We stood together in the open field And heard the secret that the night revealed Then we chased the lie Racing through the sky
Can we untangle guilt or innocence? How hard we torture this ambivalence Night will bring no dawn Where has power gone?
For I'll steal your dreams while you are sleeping And sell them for dust and cheap lust And I'll slit your hope while you are weeping And wipe the blood clean with morphine Be my queen
The wind howls the black clouds around the storm at sea I'm dropping at too great a speed Come closer to me on your hands and knees Alone in the kill zone
How much is not enough, how much is through? How long will I be getting over you? How much grief and sin 'til a heart caves in? 'Til a heart caves in, 'til a heart caves in

Dido helped shut down a Neo-Nazi Web site after learning it was using "White Flag" to promote its hateful messages. Owners of the site had misinterpreted the track as racist and thought they represented their white supremacy views.
