From the Factory release "Closer"

Here are the young men
A weight on their shoulders
Here are the young men
Well, were have they been?
We knocked on the doors
Of Hell's darker chambers
Pushed to the limits
We dragged ourselves in

Watched from the wings
As the scenes were replaying
We saw ourselves now
As we never had seen
Portrayal of the traumas
and degenerations
The sorrows we suffered
And never were free

Where have they been?
Where have they been?
Where have they been?
Where have they been?

Weary inside, now
Our hearts lost forever
Can't replace the fear
Or the thrill of the chase
These rituals showed up
The door of our wanderings
Opened and shut
And then slammed in our face

Where have they been?
Where have they been?
Where have they been?

Where have they been?
