ROGER WATERS lyrics - The Echoes Never Fade From That Fusillade

"The Echoes Never Fade From That Fusillade"

The echoes never fade from the fusillade
Lafayette fired upon
An unarmed crowd, six thousand strong
The fragile ship of State
Sinks beneath the waves
The crashing sea of blood
Drowns out the sound of the parade
The tidied up the Camps du Mars
They piled up the dead
The dead whose only crime had been
To dream of freedom
The dead who'd never get to see
The King would be restored instead

Ca Ira (2005)
