They flutter behind you your possible pasts
A warning to anyone still in command
In derelict sidings the poppies entwine

Do you think we should be closer?
She stood in the doorway the ghost of a smile
Her cold eyes imploring the men in their macs
Stepping uo boldly one put out his hand

Do you think we should be closer?
By the cold and religious we were taken in hand
Tongue tied and terrified we learned how to pray
And strung out behind us the banners and flags

Do you think we should be closer?
