Ringing of Revolution

  • Bookmark this page

In a building of gold, with riches untold lived the families on which the country was founded And the merchants of style, with their red velvet smiles were there, for they also were hounded And the soft middle class crowded in to the last for the building was fully surrounded And the noise outside was the ringing of revolution Sadly they stared and sank in their chairs and searched for a comforting notion And the rich silver walls looked ready to fall As they shook in doubtful devotion The ice cubes would clink as they freshened their drinks wet their minds in bitter emotion And they talked about the ringing of revolution We were hardly aware of the hardships they beared for our time was taken with treasure Oh, life was a game, and work was a shame And pain was prevented by pleasure The world, cold and grey, was so far away In the distance only money could measure But their thoughts were broken by the ringing of revolution The clouds filled the room in darkening doom as the crooked smoke rings were rising How long will it take, how can we escape Someone asks, but no one's advising And the quivering floor responds to the roar In a shake no longer surprising As closer and closer comes the ringing of revolution Softly they moan, please leave
