Warm your self by the fire son The morning will come soon I′ll tell you stories of a better time and a place that we once knew Before we packed our bags and left all this behind We had a place that we could call home And a life that no one could touch
Dont hold me up now I can stand my own ground I dont need your help now You will let me down down down
We are the angry and the desperate The hungry and the cold We are the ones who kept quiet and always did what we were told But we′ve been sweating while you spelt so calm in the safety of your home We′ve been pulling up the nails that hold up everything you′ve know
Dont hold me up now I cant stand my own ground I dont need your help now You will let me down down down
So open your eyes child lets be on our way Broken windows and ashes are guiding our way Keep quiet no longer we′ll sing through the day Of the lives that we have lost And the lives we′ve reclaimed.
