TITLE. LYRICS

Concert version

Walked in line

All dressed in uniforms so fine
They drank and killed to pass the time
Wearing the shame of all their crimes
With measured steps, they walked in line
They walked in line

They carried pictures of their wives
And numbered tags to prove their lives
They walked in line

Full of a glory never seen
They made it through
the whole machine
To never question anymore
Hypnotic trance, they never saw
They walked in line
