Dying To Be Heard



NERO'S FIDDLE
 
Twist one up for old times sake
Life's a show shot in one take
Here's to all we've done and seen
If love's a ride
You're a limousine

Raise your glass to those who fell
And all the stories they could tell
Who know's what's just around the bend
Someday we'll all meet again

Meanwhile I'll be sitting here
Thinking about this riddle
Listening to the sound I hear
I sweari it's Nero's fiddle
 
Turn the key
Step inside
Into a safe place we can hide
While angry fires paint the sky
I only want to hear your sigh

Yesterday I watched the news
The rules are made
So most will loose
It made me want to join the fight
But first I need to hold you tight

Meanwhile I'll be sitting here
Thinking about this riddle
Listening to the sound I hear
I swear it's Nero's fiddle

I hear the waves crashing
I hear the children laughing
I hear the cocking of a gun
I hear the crow calling
I hear the sky falling
I hear the sound of damage done
 
Meanwhile I'll be sitting here
Thinking about this riddle
Listening to the sound I hear
I swear it's Nero's fiddle
 
So twist one up for old time's sake
Life a show
Shot in one take
Here's to all we've done and seen
If love's a ride
Your a limousine
If love's a ride
You're a limousine
