Song Meaning
Verse 1
You awoke in a burning paper house
From the infinite fields of dreamless sleep
You return to Tiannammen
An eyewitness in a shroud
To see them fall, feel them yield
Reliving the terror of the crowd
Verse 2
Hold the whirlwind, don't let it blow
Just for a moment I seemed to know
Hold the whirlwind, don't let it blow
I seemed to know the ghost in you
Verse 3
The whisper of your scream
Sighed through the air
And faith the flag is torn and frayed
Infernal heat, glory in flame
Love was beaten and betrayed
Verse 4
In every step I hear your sobbing
Dare I break the shade with one caress
Dare I trespass to lift the veil
To touch the lips so soft and frail
Verse 5
Hold the whirlwind, don't let it blow
I seemed to know the ghost in you
Verse 6
Your captive heart's
The belief you share
With a kiss eternal
Spirits of the square
Verse 7
Hold the whirlwind, don't let it blow
Hope remains with the ghost in you
Hold the whirlwind, don't let it blow
I seemed to know the ghost in you
Verse 8
Don't let it blow
The ghost in you
The ghost in you
