David Gray - Draw The Line

rate me

Well we had to pull on something, so we're grabbing at the threads

And now the world's unravelling inside our very heads

Glasses smeared with lipstick, hungry eyes out in the street

Same old bodies moving, to the same old beat

I had to draw the line, had to draw the line

All this talk can hypnotise you and we can ill afford

To give ourselves to sentiment when our time is, oh so short

Names beneath the lichen on these cemetery stones

There are carnivals of silverfish waiting to dance upon our bones

Had to draw the line, help me draw the line

Help draw the line, help me draw the line

I've been doubting yours baby

I've been doubting mine

I've been out of circulation

Where the sun don't shine

I've been doubting fame and wealth

Charity, even love itself, draw the line

I ain't saying he's bad baby

I ain't saying he's good

Merely that he ain't so different

'Neath his executioners hood

In the name of liberty, in the name of brotherhood

Had to draw the line

Had to draw the line

Need to take some pride baby, need to take some heart

Need to take evasive action, when the rumpus start

Here we are buck naked, yeah but

Where should we begin

When it's not the flesh we're after

But the howlin' ghost within

Help me draw the line

Help me draw the line

Help me draw the line

Need to draw the line

Help me draw the line

Need to draw the line

Had to draw the line

Pack your bags we're going home

Pack your bags we're going yeah

Had to draw the line

Pack your bags we're going home

Pack your bags we're going yeah

Had to draw the line

Pack your bags we're going home
