This amazing song is found on When You Return Part 1 and Get Out (Re-issue)

Lyrics are as follows

In the chorus, there is some backing singing and cant make out what is said? Can anyone help? At the end of the lyrics' I added a download, just click link and press download

Artist: Capercaillie

(Writer - Manus Lunny)

Appears On: When You Return Part 1 and Get Out (re-issue)

Language: English        

Lyrics:

Walk a lonely foreign street
Hunger sets the pace
Unfriendly eyes that follow you
And judge you by your race
To be beaten down by something blind
Make solid thoughts run wild
A mother's tears fight the fears
On the loss of another child

Trapped by fiction
Climb to see a cloudy sky
Where the turn of a screw scars
And pains your memory
Surrounded by a wall of steel
With thoughts so dark and cold
A solitary day grows dim
Battered hope that grows no more

Chorus:

And again you learn to live
Find a place you know
And all our strength we give
To a distant hill our thoughts will go

Cushioned by the outside world
Thoughts imprisoned in your mind
Surrounded by your closest friends
Helps the bitterness unwind
And now when beasts nap at your feet
It's only when you're dreaming
And as the pain starts to leave
Begins the agony of healing

(Chorus 2x)

To a distant hill our thoughts will go

I think the backup singers are singing essentially the same words as the lead singer. To be exact, here is what I hear them sing:

And again you learn to live
And all our strength
Our thoughts will go

I didn't listen to the whole song. I only listened to a sample found at Allmusic.com, which happened to contain the chorus.

No that is what Karen is singing; but the backing is different :)
