lyrics

sunshine smiles a thousand miles
the warm wind lifts the birds up off the ground
summer grass cut short and sweet beneath my feet
the gravity holds me down
happy laughing people chase their children
racing madcap cross the lawn
lovers kiss with mouths wide open
sunset fades the shadows rule till dawn

sweet religion kingdom come
the world is ours and everyone has bones to hide
we all hold hands neath the sky above
a pound of freedom buys an ounce of love with eyes open wide
we’re all alone inside

moonlight paints the treetops
paints the leaves a silver green beneath the sky
a crisp wind bends the branches sweeping paper
that the children left behind
a flash of lightning cracks the dark
you wait for thunder all the world sits still
i watch through my reflection and the thunder comes
i feel a sudden chill
come what will

you fill your hear with hopes and dreams
like starry skies to submarines, behold the sweet unknown
we sing and dance, we cry in pain,
you chase the truth through pouring rain, you find an empty throne
we’re all inside alone

hmmm

mother rocks a baby girl
the future world breaths peaceful on her breast
college boys walk hand in hand
tonight’s the night they put their love to the test
rhythm brings direction
as i feel this siren song so sad and slow
fear’s the need to take control
courage just a knack for letting go
let it go

sweet religion kingdom come
the world is ours and everyone has bones to hide
we all hold hands neath the sky above
a pound of freedom buys an ounce of love with eyes open wide
we’re all alone inside

hmmm

pay up, pay down, pay off

all aboard, climb aboard the sad train
it starts out slow, then down you go
all aboard, climb aboard the mad train
it starts out wrong, turns sad to song

you fill your hear with hopes and dreams
like starry skies to submarines, behold the sweet unknown
we sing and dance, we cry in pain,
you chase the truth through pouring rain, you find an empty throne
we’re all inside alone
