Sophia – Mockingbirds After The Picture Show lyrics

Sing a dirge or a peaceful word that makes the children dance.
You fearful herd who do you serve that makes you so afraid.
Sing us to sleep so when we wake we won't know fear.

Mockingbirds, say your words
Step by step we'll fall right in line
Brick by brick we'll build our walls, until we're all the same

Bow down to the sultans
Let the church bells sing our prostitution

When I sing, you sing along
I sing along in the stillness between each breath

My heart begins to tremble as your soul draws near
Sister don't leave me, brother please wait with me
Because without love we're all so lost

Sing us to sleep so when we wake we won't know fear.
Complacency has taken me, now all I know is fear
In the stillness between each breath, we won't know fear
So put your lips across my face, a kiss goodnight
And leave me in my peaceful slumber

Wake up o sleeper

You sold yourself to a picture show tyrant

Bow down to the sultans
Let the church bells sing our prostitution
