"Birds of Paradise" as written by and Martin Coyle....
Don’t let the fear in
Don’t let the hatred through the door
And the fever, like a spider, walk your skin
Can you still hear him?
Still preaching science at the screen
While the doctors try to cover the sin
Oh it’s a mad world honey
And this crazy little man keeps spinning it and spinning it again
Don’t let the fear in
Don’t keep your naked little heart, trapped, beating in the cage its in

We’re just two cats sitting on a hot tin roof
We’re just two young hearts running down the back streets like we never went to school
We’re just soldiers fighting in a war against our own advice
We’re just birds of paradise

Beyond the white light
You don’t know if heavens in your mind
And if hell is just a twinkle in your eye
You’ve led a short life
Short from the moment your were born
To the moment that the sun filled the sky
Remember long nights honey?
When we were kids and love was ours to find
You’ve led a short life
Not even Valium can kill that k k k k kick inside

We’re just two cats sitting on a hot tin roof
We’re just two young hearts running down the back streets like we never went to school
We’re just soldiers fighting in a war against our own advice
We’re just birds of paradise

So hold on
I know sometimes this crazy world can tear the flesh from our bones
Please hold on
And when sometimes you’re not yourself be glad at least you’re someone
Old Soldier
Lead us home

We’re just two cats sitting on a hot tin roof
We’re just two young hearts running down the back streets like we never went to school
We’re just soldiers fighting in a war against our own advice
We’re just birds of paradise
We’re just birds of paradise
We’re just birds of paradise
