Ruins (毀滅) - Cat Stevens

Its so quiet in the ruins walking though the old town

Stones crumbling under my feet I see smoke for miles around

Oh its enough to make you weep all that remains of the main street

Up in the park on sunday dogs chasing and the children played

Old man with his head down can't see nothing more around no

 

But he remembers how it used to be back in the old days

So nice to see you coming back in this town again

Its nice to see a friendly face come peeping through having tea

 

In the afternoon so nice to see you coming back in this town again

 

Ah but its all changed winter turned on a man

Came down on day when no-one was looking and it

Stole away the land people running scared losing hands

Dodging shadows of falling sand buildings standing like empty shells

And nobody helping no-one else

Young child with his hands high ain't able to see no reason why no

But he remembers how it used to be back in the old days

So nice to see you coming back in this town again

Its nice to see a friendly face come peeping through

You'd better know what you're going through now

You came back here to find your home is a black horizon

That you don't recognize evil destruction has taken everything

You'd better walk on the side while you're still walking

Just keep on walking on down the street keep your distance

From the people you meet oh lord and you'd better watch your eyes

Cause if smoke gets in them baby you won't rise again

 

Wheres it leading to freedom at what cost

People needing more and more and its all getting lost

I want back I want back

Back to the time when the earth was green

And there was no high walls and the sea was clean

Don't stop that sun to shine its not yours or mine no
