This song is performed by Art Bears and appears on the album The World As It Is Today (1981).
An angel, leashed
Was loosed, and chaos
Reigned,
In England.

War!

Hunger and plague
Pursued their trades,
The sower strewed
His seeds
Abroad
In England

War!

Twin pillars rose
From pits as
Broad as London is

– around them fires raged
Five Hundred miles or more,
In England

War!

The lamp of life
Blew out, Peace
Sheathed his sword,
Calm fell;
Six seconds swept
Ten million
Years
From England.

Music by:

Fred Frith & Chris Cutler.
