  • You, you who smiled when you’re in pain
    You who soldiered through the profane
    They were distracted and shut down

    So why, why would you talk to me at all
    Such words were dishonorable and in vain
    Their promise as solid as a fog

    And where was your watchman then

    I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
    I’ll be your warrior of care, your first warden
    I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
    The greatest honor of all as your guardian

    You, you in the chaos feigning sane
    You who has pushed beyond what’s humane
    Them as the ghostly tumbleweed

    And where was your watchman then

    I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
    I’ll be your warrior of care, your first warden
    I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
    The greatest honor of all as your guardian

    Now no more smiling mid crest fall
    No more managing unmanageables
    No more holding still in the hailstorm

    Now enter your watch woman

    I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
    I’ll be your warrior of care, your first warden
    I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
    The greatest honor of all as your guardian
