David Gray - Draw The Line Lyrics

Well we had to pull on something, so we're grabbing at the threads
And now the world's unravelling inside our very heads
Glasses smeared with lipstick, hungry eyes out in the street
Same old bodies moving, to the same old beat
I had to draw the line, had to draw the line

All this talk can hypnotise you and we can ill afford
To give ourselves to sentiment when our time is, oh so short
Names beneath the lichen on these cemetery stones
There are carnivals of silverfish waiting to dance upon our bones
Had to draw the line, help me draw the line
Help draw the line, help me draw the line

I've been doubting yours baby
I've been doubting mine
I've been out of circulation
Where the sun don't shine

I've been doubting fame and wealth
Charity, even love itself, draw the line

I ain't saying he's bad baby
I ain't saying he's good
Merely that he ain't so different
'Neath his executioners hood

In the name of liberty, in the name of brotherhood
Had to draw the line
Had to draw the line

Need to take some pride baby, need to take some heart
Need to take evasive action, when the rumpus start
Here we are buck naked, yeah but
Where should we begin
When it's not the flesh we're after
But the howlin' ghost within
Help me draw the line
Help me draw the line
Help me draw the line
Need to draw the line

Help me draw the line
Need to draw the line
Had to draw the line
Pack your bags we're going home
Pack your bags we're going yeah
Had to draw the line
Pack your bags we're going home
Pack your bags we're going yeah
Had to draw the line
Pack your bags we're going home
