    The night is dark, the moon is full
    Across the blood red plain
    And every step and every breath
    Brings me nearer home

    Those spirits watch me on my way
    They whisper in the wind
    And when the dawn lights up the sky
    I'll see my land again

    A hot wind blows the scrub and dust
    Across the barren land
    Well, the trees stand bare like skeletons
    And the mountain's all torn down

    The water holes are dry as bones
    No birds are singing now
    And faraway a city stands
    Tombstones against the sky

    Tombstones against the sky
    Tombstones against the sky
    Tombstones against the sky
