about

Bolted Down (AG); since my father died I often felt numb and unable to
express my feelings, like an airplane, once exploring the skies, but now rusty
and pinned to the ground. It's a bit like my father must have felt as a
paraplegic : an extravagant and venturous man "bolted down" to wheelchair
and bed.

lyrics

Bolted Down

Now that you've gone
home to the other side
I just feel numb.
I'm broken but no one
can see inside
these missile proof walls.
Bolted down wings and
rusty old hinges
carry me home,
through times of comfort and
wonderful places we've known.

We ventured across the skies,
travelled a thousand miles
for places to roam.
I'm worn out, just halfway there.
I need to climb up these stairs
to find my way home.
Bolted down wings and
rusty old hinges
carry me home,
through times of comfort and
wonderful places we've known.
