Paolo Nutini – Iron Sky lyrics

We are proud individuals
Living for the city
But the flames
Couldn't go much higher

We find God and religions
To paint us with salvation
But no one, no nobody
Can give you the power

To rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom

Oh, that's life
That's dripping down the walls
Of a dream that cannot breathe
In this harsh reality
Mass confusion spoon fed to the blind
Serves now to define our cold society

From which we'll rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom

You've just got to hold on
You've just got to hold on

[Charlie Chaplin's speech from The Great Dictator]
“To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish... Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle!... You are men! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.... let us use that power - let us all unite.”

And we'll rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom
Into freedom

From which we'll rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that's fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom
Freedom, freedom

Oh, rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me

    We each need to find the power and love within ourselves. No one else is going to hand it to us. We must rise above the lies and duplicity of our society, which is purposefully feeding us mass confusion, feeding us with chemicals. Nothing is as it appears, we need to see the fabric of the matrix and escape into freedom and create a better future full of love and compassion, equality and creativity. The future is a bright jewel we just need to clear our minds and reach out to love.

    This song is ever more relevant today. Take a look at the political world, human rights, trade agreements, rich getting richer. Now cry conspiracy theory, yes conspiracy theory, check out homeless politics in USA on video search engines, look at the FEMA camps popping up, this song speaks about the common people without the power over their lives being controlled by power and money hungry people. Don't just think conspiracy, take the time to educate yourselves.
    Then take comfort in the song that even though dark days are due, mankind (humankind) will always prevail if we spread love.
