From my window I see roads
That lead to darkness, leading home
And in the midnight of a soul's unsleeping
I hear the waterfall of women weeping
Hear the distant noise of traffic stalling
I hear the prostituted children calling (calling out)

         Cm         Bb         Cm
From the barred and mesh-floor streets
Bb            Eb     Bb        Ab       Ab 
Of a winter's night, without a moon
             Eb            Ab     
I am safe -- hidden here
I am safe hidden here...
Hiding out


I look over chequered fields
And the towering web of steel
The young and old will sit and judge unfeeling
While the empty churches bells are pealing, pealing out
And the green hills lay ignored and untended
Lonely watchers remain unbefriended, without a friend

And out in the one-way streets
Is a swelling maze, without a door
I am safe -- hidden here

          Eb             Ab
I am safe hidden here...

     Cm 
I am safe
          Eb             Ab
I am safe hidden here... hiding out
