Safety Chain Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Hanging on like hell to the safety chain
Lifebuoy crash lands in a vale of tears
All the lovers are in retreat
On the edge of the nervous street

So deaf to the call of the wild
Deaf to the first born's whispering plea
Expanding frame the city is in heat
Burning at the edges of the lonely street

But I want to hold your precious head
I will not leave you nor pretend
I'm going to hold you to the end

Hey mama didn't know we'd end up here
The snapshot is all tiles and red walls
Down at the squatter's camps they cannot compete
The shepherd has been bound up by his hands and his feet

Make love make peace make haste, it's a slow release
Great changes gonna carry you
Make love make peace make haste, it's a slow release
Great changes gonna carry you

Songwriters
James Moginie;Peter Garrett
