To date, all other avenues have resulted in a blank so I figure there is nothing to lose by posting here.

Way back in 1983, David Gilmour played guitar on at least three songs from the album "Headline News" by Atomic Rooster. For years I have been trying to find the lyrics for two of the songs; Hold Your Fire and Land Of Freedom respectively. To date, I've had no joy from anywhere, not even DG's management, the publisher or even brain-damage.co.uk.

I have been able to make out most of the lyrics for "Hold Your Fire" but if anyone can fill in the gap, or correct any lyrics misheard by me, any help would be appreciated. The lyrics that I have been able to make out for HOLD YOUR FIRE are as follows (song at end of lyrics - ignore the ad):

The final kiss, a single moment
A distant plane heard in the dark
A time to live, a time to die
Where do we go from here?

A gunman crouches in the shadows
A silent bullet cuts the air
No place to run, too late to fly
Where do we go from here?

Hold your fire, we want to live
Hold your fire, we want to live now
Hold your fire, we want to live, now
We want to live now

A cigarette---- unknown ?? Eyes ?? unknown

The echo cracks the ring of steel
No time to hope, no chance to cry
Where to we go from here?

Hold your fire, we want to live
Hold your fire, we want to live now
Hold your fire, we want to live, now
We want to live now

Hold your fire, we want to live
Hold your fire, we want to live now
Hold your fire, we want to live, now
We want to live now

Ten thousand years, a world forgotten
A burning fragment lost in space
No one left to tell the reason why
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?




The second song, LAND OF FREEDOM, has been much more difficult for my ears to translate...

Land of freedom and hope
Oooo see the light come ??
Land of darkness and hope
Nothing’s gonna change
Oooo see…see the light ??

Land of freedom

Land of freedom and hope
Nothing’s gonna change

Oooo, see the light




Hear the sound of men at war
No one’s watching
Just the child you're fighting for

Can you see the devil smile
In a future lost in wonder
We would love the gypsy child

Coming from

Soho

Can you find where you’ve been ?





I will update this original post if / when more of the lyrics have been sorted :-) .
"If the bastards get you down, take them with you".
