Modern English

Modern English (sometimes New English as opposed to Middle English and Old English) is the form of the English language spoken since the Great Vowel Shift in England, completed in roughly 1550. more »

turning 'round as if in flight 
I sense your breath cut like a knife 
a thousand shadows all in pain 
what they feel (fear?) must be the same 

the tension's mounting with the tide 
I see the heat rise to the sky 
I search the faces for a clue 
a thousand hate(s), some laughter too 

the flames were dancing as the people shouted 
the streets they were alive as the stage was mounted 
a thousand cries of jubilation 
from the throes of this great people's nation 

and as our bridges burned to dust 
a useless theme was quite enough 
I felt as you, one with the night 
someone's calling in the night 
 
 I start to think, I start to cry 
the choice is always mine 
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?) 
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?) 
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?) 
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?) 

turning 'round as if in flight 
I sense your breath cut like a knife 
a thousand shadows all in pain 
what they feel (fear?) must be the same 

someone's calling in the night 
someone's calling in the night 
someone's calling in the night 
someone's calling in the night
