​Fortress

This song is by Marc Almond and appears on the album The Tyburn Tree (Dark London) (2014).

Every cry of every man, every song and every eye
Every voice and every sigh, runs in blood until you die
Every cry of every man, every arrow of desire
Every voice and every sigh, runs in blood until you die
In every cry of every man, in every infant's cry of fear
In every voice, in every ban
The mind-forged manacles I hear

London, runs in blood, London, in every cry
London, runs in blood, London, arrow of desire

I wander through each chartered street
Near where the chartered Thames does flow
And mark in every face I met, marks of weakness
Marks of woe

Through the midnight streets I hear
How the youthful harlot's curse
Blasts the new-born infant's tear
And blights with plagues the marriage hearse

London, runs in blood, London, in every cry
London, runs in blood, London, arrow of desire
Bring me my Bow of burning gold
Bring me my Arrows of desire
Bring me my Spear, O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
London, runs in blood, London, in every cry
London, runs in blood, London, until you die
London, runs in blood, London, in every cry
London, runs in blood, London, until you die
London, until you die, London, until you die
London, until you die
