The Passing of My Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've seen rivers red with blood
I've seen valleys filled with mud
I've seen stormy seas that pound upon the shore
I've seen mountains strewn with bones
I've seen people without homes
And it's all with the passing of my life

I've seen highways headin' down
I've seen green grass turn to brown
I've seen forests burn a couple days or more
I've seen prairies filled with holes
I've seen good men sell their souls
And it's all with the passing of my life

And as I see the fury of the fire and the flame
I wonder if my children will have to see the same

For I've seen rockets all ablaze
I've seen dark and deadly days
I've seen cities bombed and butchered to the ground
I've seen battles by the score
I've seen ten too many wars
And it's all with the passing of my life

And as I see the fury of the fire and the flame
I wonder if my children will have to see the same

For I've seen rockets all ablaze
I've seen dark and deadly days
I've seen cities bombed and butchered to the ground
I've seen battles by the score
I've seen ten too many wars
And it's all with the passing of my life

Yes, it's all with the passing of my life
