lyrics

We didn't know what we could do
Though we all saw what was happening
We could do nothing

The realm is safe the realm is strong
Though we all saw it was crumbling
We will carry on
---
They didn't know what they should say
While the actors were stumbling
They said nothing

The realm is safe the realm is strong
Though the outside is invading
We won't be moving

And the music plays on

Past the faceless critics' fingertips
I swam against the current
To keep from drowning

The tide of judgement's flooding in,
With its sad faceless courage
We will say nothing

And the music plays on
Silently immersed in my own heart
And we all wish them well
Holding onto pride when nothing is left
---
Did she die a noble death oh yes
Did she die of a broken heart
Often she did
Won't they allow me to just move on

The realm is safe the realm is strong
We'll send our greetings from the storm
The realm is safe the realm is strong
We will remain to carry on

And the music plays on
Silently immersed in my own heart
And we all wish them all well
Holding onto pride when nothing is left
