Shell shock
Always a battle at the front lines
Fall back
It’s only me on your land mines
Spring trap
An answer waiting for a question
Wind up
The bumper sticker impression

Toe the line right up to the blame
What side would you choose for me
If you didn’t know my name?

White noise
I couldn’t disagree at first blush
Drowned out
Something gets lost in the onrush
You try to take my wonder
Wonder what you’d do that for
‘Cause there can’t be much value
In not hoping anymore

Size up your targets and take aim
Which shot would you save for me
If you didn’t know my name?

BABY, WHAT’S COME BETWEEN US?
POLITICS OF THE WEDGE
CONQUER AND DIVIDE
IN THE KNOW – I GET THE POINT
‘TIL IT KILLS OFF THE JOY
THAT YOU KEEP INSIDE

The compass demagnetized
And I’m at my most adrift
You’re selling me an anchor
But I’m asking for a lift

Losing time always seems a shame
How much could you spare for me
If you didn’t know my name?
