Post-glam rock that could have been influenced by David Bowie but we aren’t sure. It may also be a great song for a soundtrack to Pompeii film but it didn’t. They tell about a person (then – several or many people) that lie on the ground covered with ashes of the town that is burnt with fire. Their nostrils are filled with cinder and their widely opened mouths are full of ashes that prevent them from breathing well and freely. Not to tell that this is a horrible picture – but what actually people that sing it wanted to tell everyone from their listeners? Not sure about that.

Cities in Dust Song Lyrics

Water was running; children were running
You were running out of time
Under the mountain, a golden fountain
Were you praying at the Lares shrine?
But oh your city lies in dust, my friend
We found you hiding we found you lying
Choking on the dirt and sand
Your former glories and all the stories
Dragged and washed with eager hands
But oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Hot and burning in your nostrils
Pouring down your gaping mouth
Your molten bodies blanket of cinders
Caught in the throes
And your city lies in dust
