Don't Slip Away - Cyrus Clarke

    In the darkened alleys of circumstance
    The bastards of war await their chance
    Where your back is strung with ignorance
    And the conscience of knowledge lies in a trance.

    Don't slip away or plead in vain
    Just ask the sun to stop the rain.

    In the trenches of freedom the TV is on
    Technology whistles a new battle song
    Where having a job means building a bomb
    Which side of defense do we belong?

    [Repeat Chorus]

    In the bright shadowed field of remembrance
    Where nothing is lost and our children dance
    Where to know is to give is to understand
    And the heart is delivered from the armies of man

    [Repeat Chorus]
