Bob Mould Stand Guard Lyrics

Last updated:

Stand guard over what is mine
Stand guard day and night to watch over me and mine
I keep at a distance, it suits me just fine
I need no assistance, I stand guard all the time

I meant it as a threat
It's a promise you can keep
Don't want no interference
Standing up in my sleep

Stand guard over sea and land
I watch what they've done to this earth, I don't need no master plan
When all the consequences have far been outweighed by selfish reward
I feel an obligation sometimes I'm not quite sure what it's toward

There's got to be some reason that we all keep on living
More often than not we leave this earth
With at least two handfuls of misgiving

I stand guard over what is rightfully mine
I watch all this beauty disintegrating
To stand guard is not enough
Makes me feel like I'm waiting for something horrendous to happen
but I stand guard over family and friends
It's all that I can do to stand here and watch how this lifetime ends

I've never felt as much as I feel for you now
I'm not about to stand here and watch this whole world bring you down
I see how it brings you down
But I will stand guard for you
I will stand guard over you
