From Father to Son
The blood runs thin
I 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
Yeah, you leave me holding on
In Red Hill Town
See lights go down
Hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to

Glass is cut
Bottle runs dry
Our love runs cold
In the caverns of the night
We're wounded by fear
Injured in doubt
I can lose myself
But I can't live without
Yeah, you keep me holding on
In Red Hill Town
See the lights go down
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting
Hanging on
All that's left to hold on to

We 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 hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm still waiting
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to

Love slowly stripped away
Love has seen a better day
Hanging on

Lights go out on Red Hill
Lights go down on Red Hill
Lights go down on Red Hill Town

Lights go down on Red Hill
Lights go down on Red Hill Town
Lights go down on Red Hill
