Rattle That Lock Lyrics

Whatever it takes to break
Gotta do it
From the burning lake or the eastern gate
You'll get through it

Rattle that lock, lose those chains
Rattle that lock, lose those chains
Rattle that lock, lose those chains
Rattle that lock

Let's go do it
Have it all our way
Go back to where we blew it
And lose our heads along the way

So long sin, au revoir chaos
If there's a heaven, it can wait
So long sin, au revoir chaos
If there's a heaven

Rattle that lock
Rattle that lock, lose those chains
Rattle that lock
Rattle that lock, lose those chains

And all the other travellers
Become phantoms to our eyes
Furies and the revellers
The Fallen angels in disguise

No discord, chance or rumour
Is going to interrupt this place
No discord, chance or rumour
To interrupt this

So let's get to it
It's calling like a flame
Through the darkness and the night
The world suspended on a golden chain

No discord, chance or rumour
Is going to interrupt this place
No discord, chance or rumour
To interrupt this

Rattle that lock
Rattle that lock, lose those chains
Rattle that lock
Rattle that lock
Rattle that lock, lose those chains

The recurring phrase "Rattle that lock, lose those chains" symbolizes breaking free from the constraints that hold us back. It could be past mistakes, societal norms, or personal fears. The song encourages us to confront these challenges head-on, no matter how difficult they may seem. The references to 'sin' and 'chaos' suggest a desire for peace and order, reinforcing the idea of leaving behind negativity and turmoil. Ultimately, Gilmour urges us to embrace life's journey with courage and determination, even if it means facing our demons or going against the grain.
