Lyrics to The Thin Blue Line by Golgotha

3rd movement (continued)

The thin blue line

So you marshal your forces against law
with your cocktails primed in their secret places
under cover of some angry labour force
fanning hatred ablaze behind hidden faces
you’ve abandoned the front at the civic hall
so you stray from the path that the law embraces

Bring the baton round
the water cannon round
face the thin blue line
you know
that the blood you shall reap is the blood that you shall sow
when the bricks take flight and the choice is final

And they know who you are from their timeless records
where your plans were evolved behind brittle walls
and they know your locale and they know your methods
so they know where to come when the hammer falls

Bring the baton round
the water cannon round
face the thin blue line
you know
that the blood you shall reap is the blood that you shall sow
so cover yourself as the cauldron starts to blow

Bring the baton round
the water cannon round
face the thin blue line
you know
that the blood you shall reap is the blood that you shall sow
till the rivers run red and there’s nothing left at all
