So swallow hard the serpent
Of many tags and faces hid in masks
Coiled 'round this lung until the last
He'll crack your boots, young pagans
‘Cause like you, I was hatched to traipse on cold
And 17's a long-drawn way from hope

And I've learned these lessons I was taught
Taut, so taught
And now I'm telling you

Return the faith
Return the faith
They're smashing out the veils
Return the faith
And there's no escape
So return the faith
With charging light brigades
Return the faith
You've gotta move

So as betrayed by rainbows
Here I convey I've sold out your dear cause
And the king has placed us in his jaws
It's sure no place can hold us
But in this scene I'm December
And your June's wretch
And my idyls lay gasping as if death

And I've learned these lessons I was taught
Taut, so taught
And now I'm telling you
And I've learned these lessons I was taught
Taut, so taught
And now I'm telling you

Return the faith
Return the faith
They're smashing out the veils
Return the faith
And there's no escape
So return the faith
With charging light brigades
Return the faith
You've gotta move

Return the faith (return the faith)
Return the faith (return the faith)
Return the faith
