Protomartyr – Up The Tower lyrics
[Verse 1]
I gave him a cigarette
So he opened up his head
The man forever on the corner
He called it his pre-vision: 
Unhorse for me, dear sir
The marble emperor
Defenestrate the king

[Verse 2]
The howling waves of people
Crashing through the first blockade
The guards - they washed away
They thundered up the stairwell
Until they reached that golden door
They knocked upon the golden door

[Chorus 1]
Knock it down

[Verse 3]
The portraits in the hallway
Look better smashed upon the floor
Gaudy baubles - turned to dust
The hatred he brewed within us
Is now crashing loud upon his shore
The vultures returned to roost

What a lovely view
Horizon looks like fire
Open up the window
Let the light in

[Chorus 2]
Throw him out [x28]

What a lovely view
From the window
What a lovely dream
