Album: Wings of Heaven (1988)
  • songfacts ®
  • In a March 1988 interview with Kerrang! magazine, lead guitarist and songwriter Tony Clarkin said he wrote this song in France, and that it was inspired by a visit to Nice. Somebody lent him a house in the old town, an expensive area; one day when he walked through the market and "literally 20 feet away, there were people laying in doorways." He added: "It was like walking from luxury into a den of thieves. Two worlds living back to back." >>
