about

From the Wild Lakes.

lyrics

I heard they keep a note of everything you say
They’ve got a picture of who you were 
And they’ll use it if you get ahead 
If you open up 
They’ll quickly close you up
And if you wisen up
They’ll plug you in

Uniform 
I’m in my uniform 
Crossing the river 
Into the smoke 

Another one stops 
Stands still
And fails
Not me
I’m hard as nails
What’s in his rucksack?
What’s in his mind?
In the machine
His tape unwinds 

Where does he keep me
Hidden?

Uniform 
I’m in my uniform 
Crossing the river 
Into the smoke

If you open up 
They’ll quickly close you up
And if you wisen up
They’ll plug you in

I found you
Always one step away 
I found you
But you’re always one step away
One step 
One step 
One step
One step
The last step
I’ll ever take
