Dan McCafferty and Pete Agnew from Nazareth, collaborate with Stevie Agnew and Hurricane Road in this powerful song about war.


A pallid son cast shadows down the east side of the block
I drifted on a sanguine sea by the ticking of the clock
It was on the eighth of August by the boulevard I strolled
Oppression wrapped itself in flags on a grey uncertain road

The night fell black with diamonds the streets bare and austere
A man lay cold as wreckage he stirred as I grew near
His gaze was black and empty no petition or decree
And the wolves and legislators all saw that it was me

Fascists spanned the road ahead carrying a cross
Heavenly choirs sang a hymn a song of Divine love
Statesmen lay there dreaming big pockets full of brass
Politicians circled on the right and ate the working class

The night grew cold and heavy the air was sharp with fear
War moved throughout the shadows the pledged hour was near
Diplomacy failed soundly strategic as it was
Condemning the misguided to a bloody cause

Above a silent underworld a marching mass began
Their heavy feet resounded and proclaimed the fall of man
