Paolo Nutini – Iron Sky

Capo 2 with

VERSE
We are proud individuals living for the city
But the flames couldn’t go much higher
We find Gods and religions to To paint us with salvation
But no one, no nobody, Can give you the power

CHORUS
To rise over love and over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom

VERSE
Oh, that’s life, left dripping down the walls
Of a dream that cannot breathe in this harsh reality
Mass confusion spoon fed to the blind
Serves now to define our cold society

CHORUS
From which we’ll rise over love over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom

POST-CHORUS
You just got to hold on
You just got to hold on
Ohh ohhhh ohhhoh ohh ohh
Ohh ohhhh ohhhoh ohh

VERSE
”To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair.
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed,
The bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die,
And the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men –
Machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
You, the people, have the power
To make this life free and beautiful
To make this life a wonderful adventure
Let us use that power!
Let us all unite!”

CHORUS
And we’ll rise over love and over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom into freedom

CHORUS
From which we’ll rise over love and over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom
Freedom, freedom

OUTRO
Oh rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me
