Track Name: Berlin To Bethlehem
Berlin to Bethlehem

Gunfire and headlights
Cameras and headlines
Right before my eyes
There was violence and danger
Hatred and anger
Caught in a victim’s eyes

And it’s a painful legacy
And it makes the peace run deep
And I remember when the wall came down
Still we’re bound by these walls we keep

Failure then triumph
A trickle then a flood
The walk of captives freed
From the wreckage of indifference
The promise of deliverance
From a broken ideology

And it's a painful legacy
And it makes the peace run deep
And I remember when the wall came down
Still we're bound by these walls we keep

A new wall rises
By the city of David
And they’ve nowhere left to go
Caught up in history
Now slaves to the misery
Of yet another border control

It’s a painful legacy
And it makes the fear run deep
But I remember that the wall came down
Still we’re bound by these walls we keep

PQ17

North Atlantic to the Barents Sea
When the waves hit deck they freeze
Artic convoy, 25 below
No-one was supposed to know
Feeding the eastern front, til the battle’s won
We fought the darkness in the midnight sun

And there’s nowhere to hide, here in the circle
There’s nowhere to run if we go down
It’s a cruel war, and we’d change it if we could
But we sailed north for the greater good

Warnings given and a change of course
Enemy ships, overwhelming force
Ordered to scatter, make it on our own
The escorts left and headed home
We knew the risks, but it made no sense
Alone in the ocean there was no defence

There’s nowhere to hide, here in the circle
There’s nowhere to run if we go down
It’s a cruel war, and we’d change it if we could
But we sailed north for the greater good

And they picked us off one by one
Does the First Sea Lord know what he’s done
Of 36 merchants fit to serve
25 gone ….cos you lost your nerve…

North Atlantic to the Barents Sea
When the waves hit deck they freeze
