Hanging on, it's breaking
The ethos will fall
Among the glass and fire
We buried them all

So they come down from the north
Traveling at such a great speed
Church bells are ringing alone
You should take cover and run

Below on the ridge
It's like syringe
The flight of the Flynns
Guiding your mind

When all the dust filled the air
They had arrived on the scene
The church and the buildings are down
You should take cover and run

Relax on the ridge
It's like syringe
The flight of the Flynns
Guiding their mind

    My Interpretation
    Firstly i have to say this is probably my favourite other lives song every. Its something about the whale like guitar and beautiful melody that makes me feel so very nostalgic and emotional. I'm not sure exactly what its about, but i think that it is something to do with the band moving on (flying) from their old band Kunek, after one of their members left. This makes sense as their album as Kunek was called Flight of the Flynns. By the way this song is called flight of the Finns, and not flight of the Flynns. Flight of the Flynns is the name of Kunek's album.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.
