"Whisper To A Scream" as written by and Ian Mcnabb....
Love come, down upon us 'till you flow like water,
Burning, with the hope of insight,
Feathered, look they're covered with a bright elation,
Stolen, in the sight of love,

We are, we are, we are but your children, finding our way
Around indecision, we are, we are, we are ever helpless,
Take us forever, a whisper to a scream

Birds Fly, in the eye of the faithless daughter,
Broken, at the bitter end,
Wasted, sacrifice for a new nirvana,
Night time, send us on our way

We are, we are, we are but your children, finding our way
Around indecision, we are, we are, we are ever helpless,
Take us forever, a whisper to a scream

A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream

We are, we are, we are but your children, finding our way
Around indecision, we are, we are, we are ever helpless,
Take us forever, a whisper to a scream

    General Commentanother lyrically descriptive and theatrical sung IWs release. this has the typical heavy drumming style common of many english early-mid 80s bands (esp. adam and the ants). sounds a lot like similar liverpudlian bands (echo & bunnymen, julian cope) of the time.
    like many of ian's songs, beautifully crafted lyrics. I always associated this as a spiritual song.

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong here and on most sites.

    It is "We are we are we are MATURE children..."
