New Model Army – No Rest lyrics

There is no rest for the wicked ones
Dear god - what is this evil that we've done??

Is it that we wanted more than you gave
Why did you put us then
In this smalltown grave
Humility -is that what you want?
Why did you make us then the way you did??
Yes,
We have pride
Yes,
We have pride -
Is this our sin?
Is this our sin?!

4 O'clock in the morning,
Still we cannot sleep
Turning overturning round twisting in our sweat
They say there is no rest for the wicked ones
Dear god - what have we done?
There is no rest for the wicked ones
Dear god - what is this evil that we've done??

Is it the times that we've been out fighting? Well i'll tell you all those times -
We never really hurt anybody
Or is it that we were eating
While other people were starving
Is this our crime?
Is this our crime??!

4 O'clock...

Is it the times we laughed about it all
Through all those whisky nights so far away
Yes,
We have betrayed you
Yes,
We have betrayed you -
Is this our crime?
Is this our crime?!

4 O'clock...
