Song Meaning
Verse 1
Fire in the sky
Out of 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 crumbling down
Tears in our eyes
As it rained confusion
The whole world has changed
Verse 2
I don't understand
How one can kill a man
In the name of peace
That's ridiculous
Verse 3
They say eye for an eye
So they fire from 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 diePawns in the game of
Collateral damage
The whole world goes mad
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
As we make amends by
Getting our revenge
We sort nothing out
Just add to the doubt
And with God on both sides
Death is justified
Whatever the name
Then we're all to blame
Verse 6
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 weeo
And heal all this pain
So, so we can live again
So, so we can live again
'cause
Verse 7
As we make amends by
Getting our revenge
We sort nothing out
Just add to the doubt
And 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
