Final Breath (Ron Hynes) video

This could be the final breath,
This is life and death,
This is hard rock and water.

Out here where the wind has turned,
And the towers are burnin',
There is no returnin'.

We could fire the century,
Live the oldest of intensity,
Laughter and misery.

Out here between time and tide,
Between tears and elation,
Lies a secret nation.

The prayer to which we say amen,
Written with a poison pen.

This could be the final breath,
This could be the final strife,
Everyone's spark of life still shimmering.

Out here in the falling rain,
Who'll fan the flames,
When the final days are numbering?

The prayer to which we say amen,
Written with a poison pen,
Written with a poison pen.

This could be the final breath,
This is life and death,
This is hard rock and water.

Out here between wind and flames,
Between tears and elation,
Lies a secret nation.
Lies a secret nation.
