lyrics

It feels like trouble but is there anyone out there who cares?
The two lay together and feel the tension in the air
She turns right beside him and says:
“There is some great evil out there”
“And I know where I can find it
It’s here, right there and everywhere”

It was a sudden disclosure
But one that we all feel deep down in there
She’s then up in a second,
Skipping breakfast and running down the stairs
Through the door to the open,
to the station for the next train into town
She’s got a bone to pick now with that great evil out there

The train is packed with commuters,
Reading headlines and oppression and despair
And a pic of some leader, out of touch and mentally beyond repair
And she feels that tension, screaming like a banshee in the air
The cards fall around her
Like weapons from that great evil out there

When it brings you down
It’s tough to get up but you do it anyway

Down at the last station, yes the spot ain’t too far from here
She can feel the direction:
The old building on the back side of the hill
People walk all around her
Not knowing if they’re here, there or anywhere
As the vices tighten from that great evil out there

Behind that old building she’s stopped in her tracks
At the bottom of some stairs by a figure in a black suit who says
“I know why you’re here and you won’t go any further now.”
Then he pulls his sunglasses down,
Two white spheres with a killer stare
Something strange goes on now;
It seems that great evil has arrived here

There’s no time to wait now,
Her fingers grab a huge space of that air
The dimensions bend around her;
Strange sounds; a reason to be scared
She tears it right open,
And she can see what she rumoured all along
The space turned into a mirror,
Reflecting a common truth everywhere

When it brings you down
It’s tough to get up but you do it anyway

She falls to the ground now, smiles faintly and looks up at the sky
There’s a chaos around her
But she knows now there’s a chance it could subside
The tables turn over
And who knows where things will go from here
You know this as a story
But you know where to take it all from there

When it brings you down it’s tough to get up
You wanna get down, but you gotta get up
And it’s tough to get up but you do it anyway
