lyrics

Give them the cold stone
Give them the hard silhouette
Lead them to whisper terrible words
Give them the cold stare
Give them a good reason to count
All the beats their hearts are skipping
Their hearts are skipping

Send us a lifeline under the lee
Of the old dog cavalry
Sing us the swan song of the enemy
But don't you dare speak their names to me
Don't you dare speak their names

Give them a good fight
Get them to fall back
Breaking the silence in the trees
Here is a mountain
There is the ocean
And all the giants here are closing
They're closing in

Send us a lifeline under the lee
Of the old dog cavalry
Sing us the swan song of the enemy
But don't you dare speak their names to me
Don't you dare speak their names

Send us a lifeline under the lee
Of the old dog cavalry
Sing us the swan song of the enemy
But don't you dare speak their names to me
Don't you dare speak their names
To me
