Will you lead the world to the edge of darkness?
With words as bright as torches
When your foot steps into the night
It’s the earth the fire scorches
Your face shines like a crusader shield
And you think you stand on Mt Sinai
As your chiefs prepare the battlefields
Where eagles circle in the smoky sky
As you drive your knife into madness itself
And you shoot your gun at insanity
Like a shadow it moves with bodiless stealth
As a bloodless thing you can’t see
When love is covered in blood and tears
Wrapped up in the shawls of revenge
How will you calm your animal fears?
Or stop its sacrifice at this Stonehenge
