Intervention – Arcade Fire:

The king has taken back the throne
The useless seed is sown
When they say they’re cutting off the phone
I tell ’em you’re not home

[There’s] no place to hide
You’re fighting as a soldier on their side
You’re still a soldier in your mind
Though nothing’s on the line

You say it’s money that we need
As if we’re only mouths to feed
I know no matter what you say
There’s some debts you’ll never pay

Working for the church while your family die
You take what they give you and you keep it inside
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, “We’ll go at it alone.”

I can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
Don’t wanna fight, don’t wanna die
Just wanna hear you cry

Who’s gonna throw the very first stone?
Oh! Who’s gonna reset the bone?
Walking with your head in a sling
Want to hear the soldier sing

Working for the church while my family die
Your little baby sister’s gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, “We’ll go at it alone.”

I can taste your fear
It’s gonna lift you up and take you outta here
And the bone shall never heal
I care not if you kneel

We can’t find you now
But they’re gonna get their money back somehow
And when you finally disappear
We’ll just say you were never here

Been working for the church while your life falls apart
Singing Hallelujah with the fear in your heart
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, “We’ll go at it alone.”

Hear the soldier groan, “We’ll go at it alone.”
