Dead Air - CHVRCHES



The Experience: You're fighting for love, for ideas, but sometime they seem like so much dead air... Are your ideals worth fighting and dying for?

Music video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of Dead Air: There is a strength in enduring... but we are disappearing. CHVRCHES looks inside a fighter's heart - in this the Mockingjay's heart - and paints both sides of the picture. Ideals are worth fighting for, and millions of people have fought and died for them - We hold up to an idea. However, ideas, ideals, and dreams are also ephemeral - they're made of hope. And how strong is that? It may be strong enough for Katniss Everdeen, but is it strong enough for you? The fine line between hope and despair is often defined by things as simple as love, friendship and willpower.

Ask yourself: Are there dreams and ideals that are worth hoping for, even when you feel like victory is impossible?

LYRICS:

I will never believe what they say
There is a strength in enduring
They never speak for themselves
We are disappearing

You will be all that I seek
In a twisted light
I would live inside you
Words will be all that I keep
In an open space
They would live inside you

We hold up to an idea
And we'll fight what we can't see
We just hold up to an idea
We keep going till we can't hear
(Dead air)
(x2)

We a- we a-are
We are all just dead air (x4)

This is a call to your arms
To take on mind over matter
Replacing fist over fist
We are disappearing

You will be all that I seek
In a twisted light
I would live inside you
Words will be all that I keep
In an open space
They would live inside you

We hold up to an idea
And we'll fight what we can't see
We just hold up to an idea
We keep going till we can't hear
(Dead air)
(x2)

We a- we a-are
We are all just dead air
(x8)
