lyrics

She was cursed to the bone
Cursed from the day she was born
She was broken in prayer at the place where her mother went down
Empty eyed since that cold blooded morn

A pylon you strapped to her back
A martyr for 70 miles
You gave her to wear a fine corset of gunpowder
Gave her to bear a conspirator's smile

Now the still born songbird
Must re-ascend
As the wounded trumpet
Cries till the end

Tell me who
Do you think you are
Lording over the helpless
Over sea over sun
And you may have come this far
Playing god unnoticed
But believe me your time...
Your time will come

(You send them into a dead forest
You close up their hungering throats,
You give them white guns and you give them black truths
You say kill those that cross you, and kill those that don't)

But when the tide turns to the stronger man
And when you cry out to be saved
Well their ears till be closed by the very same deeds
You can take up with pride and hold close at the grave

Did you once love your mother?
Were your hopes high back then?
Did you hold thoughts of virtue?
Did you pray for your men?

Tell me who
Do you think you are
Lording over the helpless
Over sea over sun
And you may have come this far
Playing god unnoticed
But believe me your time...
Your time will come
