Lyrics
When I first saw them standing all pale-faced and scared
With bodies just trembling and eyes that just stared
I thought I would go up and behave like a priest
Speak of redemption or just say the least
And they never moved

When I joined them a little later they didn't think I was new
'Cause I was just as brittle from being with you
I saw a few jaws clench when I mentioned your name
But they never said anything about all their pain

And they never moved
And they never spoke
And they never cried
When the first one fell down I started to cry
And the second one was flailing preparing to die
The one just before me turning his head
Said: you best say a prayer son 'cause soon you'll be dead

But they never moved
And they never spoke
And they never lied
Seeing your ghost there running through the dead bodies
Averting your eyes from the mess that you made
And reaching me tired looking into my cold eyes
You just flinched at my question
Do you now feel betrayed?

But I never knew
And I never fell
And I never loved again

So now the first one, a new beginning of the line
Overlooking my stale life I think at least it was mine
