Threshold – Return Of The Thought Police lyrics
From a room in a house on a hill
The world can change on the turn of a will
Ooh, there's no need to remind us
Ooh, you're killing us with kindness

On the left
On the left
On the left
A desolate horizon
On the right
On the right
On the right
A destiny is rising
We forget
We forget
We forget
The signs and implications
We deny
We deny
We deny
Our final condemnation

From the dust of oppression and foes
We have risen from our chains
Now the rust of complacency grows
As we give it all away
How did our conscience get so seared
That we could all stand by
As victory disappears before your eyes?

We can fight against corruption
We can stand for what is true
But we fall when we surrender
To the corporation view
And our faith can only offer
What we faithfully pursue
I promise you, I promise you

On the left
On the left
On the left
Apostasy has spoken
On the right
On the right
On the right
Our promises are broken

All the things we believe in and know
Fall like targets in a war
All the thoughts we were thinking long ago
Have become unthinkable
How did our conscience get so seared
That we could all stand by
As history disappears before your eyes?

We can fight against corruption
We can stand for what is true
But we fall when we surrender
To the corporation view
And our faith can only offer
What we faithfully pursue
I promise you, I promise you

It's a silent revolution as so thoughtfully
We're persuaded 'til we're crushed and jaded
Feigning ignorance, faking innocence
To belie our inner voice
They shoot us with ideology, kill with policy,
So protection overrides objection
Contemplation a violation
'Til the memory of freedom is gone
'Til the memory of freedom is gone

We can fight against corruption
We can stand for what is true
But we fall when we surrender
To the corporation view
And our faith can only offer
What we faithfully pursue
I promise you, I promise you

We can fight against corruption
We can stand for what is true
But we fall when we surrender
To the corporation view
And our faith can only offer
What we faithfully pursue
I promise you, I promise you
