Lost in the delta of Venus, lost in a welter of shame
Deep in the forest of evil we embark on the new crusade
Cease your foolish plea we have come to banish the land,
I stand as Saint Sebastian with love for a higher command
And there where hope is dust so strange and absolute
Nestling in sweet sorrow is the saviour of our youth.

All is quiet where the angels fear
Oh my blood relations the revolutionary spirit is here.
All is quiet where the angels fear
Oh my heir-apparent the revolutionary spirit is here.

Sons defy their fathers; lose their way deep in the mist,
Their hearts like alabaster crack and crumble when they kiss
Cease your foolish plea we have come to banish the land,
I stand as Saint Sebastian with love for a higher command

All is quiet where the angels fear
Oh my blood relations the revolutionary spirit is here.
All is quiet where angels fear
Oh my heir-apparent the revolutionary spirit is here.

Courage my sad companion mute in silence you’ll find no relief
Faith is the counter-poison; the power compels you to flee from grief.
Cease your foolish plea we have come to banish the land,
I stand as Saint Sebastian with love for a higher command
And there where hope is dust so strange and absolute
Nestling in sweet sorrow is the saviour of our youth.

All is quiet where the angels fear
Oh my blood relations the revolutionary spirit is here.

    General CommentA Peelie favourite of mine this from the 80s, from one of many good Liverpool bands around at the time. Not that I'm from there, but must have been an exciting place for music at the time. Wistful like China Crisis but a bit more uptempo. Very poetic lyrics with a Biblical/ historical feel as well as a revolutionary one.
