"Howl" as written by and John Patrick Vivian Flynn....
Howl for my homeland
Wherever that was
And howl for the homage
That's been gone and lost

To the passing and temporal
The eons gone by
There's nothing to praise
Not in earth, sea or sky
All was holy has been shot
And in flying too low
The rest will soon follow
Oh, the rest will soon go

Stay in the light, Joe
Stay with yourself
Put up a fight
Don't rest on the shelf

Growl at the pedestal
Growl at the pinch
The last of the ports
Has broken the winch

Oh the legacy is gone
And the people who knew
Have lost their minds
Oh left, there's a few
Who are choking on what
And the will to hold on
With their principles pinned
To the courts up above

Stay in the light, Joe
Stay with yourself
Put up a fight
Don't rest on the shelf

Me and the teardrop
Me and the mountain
Oh me and the cheque
And to meet my accountant
Oh me and the wolf
Who has eaten my heart
And me and my friends
Who laugh in the dark
Oh and you and yours two
And you are yours three
And you and yours ever
And ever be free

Stay in the light, Joe
Stay with yourself
Put up a fight
Don't rest on the shelf

    General CommentI thought it was "course of a bomb"? Like nuclear tracking?

    And the other thing, with the missing line, could it be:

    Not in Earth, sea or sky,
    Oh what's whole has been shot
    And in flying too low,
    The rest'll soon follow, oh the rest'll soon go.

    Maybe?

    TranslationI like to think he means

    To the passing and temples
    The eons gone by
    There's nothing to praise
    Not in earth, sea or sky
    Oh, what's holy has been shot
    And in time to know
    The rest will soon follow
    All the rest will soon go
