Fire in the sky outta the blue and into the red depths
Time for you and I to try to fall asleep in the bed they've made us
All came crumblin' down, tears in her eyes as it rained confusion
The whole world has changed

I don't understand, how one can kill a man
In the name of peace, that's ridiculous

They say eye for an eye
So they fire in the sky and they come outta nowhere
Time for you and I, to turn on the big screen see what's happenin'
And as those children die, pawns in the game of collateral damage
The whole world goes mad

Standing here on quick sand, the more we fight we sink
And vengeance gives us hope, at least that's what we think
At least that's what we think 'cause

As we make amends by getting our revenge
We sort nothing out, just add to the doubt
With God on both sides death is justified
Whatever the name, then we're all to blame

So as the spirits fly, to honor those who've past
We've got to get along, while the time still lasts
Bury the hatchet deep, so we all can weep
And heal all this pain, so, so we can live again
So, so we can live again 'cause

As we make amends by getting our revenge
We sort nothing out, just add to the doubt
With God on both sides, death is justified
Whatever the name, then we're all to blame

But I don't understand, how one can kill a man
In the name of peace, that's ridiculous
But I understand that I will defend
My family from both sides of misery, misery, misery
