lyrics

THE DISTANT THUNDER

fly maker of mercy let me fly
earthbound standing alone
searching the skies for my home
oh i hear the distant thunder

sending up sailors on false wings they come down
into the cities of iron, pleasure and cold
but the dove of peace was placed here in this ground
and the prayer for rain was hidden in the heart
the days are dark now waiting for the heart

fly maker of mercy let me fly
earthbound standing alone
searching the skies for my home
oh i hear the distant thunder

walking for years on the roads that go nowhere
we are jaded, unkind, hungry and torn
now we’re burning in the house where we were born
every flame another desire where is the one who can put out this fire

fly maker of mercy let me fly
earthbound standing alone
searching the skies for my home
oh i hear the distant thunder
