Lyrics

The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms, no matter where they've gone

They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way?

Still the window burns, time so slowly turns
Someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames, do you feel your names?
Can't you hear your babies crying?

(Mama, they try and break me)
(Still they try and break me)

'Scuse me while I tend to how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real

Now deservingly this easy chair
But the rocking stops by wheels of despair

Don't want your aid
But the fist I've made for years won't hold or feel
No I'm not all me
So please excuse me while I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams that ever last through the night
So build the wall behind it crawl and hide until it's light
So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames, can't you hear your names?
Can't you hear your babies crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams that ever last the night
So build a wall behind it crawl and hide until it's light
So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try, mama, they try

Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try, mama, the try
