Red August

(W Duncan & R Watson

Loosen the bond that binds the fading empire of desire
Dusk will soon embrace the godless sky of crimson fire
And in the dark descending, no star to mark my way
Through lonely fields of silence comes the gray of distant day
 
Red August, Red August for better or worse
The citadel crumbles in the red August dust
 
Lunging blindly onward as the mighty engine dies
A million voices shout for joy while all the time I cry
Euphoria surrounds me turmoil flows in waves
New life beats in broken hearts but love fills many graves
 
Innocence is no escape no shelter from the pain
From lies and greed and careless men
Who break their word again
And again and again and again and again.............
