Cold as steel the darkness waits, it's hour will come
A cry of fear from our children, worshiping the sun
Mother Nature's black revenge on those who waste her life
War babies in the Garden of Eden shall turn our ashes to ice

Sunrise has gone, freezing up the fires
Sunrise has gone, numbing our desires
Sunrise has gone, sunrise has gone

Around the world, the people stop with terror stricken eyes
A shadow cast upon them all to crush them like a fly
In the icy rain and whiplashed seas, there's nowhere left to run
The hammer blows of winter fall, like a hurricane

Sunrise has gone, freezing up the fires
Sunrise has gone, numbing our desires

Around the world the nations wait
For some wise words from their leading light
You know it's not only madmen who listen to fools

Is this the end?, the millions cried
Clutching their riches as they died
Those who survive must weather the storm

Gone are the days when man looked down
They've taken away his sacred crown
To be set free, it took so long
It's not journey's end, it's just begun

Songwriters
BURR, CLIVE RONALD / HARRIS, STEPHEN PERCY / MURRAY, DAVID MICHAEL
