Heading
Marius Moves

Voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. I looked from the police to the rioters, from the rioters to the police, and then from police to rioters again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Marius moves an oath is sworn
The parish churches and the bloodstained corn
Where have all the flowers gone
They've gone west young man says I

Stiff in the saddle Cromwell came
They met together in a shower of rain
We ground them into Salisbury Plain
And it came as no surprise

To see you outgunned and outmanoeuvred
Even as you planned your wild campaign
Black were the boots of the young men
Trampling the fields of yellow grain
He lights up his pipe as he tells you the story
Again and again and again

Stop the city block the drains
Tear down the houses and stop the trains
And Johnny came marching home again
To watch the news at ten
Cavalry charges in a flank attack
Tape it on the video and play it back
Look there's me I'm the one in black
He tells his new found friends

Remember how you stood there screaming
On the steps of the corn exchange
Black were the boots of the young men
Trampling the fields of yellow grain
He passes the bottle and tells you the story
Again and again and again
Tell me again

How General Purpose quit the field
The military objectives unfulfilled
We bore him away on his cardboard shield again
