Oingo Boingo - Flesh 'N Blood Lyrics




Over time, I've come to feel
That everything must come apart, it seems
From the little child to the man of power
From the beggar to the angel of my dreams
From the thinnest thread, we are sewn together
From the finest string, we dangle over time
From the highest wire do we walk through fire
Should our balance ever falter
Should our steps be unaligned
Such a big storm, yeah; such a strong wind blowing
Such a loud voice calling for me to cross the line

[Chorus:]
But I'm not gonna give up the ghost
No, not gonna give up the ghost
I'm not gonna give up the ghost
No, not gonna give it up
'Cause I haven't the strength
To hold out too long
If we both hold on together,
We can make each other strong

After all—we're flesh 'n' blood
After all—we're flesh 'n' blood
After all—we're flesh 'n' blood
After all—we're flesh—

Drop the mask; take away the house
And forget about the income and the car
We're all the same underneath our shell
We've all been to hell, and we know what it's like
And we've shared each other's sins
We all know what it's like to give up the fight
We've all been ashamed at one time or another
We all have dreams and nightmares, too
When it all comes down, we'll look out for each other
(No one else will)

But when I hear the call,
When I feel the thirst,
When the catcher comes to take my soul,
He's gonna have to fight me first

[Chorus]

Every cloud has a silver lining
And every soul is tender to the touch
We are made of stone; we are made of steel
And we're all the same when we return to dust

But when I hear the call,
Yeah, when I feel the thirst
When the catcher comes to take my soul
He's gonna have to fight me first....

[Chorus, Out]
