Album: Black Country (2010)
  • I hold, the passion
    For many years, I would listen
    The heavy weight upon my chest

    Like a wailing wall
    Code of silence of a dying heart
    Don't know where the end begins and the truth starts
    When the hammer falls it falls on you
    I sit here waiting, waiting
    I pull back the veil and I just can't breathe, uh
    And I fly away, fly away

    Like a song of yesterday
    Freezing night an oil lamp burns
    The suns fire, will soon return
    Broken castles, the flags still flown

    Like a living ghost
    Code of silence of a dying heart
    Don't know where the end begins and the truth starts
    When the hammer falls it falls on you
    I sit here waiting, waiting
    I pull back the veil and I just can't breathe, uh
    And I fly away

    Break it down, so low you don't know where you been
    Try a little harder, now you're the drunk mad man in jail
    I fly away
    Gonna fly away
    Gonna fly away
    I'm reaching out
    Like a song from yesterday Writer/s: Glenn William Hughes
