Lyrics

In this place, this place of comfort
He thinks that he will enjoy it here
And in this place, this place of comfort
Are the things that he likes the nearer

And how can he break from this eternal habit
He looks for a witness to this outrage
And the doors fall shut and he is caught like a rabbit
He looks for a face to hide his age

Hello, I want you to meet the Watcher
Say hello Watcher, come meet the Watcher
Say hello Watcher, smile at his face
Say hello Watcher, come meet the Watcher
Say hello Watcher, come see his place
