Broken Window - Arcade Fire

Deep in the past, far in the future time
Deep in the past, far in the future time
Just cause no-one saw you, that don't mean it aint a crime!

They say they know me, but they only know my name
They say they know me, but they only know my name
But through asking me questions, I aint gonna look the same!

If they want it they can take it, they dont need no reason why
If they want it they can take it, they dont need no reason why
The night they took your from me, I saw the Broken Window and I cried.

.. and I cried (repeated)

They bound my eyes and they bound my hands
They bound my eyes and they bound my hands
Where they gonna take me know? No-one understands!

They say they know me, but they only know my name
They say they know me, but they only know my name
But through asking me questions, I aint gonna look the same!

Lay there hands upon me know, this midnight gloom
Lay there hands upon me know, this midnight gloom
They didn't know me and they didn't know YOU, No, No...

Doing it since the night, in the dark, when they came to you, you, you...

Gained the world, but I lost your trust
Gained the world, but I lost your trust
I throw down on the edge, it aint easy to adjust

Come out and put your hands on your head
They said come out and put your hands on your head
Come and join the rest of us, were already dead!

If they want it they can take it, they dont need no reason why
If they want it they can take it, they dont need no reason why
The night they took your from me, I saw the Broken Window and I cried.

Go on together, if they touch a hair on your head
Go on together, if they touch a hair on your head
Come and join the rest of us, were already dead!

They won the battle but, the war is through
They won the battle but, the war is through
They didn't know me and they didn't know YOU, No, No...

Doing it since the night, in the dark, when they came to you, you, you...
