If it's colour or creed
or your old time religion
Well fighting for that

shows a pure lack of vision

Song Lyrics

Visions in Blue
from Quartet
Face in the window in the night
Caught for a second by the light
Ashes of memories still aglow (Only for you)
Portraits and pictures you once saw
Visions in blue

Read while the letters still remain
Sip from the wine of youth again
Oaths made in silence still return (Only for you)
Cast like a shroud you're clutching on
Visions in blue

Catch aimless smiles from passers by
Blistered and broken in reply
Breath seems to mist the hazy view (Only for you)
Tears coat your lifeless eyes with dew
Visions in blue
Visions in blue

Ashes of memories still aglow
Portraits and pictures you once saw

All Fall Down
from U-vox

When I was a boy there's a dream that I had
That a war if it's fought was for good against bad
And I woke up to find that the world had gone mad
And we'd all fall down

And I feel like a child again sitting observing
You're toying with power, your fingers are burning
You're pushing so hard that the worms won't be turning
We'll all fall down

While you try to pretend you're a God upon high
With your party ideals and your squeaky clean lies
When it comes to the crunch you're no smarter than I
And we'll all fall down

If it's colour or creed or your old time religion
Well fighting for that shows a pure lack of vision
The fight that we strive is the fight to survive
And we'll all fall down

Well look in the mirror and what do you see
An American, Russian, a soldier or me?
When you've all pressed the buttons just where will you be
When we all fall down?

It gets harder to see just what future's in store for us
Hard to see through all the wool you pull over us
Words that you give are just words to console us
We'll all fall down

And what will you do when you've pulled the release?
When the sound of the thunder has drowned out the pleas
'Cos after all that was your idea of peace
When we all fall down

No sun for a world that once stood so tall
No wind's going to blow and no rain's going to fall
No flowers for graves, in fact no graves at all
When we all fall down

Lament
from Lament

And just as my eyes start seeing
After all the pain
The twist in my life starts healing
Just to twist again
In stillness, in sorrow
Returns that softly sighing lament
Lament

And just as the smile's returning
After all the pain
The fire inside stops burning
Just to burn again
In moments of madness
Returns that softly sighing lament
Lament
