La da dat dah
La da dat dah

The crickets now chirping loud about the town
A storm it is approaching
And they don't know which way to go, which way to turn
They're wishing and they're hoping
And in my head I can see the killing fields
Where David slew Goliath
But in that den where Daniel he prayed to God
The troubles multiplying

(Aaah)
And you can kick and you can scream
But you can't build a fortress
'Cause that exactly what it will take
To stay away from me

For many days I contemplate sore afraid
Trying to fix my problems
But if I were to run away please tell me this
Then how could I solve them
And in my head, in my head I can see yea
Where David slew Goliath
But in that den where Daniel he prayed to God
The troubles multiplying

(Aaah)
And you can kick and you can scream
But you can't build a fortress
'Cause that exactly what it will take
To stay away from me
And you must pray twice as hard
Just to curb your hunger
That's how I know that humankind
Is born to suffering

And you can kick and you can scream
But you can't build a fortress
'Cause that exactly what it will take
To stay away from me (yea)
And you must pray twice as hard
Just to curb your hunger
That's how I know that humankind
Is born to suffering

Or you can run under the sun the chosen one
Just try to run, just try to run
You can't take your love away from
Or you can fly up to the sky in the fading light
No dragonflies or alibis could take your love away from, me
You can't take your love away from, me
