Lyrics

Behind the Wire

Written By: Garon Staines

Imagine if the sun shone down and bled the sky into the ground
You booked a room without a view, the desert sky is endless blue
See the children in the sand, strangers in a stranger land
There's desperation in the air, sunlight falls on jet black hair

Behind the wire
Behind the wire
Souls on fire
Suppressed desire
Behind the wire
Behind the wire
Behind the wire

Somewhere out there in Kurdistan a grandma weeps and holds her hand
There's nothing more that she can do, her little ones are far from view

Behind the wire
Behind the wire
Souls on fire
Suppressed desire
Behind the wire
Behind the wire
Behind the wire

One in Six Billion

Written By: Garon Staines

ou've forgotten who you are, with your wardrobe fall of masks
You tried to be what you can't be, living someone elses dream

Don't you know that you are one in six billion
There's noone else here quite like you

You lay in bed awake at night wondering if this is hell
You've been running your whole life but you aint ever met yourself

Don't you know that you are one in six billion
There's noone else here quite like you
And if you go tangled up in blue like Dylan
I won't ever forget you

You've been looking in wrong places, chasing faces
You won't find yourself there
You've been hunting with the shadows, with broken arrows
You won't find yourself there

Don't you know that you are one in six billion
There's noone else here quite like you
And if you go tangled up in blue like Dylan
I won't ever forget you
