Lyrics

45 minutes to pull all the switches
Bury your witness, cover your trail
Smash all the mirrors, break your reflection
Swallow your franchise, paint on your smile

45 minutes to muster a million
Look through your windows, rosebuds in May
Throw stones at Goliath, mauled by the lion
Swallow your tablets, watch your life slip away

I was saving you then, I’m saving you now
Tears on the pillow, blood on the crown

45 minutes to answer a question,
Wipe off the facepaint, exit the stage
45 mothers, 45 pictures,
45 minutes ...

I was saving you then, I’m saving you now
Tears on the pillow, blood on the crown
