Toyah – Waiting lyrics

(Willcox / Bray)

Bones stand waiting
Beneath the unbroken sea
Warm ice paint the sky
In tranquility
Bones stand waiting
Waiting for epochracy

Sun rises
We're a sphere in flames
Bones rise to shade our eyes
But the sea becomes
The sea becomes the sea again
Now my planet it's in flames

My planet's at war
I feel a fire running through my mind
I was a warrior
But life's unkind
I'm talking to my kind

Trees, fields, life's serene
Now I find your life totally obscene
Goodbye goodbye, goodbye mankind

War! War! War!

My planet's at war
And my body's in flames.
