lyrics

A punishing blow
from the gallery
just enough
to keep him off his feet
silent applause
from the wooden floor
the kind of healing
he won’t find anymore
between the faces
that crowd these streets
begging for love
as he falls to his knees

Silence the voices
once and for all
Summon protection
before you fall apart

Found a new start
in a guilty cabaret
as an extra man
with professional taste
a charming way to stay on the scene
his diamond feathers aren’t
what they used to be
a charming way to stay on the scene
his diamond feathers aren’t
what they used to be

Silence the voices
once and for all
summon protection
before you fall apart

How will you survive
the sin of the night?
