2013 Re-Mix of a track originally released on 2010.



You’re long gone, you’ve flown away
Heaven’s crime can no longer hold you here
The morning light writes your name
In the dust, and in dreams I’ll hold you near

Verse 1.

Inside these walls they’ve trapped a hurricane
Inside these walls a force of nature
The wings that beat, they beat a warning
They’ll break the walls and soon be flying


Verse 2:

There’s nothing here to hold me to the ground
The rising sun will take me higher
I’ve fallen once, I’ll not hit the ground again
I’ll break inside the gates of heaven.
When I was young there was joy in everything
And hope enough to keep me flying
But then they took away my freedom
And all I need to keep me running.

Verse 3:

All I do, I do to live again
And all I do, I do for nothing
To find a way to escape this prison
Before the sands run down to nothing
