me questions, I ain't gonna learn to sing

If they want it they can take it, they don't need no reason why
If they want it they can take it, they don't need no reason why
The night they took you from me I saw the broken window and I cried

They bound my eyes and they bound my hands
They bound my eyes and they bound my hands
Where they're gonna take me now? No one understands

They say they know me but they only know my name
They say they know me but they only know my name
They're through asking me questions, I ain't gonna learn to sing

Lay their hands upon me now, it's midnight blue
Lay the hands upon me now, it's midnight blue
They didn't know me and they didn't know you, no, no

Now reduced to hide in the dark when they came for you

I gained the world but I lost your trust
I gained the world but I lost your trust
they throw their money at you, it ain't easy to adjust

Come out, and put your hands on your head
I said come out, and put your hands on your head
Come and join the rest of us, we are already dead

If they want it they can take it, they don't need no reason why
If they want it they can take it, they don't need no reason why
The night they took you from me I saw the broken window and I cried

Woe unto them if they touch a hair on your head
Woe unto them if they touch a hair on your head
You're gonna join the rest of us, we are already dead

They won the battle, but the war is through
They won the battle, but the war is through
They didn't know me and they didn't know you, no, no

Now reduced to knock in the dark when they came for you
