Woodkid – Iron Lyrics (Quintet version)

May 8, 2014
Deep in the ocean, dead and cast away
Where innocence is burned, in flames
A million miles from home, I’m walking ahead
I’m frozen to the bone, I am…

A soldier on my own, I don’t know the way
I’m riding up the heights of shame
I’m waiting for the call, the hand on the chest
I’m ready for the fight and fate

The sound of iron shocks is stuck in my head
The thunder of the drums dictates
The rhythm of the falls the number of dead
The rising of the horns ahead

From the dawn of time to the end of days
I will have to run away
I want to feel the pain and the bitter taste
Of the blood on my lips again

The steady burst of snow is burning my hands,
I’m frozen to the bone, I am
A million miles from home, I’m walking ahead
I can’t recall your eyes, your face
