lyrics

TONIGHT WE'RE GONNA FLY

She said if war were a woman
It would be differently done
If war were a woman
The word would come before the Gun
But even here in New Jersey
Words don't always satisfy, I said
And all of this television
Well it has only made you cry

She ran outside with all those blues
Down to the beach without her shoes
And whispered to the twilight sky
Tonight we've gotta fly above this din

Butterflies taste with their feet, she understands
And she likes to sink her toes into the sand
And feel the foam caress her ankles
As the bubbles converge to dissolve her shackles

Well I was gonna save this but
I've been building this machine
Two massive wings, two stabilizers and
Two seats in between

Could maybe use more testing but
God knows what lies past today
All I know is that we'll have to risk it
Cause we've got to get away

They're not gonna lock us down
Though they'll distract us and we'll spin
We'll sing our hot-wired lullabies
Tonight we're gonna fly above this din

I pray
I wanna thank you Lord for the crossfire having missed us
And for all the songs that grabbed us by the ears and kissed us
I wanna thank you Lord for the crossfire having missed us
And for all the songs that grabbed us by the ears and kissed us


They're not gonna lock us down
Though they'll distract us and we'll spin
We'll sing our hot-wired lullabies
Tonight we're gonna fly

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
