lyrics

Could I record this silence?
Could I keep feeling at ease?
Oh when am I going back again?
How long will this country hold me?

And will you ever find me?
Have I changed enough to disappear?
Fighting the tales they tell about me
How long will this country hold me?

I found a dying siren
She’d louvered her last king man
I found myself in the hollow alley
How long will this country hold me?

A breath of music consumed me
I’m eager to let it all out
Cause they all sing with greater beauty
How long will this country hold me?
