Where the children lay and where the bodies lay abroad
Thereís a sense of loneliness, no purpose and no god
I donít want to leave you here but I think youíll do some good
And if they shoot you down, theyíll still remember why you stood
You canít change the demons if the angels keep their ways
You canít save the world if all you do is pray.
Iíll choose that boy before that kid , itís what I had to do
Tell me that Iím wrong but youíd kill your baby too
I canít say Iíll never lie
So continue writing songs
About the day your gonna die.
If thereís some hope beneath the fire
That made dreams go up in flames
Youíll probably be their savior
And theyíll ask you for your name.
