Hawking - Leave You Behind Lyrics

Inside of these walls I've built a good life
They said to get out but they're wasting their time
We won't make it through if we stay here
But we've got everything that we hold dear
My grandmother told me to always keep smiling
To practice for the day when my sister stopped crying
I've seen it time and time again
You're a fool to think you're safe from them
[Chorus 1]
But I'm not afraid of their airborne disaster
If it doesn't kill me it can call me its master
I've lived through hell for my own kind
There's no way, there's no way
There's no way I could leave you behind
[Verse 2]
They can put up their fences and call us inhuman
Force us to abandon our lives as we knew them
But they can't take us anywhere
We've got everything we love right here
I saw how my father took care of my sister
Mathilda's been gone for 2 years and I miss her
But now I have to miss him too
I swear to god I'll live to honor you
[Chorus 2]
I'm not afraid of their airborne disaster
We've got all we need between the nails and the plaster
I've lived through hell for my own kind
There's no way, there's no way
There's no way I could leave you behind
[Bridge]
And I pray for the good lord to fix this
And put me to sleep
Go to sleep and make the silence, my mistress
Cause it won't ever leave my mind
Silent screams and the look in your eyes
Smell of snow while your hand clung to mine
Your last breath when they took you away and I left you behind
[Chorus]
But I'm not afraid of their airborne disaster
If it doesn't kill me it can call me its master
I've lived through hell for my own kind
There's no way, there's no way
There's no way I could leave you...
And I'm not afraid of their airborne disaster
We've got all we need between the nails and the plaster
I've lived through hell for my own kind
There's no way, there's no way
There's no way I could leave you behind
