Aldermaston - Stephen Duffy & The Lilac Time

Easter Sunday came late that year
We thought the future would disappear
The bomb would hasten and not deter
Our crucifixion - nuclear

I was born along the Aldermaston March
Now I'm older and still marching through the dark
For democracy will you walk with me?
At least we'll know we're not alone

It was a Cold War but they were lying
That AIDS and Heroin would see us dying
Industrial terror was the crime
They killed the world before it's time

I was born along the Aldermaston March
Now I'm older and still marching through the dark
For morality will you walk with me?
At least we'll know we're not alone

In your bedroom where you prayed
We kissed, we made love and then we laid
Smoking Gauloises and drinking pop
How could our lives ever stop?

We were born along the Aldermaston March
Now we're older and still marching through the dark
For democracy will you walk with me?
At least we'll know we're not alone

When Franco died the shops in Barcelona ran out of champagne
And I was born under a peace sign sheltering from the hard rain
Our Vietnam. Afghanistan.
Our Luther King dreamt nothing

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If the bombs don't get you, the fall out must
This overcrowded Earth is small
But it's better than no Earth, no Earth at all

We were born along the Aldermaston March
Now we're older and still marching through the dark
For morality will you walk with me?
At least we'll know we're not alone
