Flogging Molly The Cradle Of Humankind Lyrics


The sum of all my fears like dread are from demons yet to come

All the things I should’ve mentioned wave goodbye and “we’ll see you soon”

It’s the words I’ve never written that say more about myself

Where empty is the promise lies a pocket full of doubt

So may the road I’ve yet to take

Leave a smile across my face

‘Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind

For I still belong in the cradle of humankind

Though my time may be less traveled than those that came before

We’re all exiles here in madness kicking down each other’s door

Unforgiven is the lesson we pour upon ourselves

When a helping hand is needed, slap in the face is what we get

But I will fight for this right and each moment of it’s life

‘Till I witness all the differences yet to heal

So may the road I’ve yet to take

Leave a smile across my face

‘Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind

For I still belong in the cradle of humankind

Sometimes drink till I am empty, grab another from the shelf

Though I’m stuck in conversation, it’s with myself and no one else

Never listen to much reason till I hear it’s a last call

When I notice that my ghost is still dancing on his ow

So may the road I’ve yet to take

Leave a smile across my face

‘Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind

For I still belong in the cradle of humankind

Wherever you go

(The sun sets to rise

On a day that you find

You Struggle to be

But you’re already there)

Wherever you go

Wherever you go

(A passionless life

Has no words to write

It’s a body that’s broken

And breathless of life)

Oh, wherever you go

There’ll always be a roof and a dream above our head

As long as I’m breathing, then forever I’ll be

Ah, I will fight for this right and each moment of it’s life

‘Till I witness all the differences yet to heal

So may the road we’ve yet to take

Leave a smile across our face

‘Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind

We still belong in the cradle of humankind
