Silver Age Lyrics

by Pet Shop Boys

The prospect of sun
Page after page
Of black and white portraits
A silver age

Scent of a sunset
On a stage
Difficult music
A modern age

The palace is still
A frozen cage
Bayonets gleam
A silver rage

Earthquakes predicted
And someday soon
A total eclipse
Of the sun and the moon

Earthquakes predicted
And someday soon
A total eclipse
Of the sun and the moon
