  • Blood brothers of angels, now hear us
    We earthbound your offspring, don't fear us
    God willing will rise up be near you
    So open your arms now and take us

    So we beleaving our dreams like the Icarus of old
    The plans we made for the bold and the blue wide beyond
    there's nowhere to hide, there's no going back now

    As the wind wips over the hillside
    Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
    Steady wind blows over the sand
    Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
    As the breezed went straight as an arrow
    It begun over Kill Devil Hill
    Gasoline and the wind in the wires
    Kill Devil Hill and the way to the sky

    We stand on this seashore and wonder
    What madness, what secrets we plunder
    Our failure we run from discovery

    The wreckage of heaven lies on your sand
    First chance is abandoned
    With woodstring and wire we can barly control her
    Desire for destinys arrow

    As the wind wips over the hillside
    Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
    Steady wind blows over the sand
    Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
    As the breezed went straight as an arrow
    It begun over Kill Devil Hill
    Gasoline and the wind in the wires
