Some lives are seen through clean air,
Where trouble is a distant stain.
Others appear through twisted flame
As wraiths who pray for rain.

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
In our ear a rumored knell.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
And we wonder what it foretells.

Father's pipe frees a wreath
Children sit beneath,
Safe to pass
The night before Broken Glass.

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
In our ear a rumored knell.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
And we wonder what it foretells.

On the walk to school
Dew lies in grey jewels
Beneath shrouding black
Industrial stacks.

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
In our ear a rumored knell.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
And we wonder what it foretells.

Converted cash,
Now a bomb flash
Lights the dark release
Of houses burning peace.

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
In our ear a rumored knell.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
And we wonder what it foretells.

No cattle in the cars
Adorned with stars.
Locomotive exhaust
Trails to holocaust.

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
In our ear a rumored knell.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
And we wonder what it foretells.

Over the gates and beyond the wall -
A pall.
Showing too well
The reason for Hell.

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
In our ear a rumored knell.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
And we wonder what it foretells.

How long will You wait oh Lord?
Earth like the temple will shake
As it fills with the smoke of Your glory.
People will see Death forsake them
As You draw Your sword to end the story.

How long oh Lord?

Over our head is a sky of smoke,
And the best we can call it is strange.
Over our head is a sky of smoke
But soon its essence will change.
