Mike Heron – Redbone lyrics

Krendo, how long we been fighting
How long we been dying
And still we return
Krendo, we gypsies in starships
We just don't know what fear is
We've died too many times
But this time you've got me, it's one up for you
This body is done

Childhood, another damn childhood
Sure I know that you'll miss me
But don't count the years
One day you'll see my starship
Making your heart beat just a little bit faster
When old Redbone flies again

Stand aside yeah, pale mother of mine
Your boy is going
There ain't no force field that you have
That's strong enough to keep him back
Stand aside yeah, pale mother of mine
I played the blue-eyed boy for you
Just as long as I could do
And now I'm through

Krendo, how long we been fighting
How long we been dying
And still we return
Krendo, we gypsies in starships
We just don't know what fear is
Guess we've died too many times
Look out here comes my starship
Making your heart beat just a little bit faster
Old Redbone flies again
