Algiers - Cry Of The Martyrs (The Underside Of Power Album) lyrics


[Verse 1]
With the world to win behind us
Out here shunned for all to see
Dirty the tub with our bodies to remind us
Of our defeat at Calvary

[Verse 2]
They'll say our whole life is a locust
Disturbing their fascist peace
But it is they who mangle our horizons
Of our defeat at Calvary

[Chorus 1]
And I see the light and I see the sea
Despite the future crashing down and closing over me
I can't tower over all my enemies
Listen to the martyrs cry for me

[Chorus 2]
And I see the light and I see the sea
The sun is going down but everyone leaves me burnin'
I see the winning on the other side of history
Listen to the martyrs cry for me

[Verse 1]
With the world to win behind us
Out here shunned for all to see
Dirty the tub with our bodies to remind us
Of our defeat at Calvary

[Verse 2]
They'll say our whole life is a locust
Disturbing their fascist peace
But it is they who mangle our horizons
Of our defeat at Calvary

[Chorus 3]
Hey, ha let's go wreak some violence
Reduce our memories to silence
We're passing all the stories of the unsung and unseen
Listen to the martyrs cry for me

[Chorus 4]
'Cause I seen the light and I seen the sea
I'm waiting for the [?], I'm waiting for perdition
I can't carry myself, I will die in peace
Listen to the martyrs cry

[Verse 1]
With the world to win behind us
Out here shunned for all to see
Dirty the tub with our bodies to remind us
Of our defeat at Calvary

[Verse 2]
They'll say our whole life is a locust
Disturbing their fascist peace
But it is they who mangle our horizons
Of our defeat at Calvary
