Marillion - Berlin



Tekst piosenki:


  
   The mascara'd blonde from the Berliner bar
  Rises at twilight, gets dressed in a daze
  Black leather crackles and cold water runs
  As she touches the walls of memory maze
  And the shadows of men she has known fill her day
  She's held half the world in her arms so they say
  But she wakes up without them with a hole in her heart
  And she puts on her clothes lives her life behind bars
  
  The mascara'd blonde from the Berliner bar
  Sighs at the skylight gets lost in the haze
  Black leather crackles and cold water runs
  As she touches the walls of her memory maze
  
  Someone got stranded in no man's land
  Dancing in the spotlight to the sound of clapping hands
  Nobody knows who's side he was on
  It's a risk that you take in no man's land
  Nobody knows what made him decide
  To run for freedom and to certain suicide
  When they turn off the guns and his fingers uncurl
  He's clutching a photograph of a Berlin party girl
  
  Come in from your checkpoints on your lonely roads
  Come in from your ditches in your silent fields
  Where intensified light from a rifle sight
  Makes the darkness day
  And the day too bright,
  
  And we wake up without you
  We wake up without you
  With a hole in our hearts
  
  You mad dog shaven head bottle-boy freaks
  In Martens and khaki, drunk on sake
  You stare at yourself in the cruel flush of dawn
  Terrified, sunken eyed, withered and drawn
  The butcher, the baker, the munitions maker
  The over-achiever, the armistice breaker
  The freebase instructor, the lightning conductor
  The psycho, the sailor, the tanker, the tailor
  The black market mailer
  The quick and the dead
  The spotlight dancer
  The quick and the dead
  We wake up without you
  With a hole in our hearts
  
  The mascara'd blonde from the Berliner bar
  Rises at twilight, gets dressed in a daze
