Horses & Chariots

Album: Afraid of Heights (2016)

  • Horses and chariots
    Churches and states
    Devotion turns dangerous
    When armed with rules of faith

    Prisoners and patriots
    Angels and saints
    If minds are persuaded enough
    Compassion turns to hate

    (So when the)
    Time comes to bury us
    Together we must stay
    (Don't let the)
    Horses and chariots
    Drag our love away
    No

    Borders and boundary signs
    Drawn by red tape
    Those who colour outside of the lines
    Define the human race

    Warlords and suffering eyes
    Soldiers and slaves
    The side of the fence that we climb
    Determines who's afraid

    (So when the)
    Time comes to bury us
    Together we must stay
    (Don't let the)
    Horses and chariots
    Drag our love away
    (Until we)
    Swallow our pride
    Our hearts will collide

    And the skies of hysteria will
    Come rain down on you
    Cleanse the soul from the hands that divide
    Our world in time

    (So when the)
    Time comes to bury us
    Well how can you live while so many die?
    (Don't let the)
    Horses and chariots
    Hide the view from their eyes
    (Until we)
    Swallow our pride
    We've chosen a faith, we've chosen a side
    (Until we)
    Swallow our pride
    Our hearts will collide Writer/s: AARON SOLOWONIUK, BEN KOWALEWICZ, IAN D'SA, JON GALLANT
