From father to son, the blood runs thin
Ooh, see faces frozen still against the wind
The seam is split, the coal face cracked
The lines are long, there's no going back
Through hands of steel and heart of stone
Our labor day has come and gone

And you leave me holdin' on
In Red Hill Town, see lights go down
I'm hangin' on, you're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting, I'm hangin' on
You're all that's left to hold on to

The glass is cut, the bottle run dry
Our love runs cold in the caverns of the night
We're wounded by fear, injured in doubt
I can lose myself, you, I can't live without

Yeah, you keep me holdin' on
In Red Hill Town, see the lights go down on
I'm hangin' on, you're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting, hangin' on
You're all that's left to hold on to, on to

We'll scorch the earth, set fire to the sky
We stoop so low, to reach so high
A link is lost, the chain undone
We wait all day for night to come
And it comes like a hunted child

I'm hangin' on
you're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting, I'm hangin' on
You're all that's left to hold on to

Love, slowly stripped away
Love, has seen its better day

Hangin' on
Let's go out on Red Hill
Let's go down on Red Hill
Let's go down on Red Hill Town
Let's go down on Red Hill
