Paolo Nutini-Iron Sky

I woke up today in a rebel mood! I wanted to hear something true. And I said to myself, wtf? Listen to the brand new song by Paolo Nutini "Iron Sky". It speaks the truth I hide inside me. Paolo Nutini is a Scottish artist with Italian roots. He is the definition of good timing and good luck. Nutini started to play music by acident. His first manager watched him perform also by accident because the actual performer wasn't on time. His carreer is still shinning. Only 27 years old and yet with great songwriting skills. His new album "Caustic Love" comes out in April and "Iron Sky" is one of the tracklist. With a big quote from Charlie Chaplin's speech from The Great Dictator, you can only feel familiar with the lyrics, the meanings and the symbolisms. Are we free? Do we have the power? Can we dream? Enjoy this beautiful performance live from The Abbey Road Studio.

Paolo Nutini-Iron Sky

We are proud individuals
Living for the city
But the flames
Couldn’t go much higher

We find God and religions
To bait us with salvation
But no one, no nobody
Can give you the power

To rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom

Oh, that’s life
That’s dripping down the walls
Of a dream that cannot breathe
In this harsh reality
Mass confusion spoon fed to the blind
Serves now to define our cold society

From which we’ll rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom

You’ve just got to hold on
You’ve just got to hold on

[Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Great Dictator]
“To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish... Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle!... You are men! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.... let us use that power - let us all unite.”

And we’ll rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom
Into freedom

From which we’ll rise
Over love
Over hate
Through this iron sky that’s fast becoming our mind
Over fear and into freedom
Freedom, freedom

Oh, rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me
