7. Matter In The Head

(Barry Keenan)


It’s not safe
There is danger
Lurking in the psyche
Of some stranger at your side
Stranger at your side

You’re still young
You trust your freedom
Evil-doers don’t redeem themselves
When they go hide
When they go hide


Don’t be fooled
You can beg
You can fight
You can scream
You can cry
But they won’t let you go
No they won’t let you go


They’ll break the lock
Force their way in
They’ll slowly tear you limb from limb
They’ll leave you there for dead
Leave you there for dead


Love is buried in the darkness
Resurrect it for the heartless
Matter in the head
Matter in the head


Don’t be fooled
You can beg
You can fight
You can scream
You can cry
But they won’t let you go
No they won’t let you go
