Lyrics

Like rusty old nails
At the bottom of the sea
Telling no tales
For the good of the Admiralty
You jump when you're told to
Through the open door
And the King of Norway
He's the man you all died for

On this Jacob's Ladder
The only way up is down
Three days in the water
Watching all the secrets drown
Jacob's Ladder

And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain

A thousand lifetimes
Left standing at the docks
In the bar down in Whitehall
They're sure the boat won't rock
In a file marked secret
In a drawer kept closed
Nobody wonders
Because nobody knows

About this Jacob's Ladder
The only way up is down
Three days in the water
Watching all the secrets drown
Jacob's Ladder

And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain

On this Jacob's Ladder
The only way up is down
Three days in the water
Watching all the secrets drown
On this Jacob's Ladder
The only way up is down
Three days in the water
Watching all the secrets drown
Jacob's Ladder

O Bulldog Leader, sooner or later
We'll dig up the body and try your cadaver (Jacob's Ladder)
O Bulldog Leader, sooner or later
We'll dig up the body and try your cadaver (Jacob's Ladder)
O Bulldog Leader, sooner or later
(Jacob's Ladder)
