Gazpacho – Choir of Ancestors


In the long line behind us of the fallen dominos Are the faceless men and women All the lives you will never know In the darkest nights I live through Hear them whisper in my dreams “We are the oak of a thousand branches and the roots have dug so deep” Hold on through your desert Oh hold on to the reins Oh hold on to wonder
Our story in your veins Once we were children Above us burned the stars And now we come to you in your darkest hour As you are who we are We would stare into our fires as you have done tonight Let the ashes know what’s right then you can decide ”Hold on you know what we know Your dreams are our own You’ll find out in time Oh hold on to memory Hold on to the edge Hold on to stories The decision that you made Oh find your direction Oh hang on for your life With yesterday just a blur of grey spinning in the wheels of time The Great Wall of China is going to crumble in the end And the graves that still surround it echo countless wasted men In the brotherhood of factories where the bonds are forged in steel By the hammer of redemption in the fires of gasoline So hold on to your brother Hold on to your team Oh fight your every hour ’cause when it hurts you start to win Oh hold on to something You can do it if you try There’s a wedge between the will and when But the walls are closing in We were thrown out of our lives and across a great divide But as long as you hold on You keep us alive

  • In the long line behind us of the fallen dominos
    Are the faceless men and women
    All the lives you will never know
    In the darkest nights I live through
    Hear them whisper in my dreams
    "We are the oak of a thousand branches
    and the roots have dug so deep"

    Hold on through your desert
    Oh hold on to the reins
    Oh hold on to wonder
    Our story in your veins

    Once we were children
    Above us burned the stars
    And now we come to you in your darkest hour
    As you are who we are

    We would stare into our fires
    As you have done tonight
    Let the ashes know what's right
    Then you can decide

    "Hold on you know what we know
    Your dreams are our own
    You'll find out in time"

    Oh hold on to memory
    Hold on to the edge
    Hold on to stories
    The decision that you made

    Oh find your direction
    Oh hang on for your life
    With yesterday just a blur of grey
    Spinning in the wheels of time

    The Great Wall of China
    Is going to crumble in the end
    And the graves that still surround it
    Echo countless wasted men

    In the brotherhood of factories
    Where the bonds are forged in steel
    By the hammer of redemption
    In the fires of gasoline

    So hold on to your brother
    Hold on to your team
    Oh fight your every hour ‘cause
    When it hurts you start to win

    Oh hold on to something
    You can do it if you try
    There's a wedge between the will and when
    But the walls are closing in

    We were thrown out of our lives
    And across a great divide
    But as long as you hold on
    You keep us alive
