Monsters Calling Home

This song is by Run River North and appears on the album Run River North (2014).

Original video
They're walking to the
Beat of a broken drum
Digging for worth in
A land under a foreign sun

The children call bitter words
Of a strange tongue
Hearts down, they're walking
Heavy until the dying's down

I see their hands
Some hold a bottle
Some hold back
And in their eyes
A wave of light
In a sea of black

Their voices low
Trembling for blood to drink
And what they know
Of a deep that cries to

Deep in the night
The night oh they call
They call
In the night, the night
Oh they call
They call now

Oh hear the monsters calling home
No they don't wanna be alone, but the
Closet they keep closed
Swallow the key so that nobody
Nobody knows how they beat

They beat their chest to the sounds
Of their broken hearts
Crying wolf under sheep's skins
Reaching out their claws

Stomping their feet
Never letting up the dust
Choking up their lungs
Told to be a father
Growing up into a fatherless

Son, oh my son, won't you come, won't you come
Son, oh my son, won't you come, won't you come
Son, oh my son, won't you come, won't you come
Son, oh my son, won't you come, won't you come

Oh hear the monsters calling home
No they don't wanna be alone, but the
Closet they keep closed
Swallow the key so
Nobody knows how they beat
