Peter Gabriel

Wallflower (Video)

Six by six, from wall to wall
Shutters on the windows, no light at all
Damp on the floor, you got damp in the bed
They're trying to get you crazy, get you out of your head
They feed you scraps, and they feed you lies
to lower your defences, no compromise
There's nothing you can do, the day can be long
Your mind is working overtime, your body's not too strong.

|: |: Hold on, hold on :| :|

They put you in a box, so you can't get heard
Let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred
Hold on, you have gambled with your own life, you face the night alone
while the builders of the cages sleep with bullets, bars and stone
They do not see your road to freedom that you build with flesh and bone.

They take you out - the light burns your eyes
to the talking room, it's no surprise
Loaded questions from clean white coats
Their eyes are all as hidden as their hippocratic oath
They tell you how to behave, behave as their guest
You want to resist them, you do your best
They take you to your limits, they take you beyond
For all that they are doing there's no way to respond.



Though you may disappear, you're not forgotten here
And I will say to you: I will do what I can do
You are not forgotten here
And I will say to you: I will do what I can do
We will do what we can do!
