  • There's a storm on the horizon
    And for that I can't see the sun
    For I'll keep a waiting on the pavement
    For the ice-cream van to come

    Its die hard hate to follow
    And I'll not follow that
    The marching people running round my head
    Running round my head I don't know why

    Why can't we see
    Straight through the powers that be
    Who keep us breaking each others hearts
    And keeping us apart, keeping us apart

    Destroying the ground where gruesome lays
    Sectarianism and the hurtful racist ways
    Bring back the glory days
    Active citizenship
    And pure community
    Freedom of faith

    There's a storm on the horizon Writer/s: JAMES ALLAN
