David Gray – Draw The Line lyrics

Well we had to pull on something
So we're grabbing at the threads
And now the world's unraveling
Inside our very heads

Glasses smeared with lipstick
Hungry eyes out in the street
Same old bodies moving
To the same old beat

And had to draw the line
Had to draw the line

All this talk can hypnotize you
And we can I'll afford
To give ourselves to sentiment
When our time is, oh, so short

Names beneath the lichen
On these cemetery stones
And there are carnivals of silverfish
Waiting to dance upon our bones

Have to draw the line
Have to draw the line
Help me 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 executioner's hood

In the name of liberty
In the name of brotherhood
Have to draw the line
Have 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
Have to draw the line

Pack your bags we're going home
Pack your bags we're going
Had to draw the line

Pack your bags we're going home
Pack your bags we're going
Had to draw the line

Pack your bags we're going home
