Cities In Dust Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Water was running children were running
You were running out of time
Under the mountain, a golden fountain
Were you praying at the Lares shrine?
But oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Oh, oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Verse 2
We found you hiding we found you lying
Choking on the dirt and sand
Your former glories and all the stories
Dragged and washed with eager hands
Verse 3
But, oh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Oh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Your city lies in dust
Verse 4
Water was running children were running
We found you hiding we found you lying
Water was running children were running
We found you hiding we found you lying
Verse 5
Your city lies in dust, my friend
Oh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Verse 6
Hot and burning in your nostrils
Pouring down your gaping mouth
Your molten bodies blanket of cinders
Caught in the throes
Verse 7
Oh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Verse 8
Oh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Verse 9
Your city lies in dust, my friend
Oh your city lies in dust, my friend
