Cities in Dust Lyrics - Siouxsie and the Banshees

Review The Song (3)



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 ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
ohh 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 ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
your city lies in dust

Water was running; children were running
We found you hiding, we found you lying
Water was running; children were running
We found you hiding, we found you lying
your city lies in dust
ohh 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 .......

Ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend

Your city lies in dust

An amazing band in history, they deserve a great deal of respect, and you hear the Banshees influence everywhere... An amazing band live Creatures or Banshees..!!



Pompeii | Reviewer: Lillian | 9/29/2007

This is one of Siouxsie & the Banshees' best songs. It's actually about Pompeii and its destruction after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The cover of the single even includes a photograph of an artifact found at the excavation of Pompeii. Just an interesting fact about the song. Enjoy!

One of the best songs from the longest-lasting band to come out of the punk movement. Only The Clash produced more listenable material from the Punk movement.
