Tombstone Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The night is dark, the moon is full
Across the blood red plain
And every step and every breath
Brings me nearer home
Verse 2
Those spirits watch me on my way
They whisper in the wind
And when the dawn lights up the sky
I'll see my land again
Verse 3
A hot wind blows the scrub and dust
Across the barren land
Well, the trees stand bare like skeletons
And the mountain's all torn down
Verse 4
The water holes are dry as bones
No birds are singing now
And faraway a city stands
Tombstones against the sky
Verse 5
Tombstones against the sky
Tombstones against the sky
Tombstones against the sky
