Silver Lining.
Take this silver lining keep it in your own sweet head
Shine it when the night is burning red
Shine it in the twighlight
Shine it on the cold cold ground
Shine it till these walls come tumbling down

We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope now
Can you tell me why time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep

Step into the silence take it in your own two hands
And scatter it like diamonds all across these lands
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Blaze it in the morning wear it like an iron skin

Only things worth living for
Innocence and magic, amen

We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope now
Can you tell me why time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep

We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope now
Can you tell me why time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Know that the light don't sleep

Time after time they drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Know that the light don't sleep.
