(barry mason)[a side of columbia db 7766, 1965]The day will come when out of empty spaceA flash of fire will light the children’s faceHopelessly, their last tears they will cryBe too late to ask our leaders whyThe day will come, a day of sorrowA day we’ll see them strollin’ out to tomorrow.The song of life that once we knew so wellWill not be heard as we’re led into hellDeath is close, yes I can see the signAnd down your street the blood will flow like wineThe day will come, a day of sorrowA day we’ll see them strollin’ out tomorrowThe day will come and swallow up the sunWe can’t escape, we’ve got nowhere to runThe generals must be found some work to doThe medals must be bought by me and you, yeahThe day will come of pain and sorrowAnd we’ll see them strollin’ out tomorrowThe day will comeThe day will comeThe day will come
