On The Wire

by Sisters of Mercy

Now the ground comes up too fast
too fast to meet you
in clouds of dust erupting
thick around your feet, be careful
in the rubble in shrouds in waiting
wall to wall to where you tread
now the quick and the dead and the same old
fates come calling cards away
how do you think it came to pass you
by the hard way by desire
how do you think it came to pass you by?
on the wire

I don't sleep so I don't dream so I don't
wake up frightened
everything is what it seems if
you look deep enough tonight and

On the wire, on the wire, I will not fall
