As the Dust Settles In
By Josienne Clarke

Me
All that we were
Drowned in the earth
As the dust settled in

Speak
While there isn’t a word for
So much so unheard of

For hope and for glory
(For King and for country)
Your country needs you
And what greater honour
(To victory!)
For a young man to do

Frances
Was only a boy
He’s grasping at joy now
Armed for the night’s wrestling

Brave, he says
Each man is the same
He lies in his grave
And watches the dust settle in

For hope and for glory
(For King and for country)
Your country needs you
And what greater honour
(To victory!)
For a young man to do

Solo

For hope and for glory
(For King and for country)
Your country needs you
And what greater honour
(To victory!)
For a young man to do

Those of us
We live like ghosts of us
Only in hope of us
Of the dust settling
