Verse 1
Standing on the border,
Waiting on the line.
Silence is a stranger,
In these troubled times.
I recall a better place,
Where I controlled my mind.
We had no fears at all
The day before the war.
Hands across the water,
The sun is in the east.
Who will feed the famine
After lions feast?
In the name of Jesus,
In the name of god,
You took it all in vain
The day before the war.
Standing on the border,
Waiting on the line.
Feet in bloody water,
Deafened by the crime.
I recall the beauty,
Young will never see.
We had no fears at all
The day before the war.
Hearts across the water,
The sun is in the east.
Ships arrived this morning,
From the burning sea.
Take away the glory,
Take away the pain.
You were a friend of mine
The day before the war.
