A Town called Judas

Oh Manchester

You dawn so grey

And open the blinds on another day

Scarlet Town echoes

Tangled up in blue

A world gone wrong

So we start anew

Rain

On Autumn leaves

Pain

Tugging at my sleeves

Traffic

Bustle

Street cars sing

Sirens wail

For what the day might bring

Far away

On a common green

In another place, a world unseen

I find my soul

My heart has wings

And leaps forth

Like those Roman Kings

Rain

On Autumn leaves

Pain

Tugging at my sleeves

Peace

Hope

And laughter

I lose my fears

For those long and wasted years
