Clannad – The Poison Glen lyrics

Way up there in the poison glen
The sun's going down on the misty mountain
And I'm watching
And wondering
Feeling something from long ago

Haunted echo that surrounds the glen
The heather creeping through
The burned out ruins
And I'm watching
And wondering
Feeling spirits of long ago

Who in the valley she'd the poison tear?
No one knows
An old legend of a mythical hero
And I'm watching
And wondering
Feeling something from long ago

May this vale be my silver lining
Pleasing nature with a heart's desire
The burned out ruins
And I'm watching
And wondering
Feeling everything from long ago

    Well now, its obviously a song about ancient nuclear war. You see, millions of years ago, people were cavemen. Aliens from several planets in outer space emigrated to earth & built a super civilization that was more modern than today's world. But, either the aliens started fighting amoung themselves, or with the earthlings & a nuclear war started. Whether it was a series of wars or one big, gut buster, we don't know. ! /3 of the aliens were anihilated, 1/3 went back into space, & 1/3 went underground, where they live to this day. Today, we have reinvented nuclear weapons again. Will history repeat itself again?
