Track Name: Holocaust
Holocaust © Derek McCorkell 2000

Verse1
I dreamt that I was standing. In a large deserted square,
But on closer inspection,there were thousands of us there.
What used to be warm flesh & blood,took a while to understand,
Lie scattered all around me here,just like worthless piles of sand'
A Holocaust of man's design was the culprit here I fear,
The only beating heart was mine , it was all that I could hear.
Is this our future God forbid,that we be forever damned,
Annihillation seems assured,and all by our own hand.

Verse 2
Can you visualise, the awful sight ,the sky a murky grey.
Where nothing grows, & it's hard to tell,when night becomes the day,
A silence so unbearable,with no sound to be heard,
No cattle lowing in the field, no sweetly singing bird.
It only took mere minutes then, to realise our fears,
And obilterate all sings of life,that took millions of years.
Is this our future God forbid,that we be forever damned,
Annihillation seems assured,and all by our own hand.

Verse 3
We've got to learn to compromise,and see the other's point of view,
Do onto each other as , you would have them do to you,
Extend the hand of fellowship, instead of making war,
Or this Earth we love & hold so dear, ----- Will be no more.

repeat verse 3 & end.
