Whisper To A Scream (Birds Fly)

Album: The Icicle Works (1983)
Charted: 53 37
  • Some things take forever
    But with building bricks of trust and love
    Mountains can be moved

    Love come, down upon us 'til you flow like water
    Burning, with the hope of insight
    Feathered, look they're covered with a bright elation
    Stolen, in the sight of love

    We are, we are, we are but your children
    Finding our way around indecision
    We are, we are, we are ever helpless
    Take us forever, a whisper to a scream

    Birds fly, in the eye of the faithless daughter
    Broken, at the bitter end
    Wasted, sacrifice for a new nirvana
    Night time, sends us on our way

    We are, we are, we are but your children
    Finding our way around indecision
    We are, we are, we are ever helpless
    Take us forever, a whisper to a scream

    A whisper to a scream
    A whisper to a scream
    A whisper to a scream
    A whisper to a scream
