Lyrics & Music by John Watts
Album: Red Skies Over Paradise
Red Skies Over Paradise

Red Skies over Paradise is a 1981 album by Fischer-Z. This was the last album released under the classic line-up, despite the departure of keyboardist, Steve Skolnik. This album featured many songs about politics and several references to the Cold War, the album title and cover in particular..
The album received positive reviews from fans and encouraged band leader John Watts to pursue a solo career, thus ending Fischer-Z until its revival in 1987..
The map has gone
It's burning in the afternoon..
The smell's so strong
No chance to wait away..
Gold medallions -for the proud men in khaki
Battalions of strangers.. Battalions of strangers..

No one wants to lead the way
Be the first death of the day
Leave his family behind
It must all be in the minds
Of Battalions of strangers.. Battalions of strangers..
Battalions of strangers.. Battalions of strangers..

The sound of guns has given way to children's cries
The war has come home
The black smoke and the hordes of flies
Gold medallions -for the citizens who stand and wait
Battalions of strangers.. Battalions of strangers..

No one wants to lead the way
Be the first death of the day
Leave his family behind
It must all be in the minds
Of Battalions of strangers..
Of Battalions of strangers..

The voice of calm -from Moscow to the Pentagon
Sound the alarm, -and try to back the better one
Gold medallions -for men who must negotiate
Battalions of strangers... Battalions of strangers...
Battalions of strangers... Battalions of strangers...
Battalions of strangers... Battalions of strangers...
...Out
