In the News

 

Read about the sorry way he done somebody's daughter

Chained her to a heavy thing and threw her in the water

And she sank into the darkness with their baby son inside her

A little piece of truth and beauty died

 

Burning up the atmosphere and cutting down the trees

The billion dollar bombing of a nation on it's knees

Anyone not marching to their tune they call it treason

Everyone says God is on his side

 

See the lightning, hear the cries

Of the wounded in a world in Holy war

Mortal thunder from the skies

Killing everything they say they're fighting for

 

Broken babies, broken homes

Broken-hearted people dying everyday

How'd this happen, what went wrong

Don't blame God, I swear to God I heard him say

 

****Chorus

 

         "Not in my name, not on my ground

         I want nothing but the ending of the war

         No more killing, or it's over     

         And the mystery won't matter anymore"

 

Broken dreamers, broken rules

Broken-hearted people just like me and you

We are children of the stars

Don't blame God, I swear to God he's crying too

 

****Repeat Chorus

 

****Repeat First Verse
