Easter Greetings
#1
I don't know if it's appropriate to say Happy Easter, which seems particularly odd right now, but whether or not you observe it, wishing all a good Easter weekend! 

A lockdown redo of their song from Season's End ... (the original - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFQLAnAcrDc)





A ghost of a mist was on the field
The grey and the Green together
The noise of a distant farm machine
Out of the first light came
A tattered necklace of hedge and trees
On the southern side of the hill
Betrays where the border runs between
Where Mary Dunoon's boy fell
Easter here again
A time for the Blind to see
Easter
Surely now can all of your hearts be free
Out of the port of Liverpool
Bound for the North of Ireland
The wash of the spray and horsetail waves
The roll of the sea below
And Easter here again
A time for the Blind to see
Easter
Surely now can all of your hearts be free
What will you do?
Make a stone of your Heart?
Will you set things right
When you tear them apart?
Will you sleep at night
With the Plough and the Stars alight?
What will you do?
With the wire & the gun?
That'll set things right
When it's said and done?
Will you sleep at night?
Is there so much love to hide?
Forgive
Forget
Sing 'Never again'

From Wiki - "Easter is a song from English neo-progressive rock band Marillion's 1989 album Seasons End, which became a UK Top 40 hit when issued as a single in 1990. Allmusic describe the song as "heartfelt" with an "imaginative electric-acoustic arrangement".[1] As with many Marillion songs, the album version features an extended guitar solo by Steve Rothery, which has become a fan-favourite, although it is heavily edited for the single version. The song was written by singer Steve Hogarth before he joined the band in 1989[2] and was inspired by The Troubles in Northern Ireland. The title is in reference to Easter 1916 by William Butler Yeats. Portions of the video were filmed on the Giants Causeway." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_(Marillion_song)
