Constantinople

Album: 24 Carrots (1980)
  • Across the western world
    The fights are going down
    The gypsy armies of the evening
    Have lit their fires across
    The nether side of town
    They will not pass this way again
    So here in the night
    Leave your home it's time for running
    Out of the light

    I see the hosts of Mohammed coming
    The Holy Sister bars her doors against the East
    Her house has stood too long divided
    The uninvited guests are breaking up the feast
    She may not bid them leave again
    So here in the night
    Leave your home it's time for running
    Out of the light

    I see the hosts of Mohammed coming
    I dreamed I stood like this before
    And I'm sure the words that I heard then
    Were much the same
    It's just an old Greek tragedy they're acting here
    Held over by popular acclaim
    So here in the night
    Leave your home it's time for running
    Out of the light
    I see the hosts of Mohammed coming Writer/s: AL STEWART, PETER WHITE
