Birds Fly (Whisper to a Scream) ~ The Icicle Works

The Icicle Works were an independent English rock band of the 1980s. Named after the 1960 short story “The Day The Icicle Works Closed” by science fiction author Frederik Pohl, The Icicle Works joined Liverpool’s early 1980s ‘neo-psychedelia’ wave, which also propelled Echo & the Bunnymen and The Teardrop Explodes to stardom.

Love comes, down upon us
Till you flow like water
Burning, with the hope of insight
Feathered, look they’re covered
With a bright elation,
Stolen, in the sight of love

We are, we are,
We are but your children,
Finding our way around indecision,
We are, we are
We are ever helpless,
Take us forever,
A whisper to a scream
Birds fly, in the eye
Of the faithless daughter,
Broken, at the bitter end
Wasted, sacrificed for a new Nirvana
Night time, sends us on our way

We are, we are
We are but your children
Finding our way around indecision
We are, we are
We are ever helpless
Take us forever
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream

We are, we are
We are but your children
Finding our way around indecision
We are, we are
We are ever helpless
Take us forever
A whisper to a scream
Whispered
We are we are we are
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream

We are, we are
We are but your children
Finding our way around indecision
We are, we are
We are ever helpless
Take us forever
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream
A whisper to a scream

About DJ Allyn

DJ Allyn is a burned out radio guy who went on to become a burned out sound engineer for a few Seattle area grunge bands in the 1980s and 1990s. Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
