Song Lyrics

From father to son
The blood runs thin
Oh see faces frozen still
Against the wind

The seam is split
The coal face cracked
The lines are long
There’s no going back
Through hands of steel
And heart of stone
Our labour day
Has come and gone

And you keep us holding on.
In Red Hill Town
As the lights go down

Hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
I’m still waiting
Hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to

The glass is cut
The bottle run dry
Our love runs cold
In the caverns of the night
We’re wounded by fear
Injured in doubt
I can lose myself
You I can’t live without

Yeah you keep me holding on
Red Hill Town
As the lights go down on

Hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
Hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to

We scorch the earth
Set fire to the sky
Stoop so low to reach so high

A link is lost
The chain undone
We wait all day
For night to come
And it comes
Like a hunted child

Hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
I’m still waiting
Hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to

Love… slowly stripped away
Love… seen a better day
Love… slowly stripped away
Love…

Let’s go down on Red Hill. Oh oh oh.
Let’s go down on Red Hill Town.
Let’s go down on Red Hill Town.
