Scritta da Trevor Lucas (1943-1989), membro dei Fairport Convention tra il 1972 ed il 1975, fondatore dei Fotheringay e compagno di Sandy Denny fino alla prematura e tragica morte di lei nel 1978.

Nell’album “Nine” del 1973. In seguito nelle raccolte “Meet on the Ledge: The Classic Years (1967-1975)” e “What We Did on Our Holidays - An Introduction to Fairport Convention” e nel disco dal vivo “Fairport - Live Convention”.


“Maledetti siate voi, guerrafondai, che abbiate il fucile o la penna in mano. La brama di potere o di vittoria o di guadagno, castelli costruiti sulla sabbia. Voi avete sempre una buona ragione per prendervi più di quello che vi occorre. I vostri cuori sono pieni di odio e i vostri pensieri colmi di avidità... L’eredità che lasciate sicuramente distruggerà la vostra progenie... Chi sopravviverà sono coloro che seminano nella terra fertile, coloro che nè oggi nè mai soccomberanno...”

Bellissima! E più CCG/AWS di così....!
Time stood dark and silent and the stars they gave no light
I wandered in an endless dream, haunted by the night
I saw four ghostly riders, the horses in a line
Each in turn did point at me and say a mournful rhyme

We are the sculptors of the land, the rulers of the sea
We are the falcons of your sins, gardeners of the trees
The air about you is burning and the sea below does drown
And the legacy you leave your spawn will surely bring 'em down

Bring 'em down - bring 'em down, bring 'em down, bring 'em down
Bring 'em down,
Bring 'em down

A curse upon you men of war, with gun or pen in hand
The power sought or won or bought, the castles made of sand
You always have good reason to take more than you need
Your hearts are full of hatred and your minds are full of greed

Bring 'em down - bring 'em down, bring 'em down, bring 'em down
Bring 'em down,
Bring 'em down

What is deeper than the ocean, colder than the grave
And stronger than your armies all and braver than the brave?
Those who know and all they know will sow on fertile ground
Those who don't and never will are those who will go down

Bring 'em down - bring 'em down, bring 'em down, bring 'em down
Bring 'em down,
Bring 'em down
