We had visions in the night
I was scared and you held me tight

It was like we were in black and white
As clear as day, as dark as night

And the truth became a lie
There was no longer peace of mind
Just fear of the unknown and the unkind

And then when he undressed me
And took my body
I was resolute to being fine

Now the soldiers are all on fire
And our hearts are dead from desire

And when you say it has nothing to do
Nothing to do with you, you're a liar
Now the sky is filled with dust
Of those we loved and those we lost

Rebuild the tower
Make it last longer
Make it stronger
Give up your power
