lyrics

A vigil is kept
With spyglasses fixed
On foreign shores
With thoughts of war
A vigil is kept
With fear of beyond
The ones who are within
Free to bless and curse and sin

Pay the boatman
Pay the healer
Pay the soldier
Pay the dealer
Pay for comfort
Pay for trust
Pay for morals
But only when you must

The towers stand tall
Soldiers observe
Blinkered and blind
To what's been consigned
Towers stand tall
Hidden from view
Moss climbs the wall
And towers fall

Pay the boatman
Pay the healer
Pay the soldier
Pay the dealer
Pay for comfort
Pay for trust
Pay for morals
But only when you must
