  • Well we had to grab on something
    So we're pulling at the threads
    And now the world's unraveling
    Inside our very heads
    Glasses smeared with lipstick
    Hungry eyes out in the street
    Same old bodies moving
    To the same old beat
    Had to draw the line
    All this talk can hypnotize you and
    We can ill afford
    To give ourselves to sentiment
    When our time is oh so short
    Names beneath the lichen
    On these cemetery stones
    And carnivals of silverfish
    Waiting to dance upon our bones
    Have to draw the line, have to draw the line
    Have to draw the line, have to draw the line
    I've been doubting yours baby
    I've been doubting mine
    I've been out of circulation
    Where the sun don't shine
    I've been doubting fame and wealth
    Charity, even love itself
    Draw the line
    I ain't saying he's bad baby
    I ain't saying he's good
    Merely that he ain't so different
    Neath his executioners hood
    In the name of liberty
    In the name of brotherhood
    Have to draw the line
    Have to draw the line
    Need to take some pride baby
    Need to take some heart
    Need to take evasive action
    When the rumpus start
    Here we are buck naked baby
    But where should we begin
    When it's not the flesh we're after
    But the howlin' ghost within
    Have to draw the line
    Need to draw the line
    Had to draw the line
    Need to draw the line
    Have to draw the line
    Pack your bags we're going home
    Pack your bags we're going yeah
    Had to draw the line
    Pack your bags we're going home
    Pack your bags we're going yeah
    Help me draw the line
    Pack your bags we'fre going home Writer/s: DAVID GRAY, NEILL MACCOLL, ROBBIE MALONE
