Artist/Band: Runrig
Lyrics for Song: Big Songs Of Hope And Cheer
Lyrics for Album: The Stamping Ground [2001]



The satellites are raining down

On the international roof

There's nothing secret

Nothing sacred any more.



All the soldiers of the world

Are turning history around

They're with me now

They're breaking down the door.



Pictures in a room

(I can't take it any more)

Have I awakened to a strange land?

Pictures in a room

(Somebody help me please)

'Cause I can't sing the pains of hope

In a torn world.



One mother's daughter's

Seen her brothers

Taken to the shadow lands.

Now she's waiting for six soldiers to return.



And another mother's daughter's down

On channel 21

She's opened up her love to let it burn.



And the satellites are raining down

On a Sunday afternoon

She's hoping for the world to take it all.

Where we face our sweetest demons

In the hands of flesh and love

She's aching and the stations of the fall.



Pictures in a room

(I can't take it any more)

Have I awakened to a strange land

(Somebody help me please)

'Cause I can't sing the pains of hope

In a torn world



And the companies say

"Give us more of these Big Songs of Hope and Cheer

Hits and hooks and riffs that shine as new."

And the refugees come in, live and dying

Miles across the snow

And there's nothing that this stunning world can do.



Pictures in a room...



Pictures in a room

(I can't take it any more)

Have I awakened to a strange land?

Pictures in a room

(Somebody help me please)

'Cause I can't sing the pains of hope

In a torn world
