For our fourth song we used Damien Rice as inspiration. I worked off a theme from Steven Sondheim’s Into the Woods with Food for the Saints’ song There Are Giants in the Sky.
Here are the lyrics:
If we don’t leave this night, then We’ll forsake the dawn
I don’t trust others to make it right, or use me like a pawn
Beanstalks aren’t so odd, to unchartered skies
When the masses go subterranean, where they surely will die
Let’s choose where bird fly
Take off the scaffolding
And repane the windows in turn
We’re not going to let silly giants
Tell us what we heard
Are my futures up or down? Is my jacket on fire now?
Since when did we just choose to bow? There’s no sense in it all.
Let’s choose where birds fly
There are giants in the sky
There are big tall terrible giants in the sky
