"Red Sun Burns" as written by Simon Friend, Charles Kenton Heather, Mark Chadwick, Jonathan Sevink, Jeremy Cunningham and Philip Merriam Johnstone....
She took the world up
She was higher than the sun
She didn't have a need
She didn't really want for anyone
She didn't ask for any of this

She painted in the dark
Truth turned into light
Men came in the night
And they set her world alight
She didn't ask for any of this

But the red sun burns
Brighter in the night
Red sun burns
To make you feel alright

But everywhere you go
There's still not enough
For everyone

They left her in the ash
Tears lay in her eyes
She swore no one would take
More than they could create
She didn't ask for any of this

She took the world on
She was higher than the sun
She didn't have a need
She didn't really want for anyone
And she didn't ask for any of this

But the red sun burns
Brighter in the night
Red sun burns
To make you feel alright

But everywhere you go
Here's still not enough
For everyone

    Song MeaningMark Chadwick, lead singer of the levellers, wrote this when he read a novel,
    it was about a french woman who was blind, it was based back in the 1800's,
    the blind woman could paint beautiful pictures and of course she was seen as a witch being able to paint with out having the use of her eyes, the village people got scared, they went on a witch hunt,came in her house and burnt her house down with her in it... dark story. but beautiful.
