One Man's Fool Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

As the buildings crumble, tumble to the ground
And the dust-filled smoke rises in the air
You know that somebody, somewhere
Looks with pride, they're satisfied

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that they're right
D'you ever wonder why?
D'you never ask the question
Even in the depths of night?

Now, as the daylight fading ends another day
For too many life will never be the same
And it is all for the reason
They will never understand

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that they're right
D'you ever wonder why?
D'you never ask the question
Even in the depths of night?

And on the morning after, do you realize?
See the ruined faces and the ruined lives
Inside your head, do you never
Have the thought a moment of doubt?

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that they're right
D'you ever wonder why?
D'you never ask the question
Even in the depths of night?

There are only dreams, one like any other
What means the earth to one or few
Means nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other
Drawing lines upon the sand
On the land, on the sea
Then dying to defend them
Seems quite meaningless to me

But don't you know what means
The earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing
Nothing, nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other
There are only differences
Worth living but not dying for

One man's joy makes another man weep
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it
One man's saint is another man's fool
One man's hot is another man's cool

And when the war is over, won
Will there be peace forevermore?

Statues carved right out of stone
Out of wood, made from gold
Praying for their mercy
That won't save their souls

But don't you know what means
The earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing
Nothing, nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other
There are only hopes
And beliefs one like any other

There are only dreams like any other
(Worth living but not dying for)
Living but not dying for, not killing for
There are only dreams like any other
(Like any other)

To all of those
Who think that they know
All I can say
Yes, all I can say

One man's joy makes another man weep
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it
One man's saint is another man's fool
One man's hot is another man's cool

There are only dreams like any other
There are only hopes
And beliefs, one like any other
There are only dreams like any other
