I am the ghost of haunting hope
A trailing phantom
Some withering wisp of smoke slipping by
And these are my words flung through the sky
Trailing red like a cape
Longing to fly
On this, their thirteenth try
This prison of mine is to carry alone
The light of one red sun
Beneath my skin
And never, ever go home
To watch the ravens fly so very far, far away

Chorus:
Fortress of solitude,
I'll stay here, I'll make you all believe
And if my words have forked no lightning
Never shall I sleep again

With sickening speed, red hearts on blue sleeves
The bullets of your words
Could scarcely set their teeth into me
But I am made frail in one single bound
My traitorous soil
Slings me so far down without a sound
To watch the ravens fly so very far, far away

Chorus

Never going to stop, not a break in my stride
Never let this cancer eat from inside
Raise the flag high with fists to the sky
I'll finish this or this is goodbye
Spies to the right set their claws to kill me
Lies from the left clasp their jaws on the guilty
I'll break free, I'll break free
Just you watch me

So discouraged, so dismayed
See the poison, dripping from their blades
There is lightning left in these words
I will still fly, rising with the birds
I have carried the sun in my skin
I cannot stop, I cannot win
Forked tongues, forcing me to kneel
As if I was no man made of steel
What if these weak words that I have tripped on
Sing that I am the last son of Krypton?
I hate you all, I hate you all
This will never sleep
