We Loop in the Purple Twilight cho: So stand to your glasses, steady This world is a world full of lies; Drink a health to the dead already And here's to the next man who dies. We stand 'neath resounding rafters The walls all around us are bare. They echo with the laughter, It seems that the dead are all there. In flaming Spads and Camels With wings made of wood and steel We gamble for stakes that are mortal With cards that are stacked for the deal. We loop in the purple sunset We spin in the silver dawn; With a plume of smoke behind us To show where our comrades have gone Additional verse from Songs from the Front and Rear, Hopkins Cut off from the land that bore us Betrayed by the land we find. All the good men have gone before us And only the dull left behind. From "Wild Blue Yonder" See also: Here's to the Last to Die RG
