The Sisters of Mercy - Eyes Of Caligula - second live performance ever @Salzhaus,
Winterthur, Switzerland, 24 April 2022   -   *** with many thanks to Jens for the upload ***

During the worldwide "zombie apocalypse" coronavirus lockdowns, which ended
The Sisters of Mercy's Europe Spring Tour of 2020 after only four UK-dates,
the band turned to writing further new songs instead of touring.

On April 25th, 2020, five new titles were added to the list of upcoming new songs on
the official Live News Page followed the next day by the lyrics to Eyes Of Caligula,
announced already in the run-up to The Sisters 2020 Europe Spring Tour, as well as
the lyrics to Six Ways To Sunday.

Eyes Of Caligula was first performed live at the ROXY in Ulm, Germany on 23 April 2022
and already again on the next day at the Salzhaus in Winterthur, Switzerland.

Discussions about the meaning of this and other new songs can be found
@The Heartland Forums from around here or in the Lyrics section.



no new jerusalem
there is no us; there's only them
this is not my map at all

wrapped in sugar for her pains
no, she says, I'm wearing stains
she do mascara fail
there is a wall and you will wail

remember what you can
rain on the face
where the dogs ran
crippled all in scented lace

where were miners in the dark
there's needles in the park
eyes of caligula look on

we had wool and we had steel
we had liverpool, not ever much your england
now the chrome and we should kneel
in a home where we're not real
eyes of caligula look on

there was a north
there was a north
eyes of caligula look on
