god and guns/closure

God and gun’s

Standing by the blood filled river

The little boy starts to shiver

Now he’s orphaned by another war

To young to understand what for

Crying in the relentless heat

War was never discreet

Innocents held hostage

By the guilty hands of carnage

With demands and demons in their heads

And so the killing spreads

But it’s the young who pay the price

With every roll of our dice

Chorus

God and gun’s what the hell have we done

Armed the fanatic

You don’t wanna see what’s in their attic

Reading between the lines

Brainwashed and confused

By their leaders they are abused

Protests and bloodshed

Misread religion wide spread

But no god asks man to kill

It’s the devils way of a cheap thrill

Laughing all the way to the bank

Religion books should be left blank

Once again the world is held to ransom

By a stranger tall dark and handsome

Gotta be a peaceful solution

Who’s gonna grant us a stay of execution

We must learn to tame the beast

Before mankind becomes deceased

Chorus

God and gun’s what the hell have we done

Armed the fanatic

You don’t wanna see what’s in their attic

Reading between the lines

Brainwashed and confused

By their leaders they are abused

CLOSURE

you’re looking for an answer and you think its out there
I guess some people love and some don’t care
just like new light through old windows
good luck comes as fast as it goes
you’ll always catch it when your not looking
cos there is always something cooking

Chorus
so your looking for closure
because you think somebody owes you
I think you’re wrong, what’s gone is gone
It’s as bright as the midday sun
what’s done is done

so your looking for someone to blame
I can see your sadness and shame
You can’t close that broken door
Babe we’ve all Been there before
it’s up to you to come in
or stay in the dark, fermenting

Chorus
so your looking for closure
because you think somebody owes you
I think you’re wrong, what’s gone is gone
It’s as bright as the midday sun
what’s done is done

you should look inside for what’s alive and what has died
Something in there Must have survived
You won’t find it looking backwards
There’s only one way the tide does flow
For life is a forward motion
and it’s as beautiful as the ocean..
