"Revolution Regained" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
They came in the evening
Looking for a fight
The foreign Militia
Stole away our right

[Chorus]
Three thousand miles away
Revolution regained
(Eyes) Eyes that lie and skin that scars

No introductions
Nothing left to say
See the destruction
How could it end this way?
This way?

[Chorus]

And in the evening
Something is seething
(Eyes) Eyes that lie and skin that scars

[Chorus]

And in the evening
Something is seething
(Eyes) Eyes that lie and skin that scars

Revolution regained

    General Commenti think it about any people, any where that have lost their freedom due to war and conflict. kaybe it is about the rebels vs army in africa. i have no idea. i just think it is about people losing their rights.

    General CommentI have a live recording and before this song Chris says it's all about East Timor. So I'd guess it's about the invasion of East Timor in 1999 by Indonesian gurrilas.

    Don't really know about the politics but from what I recall there was a referendum in East Timor for independence from Indonesia. The independence vote was won, but then Indonesian-backed forces invaded, killing over 2000 people.

    It fits with the lyrics
