Lieutenant – Belle Epoque lyrics

A day of rest is hardly ever - A day at rest's a callow sigh - A day at
Rest is hardly ever - Hardly ever sealed in time - The follies raged at
Night - Who's denied? - The furs and feathers and orchids shine on -
Passers by - Then a railway is laid - And the horses are well fed - There's
Lust for a uniform - And a grand parade - The summer guns mark how they
Lost the belle epoque - The railway stays stays the one way sound of shots
- A gilded age has hardly ever - Not embraced its tragic flaw - The
Children sleep safely at night - Sweet, pronounced - The park is full, the
Trees in bloom - Bellies full and hearts alive - The summer guns mark how
They lost the belle epoque - The railway stays stays the one way sound of
Shots - They dug a trench then discovered how to fill it - The bread goes
Bad later than a spare bullet - They discovered, discovered how to fill it
- Faster than a spare bullet - A palace untested decays - A heart at rest
Is merely fallow - No, this heart is simply asking - To be aquitted from
The gallows - The summer guns mark how they lost the belle epoque - The
Railway stays the one way sound of shots - The summer guns mark how they
Lost the belle epoque - The railway stays the one way sound of shots
