"Someone's Calling" as written by Robert James Grey, Stephen James Walker, Michael Frances Conroy, Gary Frances Mcdowell and Richard Ian Brown....
turning 'round as if in flight
I sense your breath cut like a knife
a thousand shadows all in pain
what they feel (fear?) must be the same

the tension's mounting with the tide
I see the heat rise to the sky
I search the faces for a clue
a thousand hate(s), some laughter too

the flames were dancing as the people shouted
the streets they were alive as the stage was mounted
a thousand cries of jubilation
from the throes of this great people's nation

and as our bridges burned to dust
a useless theme was quite enough
I felt as you, one with the night
someone's calling in the night

I start to think, I start to cry
the choice is always mine
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?)
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?)
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?)
but I'm too scared to dance (judge?)

turning 'round as if in flight
I sense your breath cut like a knife
a thousand shadows all in pain
what they feel (fear?) must be the same

someone's calling in the night
someone's calling in the night
someone's calling in the night
someone's calling in the night

    My InterpretationIt was written during a tense moment in the Cold War (the early 80s).

    "turning 'round as if in flight
    I sense your breath cut like a knife
    a thousand shadows all in pain
    what they feel (fear?) must be the same

    the tension's mounting with the tide
    I see the heat rise to the sky
    I search the faces for a clue
    a thousand hate(s), some laughter too"

    This indicates the moment of a nuclear attack. The heat, the insane laughter, and the sheer terror at what's happening.

    "the flames were dancing as the people shouted
    the streets they were alive as the stage was mounted
    a thousand cries of jubilation
    from the throes of this great people's nation

    and as our bridges burned to dust
    a useless theme was quite enough
    I felt as you, one with the night
    someone's calling in the night"

    He and a lover are huddled together as they melt with the city? Then again, I have a pretty morbid notion of what's going on, lol.
