Song Meaning
Verse 1
Call out, call out
Don't you see we're the campfire burning in the dark?
'Cause we've been down this road and we've been down this road before
Calm down, don't cry out
Oh I know, it's your boy, he's burning in the dark
But the horrors of war took us all down those roads before
Verse 2
You know, first they whisper in the backyards
But soon they'll be shouting on the street
And the tower will fall as it's fallen most times before
You know, when the judges go home
Well then, justice, she's carried on the street
And the power of all will be settled like times before
Verse 3
O say, when the battle is over the banners will rise again
And say now we stand as one
Some say what is now will forever and never can be undone
We'll say we have overcome
Verse 4
Fall down, fall down
Hear the shells, seven hells, all are the raining in the dark
It's not water that falls but it carries us down below
Still now, don't cry out
See them roll on by, children crying in the dark
It's not mother who calls when the shadows fall on their doors
Verse 5
You know, first they whisper in the back yards
But soon they'll be shouting in the street
And the blood, it will fall as it's fallen most times before
You know, leave compassion at home
Well then, justice lies broken on the street
And the honor of all will be settled like times before
Verse 6
O say, when the battle is over the banners will rise again
And say now we stand as one
Some say what is now will forever and never can be undone
We'll say we have overcome
Verse 7
So close your eyes my friend
I'll take tonight, you rest your mind
You're weary, worn, and battered down
And when you rise I'll take your hand
The drums will sound and we'll call out
To claim once more our fallen land
Verse 8
O say, when the battle is over the banners will rise again
And say now we stand as one
Some say what is now will forever and never can be undone
We'll say we have overcome
