Back in the day, I acquired a copy of the LP by the band named "Lamb," titled Cross Between. The music, the writing, the singing are all excellent. If you see a copy, buy it. Lamb was Bill Graham's favorite band, I was told - that's Bill Graham of the Fillmore Auditorium. One song on it, titled Ku, seems to fit today's events and mood, just as it did then:

Ku

Hello dear people
I'm writing this letter
There's something that I'd like to say
The polish is thinning, beginning to show
Through all the dulled eyes carried unwilling

I've stood in your streets and seen them change
Often I've wandered, sat here pondered
Searching the sky with my eyes

Feeling the prison is closer than before
I'd like to think it's a bad rumor
Flowers are hiding still trying to grow
Out of chaos surging around us
A new direction has to be found
The ridge pole sags to the breaking point
It is too weak for the load it must bear

Iron seems colder than before
I feel its clutches are ever present
I'll sing a dirge for the forgotten people
Who suffered intensely because of the blindness
And war for the dollar and death for the scholar
The masks of the leaders are filling with blood
Eyes filled with silence still look out in fear
Through all the dull minds breeding indifference
I've lived your world and watched it dying

Farewell dear people
I'm closing this letter
With hope it incite new growth

I've been watching the end of the cycle coming to pass
The end of the cycle coming to pass
I have been watching the end of the cycle coming to pass...

[If this does not make you cry, it is only because I can not post the music with it.]

Fillmore Auditorium?!!! Is that place still there?
What a great reference for those that knew the Mile-High City back in the day!

I went to several Billy Graham crusades, but I never heard this group. They sound like Irish folk music or something.
All I remember is Hymn #42, "Closer to Thee Lord Jesus"... of course that may have been the same weekend I saw U2 live at Redrocks. My memory is fuzzier than I care to admit.

All joking aside, KU is a good song lyrically; maybe someone should do a cover, with better instrumentals?
Just my opinion.
Good lyrics, just a little hard on the ears.

Thanks for the post.

Sorry, Bill Graham, not Billy Graham. Close, but no banana, the two men are worlds apart...

The "sound" of Lamb is akin to the San Francisco rock of that era, and perhaps more folky than some of it, but not Irish. I love Irish folk, but a wanna-be Jewish friend heard Lamb and pronounced it to be "Jewish Rock."
