"Cities In Dust" as written by and Peter Clarke Susan Ballion....
Water was running
Children were running
You were running out of time
Under the mountain
A golden fountain
Were you praying at the lares shrine?

Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Yeah!

We found you hiding
We found you lying
Choking on the dirt and sand
Your former glories
And all the stories
Dragged and washed with eager hands

Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Yeah!
Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Yeah!

Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Yeah!

Oh, all your cities lie in dust
Oh, all your cities lie in dust

    My Interpretationto me (once looked at the words in person) it kinda reminds me of Ragnarok (destruction of the viking gods) or a futuristic Mayan civilization apocalypse.

    General CommentI swear, the beginning of this song makes me instantly think of Mount Vesuvius and the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The second verse gets kind of weird with that idea though. It'd be an odd topic to discuss for the music, but awesome in the way that it's catchy to the layman but has an interesting story behind it

    Love this song :D
