"For The Dead" as written by and Martin Rossiter Kevin Miles....
With every wind
I hear you sing
"You will be fine"
With every note
Stuck in your throat
"This is your time", but
Everyone is just walking away from me
Am I really that nasty
All the dust and dirt affects my skin
Everyone is just turning away from me
Am I really that filthy
It's cold and dark, let me in

I'm in love with this land of plenty
Full of folks that still are friendly
I've lost my will, still I see some hope
Give me a rope, I'll take it gladly
Find me a tree, make it sturdy
Bye ma! it's my time to go
Yes this one's for the dead

    General CommentThis was the first Gene song I'd ever heard. It was on a laserdisc music thingy in my local and I put it on about 6 times on the trot, my mates were threatening to pull my arms off, PHILISTINES! That weekend I went out and bought, Olympian, To See The Bright Lights, Drawn to the Deep End and Revelations and I never stopped loving everything they did.
    Just like rahtwinkle I love gene too.

    General CommentCorrection to the above, To See The Bright Lights wasn't a Gene album! To See The Lights was though!
