Flags Staked Upon This Hill
If I turn should I stay?
We won’t last the day.
Feel the odds in the dark,
Mouths reach, lips that ask.
Enjoy your peace on the run,
Feel the space that you have won.
Flags staked upon this hill,
You believed, this shame would kill.
Whoo, whoo, whoo.
In the middle of our night,
Taps drip, mind’s in flight.
Lazy heads in the ground,
Where sleep can’t be found.
I believe your pain’s a thrill.
Whoo, whoo, whoo, pain’s a thrill.
If I turn should I stay?
Whoo, whoo.
We paint our hidden trash, with
Broken hearts, then light a match.
Recklessly occupied,
Stoney faced, the silent cry.
I believe, I’ve had my fill.
Enjoy your peace on the run,
Feel the space, now you have won, yeah.
Flags staked upon this hill.
I believe now, this hole’s been sealed.
Whoo, whoo, whoo.
If I turn should I stay?
Whoo, whoo.
If I turn should I stay?
Whoo, whoo.
