ABOUT THIS SONG
//Civil war battlefield seen through a young man's eyes. Inspired by Upton Sinclair's "Manassas - Theirs be the guilt", a powerful novel about a young southerner with great ideals (illusions?) during the civil war.//

lyrics

Dead bodies now and then / dead bodies now and then

He wants to run away from the streams of blood that pour into the ground
From the horses gaping bellies, from their dead wide open eyes
From wounded young men crying, from their wild wide open eyes

Men in the woods trying to hide, men with no jaw, men torn to pieces
Then a poor house: the old woman's shot dead, the little girl cries and kittens play
As if nothing ever happened
He fires up into the sky

Forms shrouded in the smoke/ Scattered army things

Forms shrouded in the smoke, scattered army things
The battlefield still echoes with the sound of guns
Campfires glow far away
He holds on to the trees trying to guess which side has won

A lost and lonesome young boy
Walks alone in a wasteland
Theirs be the guilt, theirs be the guilt
A lost and lonesome young boy
Walks alone in a wasteland
Theirs be the guilt, theirs be the guilt
