Ashes Ashes

Ashes and dragon’s breath - bright things in the sky, childhood games, battlegrounds, cemeteries.

Lyrics:

Long long days, summer holidays, staying up late
green wood on the bonfire, we danced around the flames
street lights and stars, starry eyed - backdrop to the black sky
and we had dragon’s breath
when we sang the rhyme behind the game
ashes, ashes, all fall down
ashes, ashes, all fall down

Filth and fatigues by the ration stove, cooking up a brew
bivouac canvas, we camped down behind the dunes
rocketfire, firework, artillery – backdrop to the red sky
and we had dragon’s breath
when we sang barrack room ballad tunes
ashes, ashes, all fall down
ashes, ashes, all fall down

Old soldiers, leather boots, loose suits hanging on a rack of bones
gravel in the graveyard, we are gathered on parade
sunlight and angels pale and silent - backdrop to the cold sky
and we had dragon’s breath
when we sang and the wreaths were laid
ashes, ashes, all fall down
ashes, ashes, all fall down
ashes, ashes, all fall down
