Upon Their Shoulders [single]

by The Last Domino



This song was written for the 2018 miniseries, Giants Do Fall - a drama that serves to expose child abuse within the foster care system.


We never had much to our names
A sordid history and dirty pairs of shoes
No special birthright we could claim
But lives with each other were the only ones we’d choose

So when the lions come
To gnash and bite
We won’t be standing on loose boulders
And when the giants come
To boast their height
We will dance upon their shoulders

We walked together through the flames
Lights that provided darkness, and cackled at our youth
Our spirits never fully drained
No one or thing could leave an everlasting bruise
