An Astro mix
Oh
So ha-

Woke up this morning
From the strangest dream
I was in the biggest army
The world has ever seen
We were marching as one
On the road to the holy grail

Started out
Seeking fortune and glory
It's a short song, but it's a
Hell of a story, when you
Spend your lifetime trying to get
Your hands on the Holy Grail

But have you heard about the Great Crusade?
We ran into millions, and nobody got paid
Yeah, we razed four corners of the globe
For the Holy Grail

All the locals scattered
They were hiding in the snow
We were so far from home
So how were we to know
There'd be nothing left to plunder
When we stumbled on the Holy Grail?

We were foolish beings
But we were dying like flies
And those big black birds
They were circling in the sky
And you know what they say, yeah
Nobody deserves to die

Oh I
I've been searching for an easy way
To escape the cold light of day
I've been high, and I've been low
But I've got nowhere else to go
There's nowhere else to go

I followed orders
God knows where I'd be
But I woke up alone
All my wounds were clean
I'm still here
I'm still a fool for the Holy Grail
Oh yeah
I'm a fool for the Holy Grail

    General CommentThis is one of the most played Australian songs ever. Often used in football ads.
    Great song. Also sung a lot by druk men in their late 30's early 40's. (ie my father)

    General CommentSounds like an adventure song, with the guy realising that he is explorer but because of this he can't go back to the boring everyday existence most people thrive. Living day to day for the 'holy grail'. ie this quote
    "I've been high and I've been low
    But I've nowhere else to go
    There's nowhere else to go "

    General Commentyer top aussie song. i think is sort of part of some church histroy by the song with " But have you heard about the great crusade
    We ran into millions, and nobody got paid." as millions of people were killed trying to win back holy ground with crusades.
