lyrics

Shrapnel buried in his skin
Bloodstains where he'd hit the ground
Bomb blasts carried by the wind
Sorrow married to the sound

Armies vying for control
People dying in the street
Mothers trying to console
Children crying at their feet

We're calling out to you
Do you hear it now?
We've done all we can do
But you could save us
When the day is through
And the sun goes down
Don't forsake us

This hate's killing everything
Bad blood spilling through the years
Poison filling every spring
Are we willing to let fear
control us?

We're calling out to you
Do you hear it now?
We've done all we can do
But you could save us
When the day is through
And the sun goes down
Don't forsake us
