lyrics

you'll run to the gate
but you'll be marked late
it’s for your own good, it’s for your own good

you’re likely to make
the grandest mistakes
you suffer alone in the skin and the bone

let’s sharpen those
new sets of arrows
for the next generation of playground martyrs
and join in the game
of intolerable shame
‘cos everyone shares in the sins of their fathers

school bell rings
single-file in
trade you my unhappily-ever afters
so bring out those things
to hammer the wings
of the next generation of playground martyrs
