Twmbarlwm Is On Fire

The mystic site of the Iron Age Fort of Twmbarlwm is north of Risca in South Wales but kids constantly set fire to the surrounding forests and hillsides and stoned the fire crews….

      Twmbarlwm Is On Fire - Paul D E Mitchell


TWMBARLWM IS ON FIRE

Twmbarlwm is on fire

It’s been burning for days

If you look past the falling ash

There are houses ablaze

Some blame the parents

They blame the schools

We blame the system

For making us all fools

For making us all fools

These children have no future

They barely have a past to call their own

Which is why they feel alone – at home.

 

The world could end oh so soon

Flames bring down the spires

Smoke obscures such a beautiful moon

Twmbarlwm is on fire

Some blame the preachers

Who can’t pray for rain

Some blame religion

For binding us in chains

For binding us in chains

These children have no future

They barely have a soul to call their own

Which is why they’re not afraid of God.

 

We don’t  need their Hell Marys now

When Mary’s Hell is coming soon

To a cinema near you

To a cinema near you.

 

Shadows sliding through the dark

Mesmerised by sirens

matches strike such a sullen spark

Throwing stones at the firemen

Some blame the media

Some blame mankind

Some blame our leaders

For robbing us blind

For robbing us blind

These children have no future

They barely have a heart to call their own

Which is why they’re far too cold to care.

 

We don’t  need their Hell Marys now

When Mary’s Hell is coming soon

To a cinema near you

To a cinema near you.
