Paolo NutiniIron Sky

We are proud individuals Living for the city But the flames Couldn't go much higher We find God and religions To paint us with salvation But no one, no nobody Can give you the power To rise Over love Over hate Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind Over fear and into freedom Oh, that's life That's 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 From which we'll rise Over love Over hate Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind Over fear and into freedom You've just got to hold on You've just got to hold on [Charlie Chaplin's speech from The Great Dictator] “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.” And we'll rise Over love Over hate Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind Over fear and into freedom Into freedom From which we'll rise Over love Over hate Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind Over fear and into freedom Freedom, freedom Oh, rain on me Rain on me Rain on me
