lyrics

when you watch your brother bleed
for once it's no use to pretend
and now that the hour of need is come
it's never going to end

when i think about it i am lost again
because the stakes were higher than they'd ever been
what could we do for him?
what could any of us do for him
now that the hour of need is come
it's never going to end

don't flatter yourself that you've earned this (you'll tear yourself apart-)
we have to call him friend (-without me, I'm biding my time)
no matter how helpless concern is (you'll fall apart with or-)
we have to call him friend (-without me, I'm biting my tongue)
again and again

though your failure's guaranteed it's time,
you have to call him friend
cos now that the hour of need is come
it's never going to end

and when i think about it i am lost again
because the stakes were higher and they've always been
what could we do for him?
what could any of us do for him
now that the hour of need is come
it's never going to end

don't flatter yourself that you've earned this (you'll tear yourself apart-)
we have to call him friend (-without me, I'm biding my time)
no matter how helpless concern is (you'll fall apart with or-)
we have to call him friend (-without me, I'm biting my tongue)
again and again
