JEFF BECK THROW DOWN A LINE LYRICS

Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos drowning in the stormy sea
Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos hanging in a nowhere tree
Have you got a place for me

Men are tied in chains of silence
I look on violence, up, down, left and right
Is there no hope of light
The peaceful hand that once caressed me
Hurts like the rest, because its turned to stone
Talons of steel have grown

Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos drowning in the stormy sea
Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos hanging in a nowhere tree
Have you got a place for me
Yeah, oh help me, yeah
Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos drowning in the stormy sea
Throw down a line, help a poor boy
Whos hanging in a nowhere tree
Have you got a place for me

See the moon, its getting nearer
But no more clearer than the earth below
What do we really know
I feel the stab of pain returning
Despair is burning in my heart again
Why dont they see the end, ooooh

Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos drowning in the stormy sea
Yeah, throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos hanging in a nowhere tree
Have you got a place for me

Throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos drowning in the stormy sea
Yeah, throw down the line, help a poor boy
Whos hanging in a nowhere tree
Have you got a place for me
