Peter Gabriel: The Veil










Peter Gabriel

[Intro]
Do solemnly swear
Do solemnly swear
That I will support and defend
That I will support and defend
The constitution of the United States
The constitution of the United States
Against all enemies
Against all enemies
Foreign and domestic
Foreign and domestic


[Verse 1]
Underneath the sky where the cold winds cross
There is an ocean where data flows
One man in a boat out on the sea
A sea of little bits of you and me


[Chorus]
Let it all go, set it all free
You let the whole wide world see
Exactly what is going on
Exactly who is looking on


[Verse 2]
Stories start to leak, they colour your name
While up above cloud turns to rain
You can feel the touch of a hand you know well
It's a very long way from Maryland


[Chorus 2]
Some say you're a patriot
Some call you a spy
An American hero
Or a traitor that deserves to die
In the heart of the free world
In the home of the brave you gave up everything
To bring down the veil


[Bridge]
There's no safe place to go
Now you've let that whistle blow
Show exactly what is going on
Show exactly who is looking on
Let it all go
Set it free
Let it all go
Let it go free
Set it free
Ha ha ha ha aah
Ahh oh
Information flow
Information flow
Information flow



PS: Peter Gabriel is one of the 100
