We all see the world in black and white
everybody's wrong and everybody's right
Peace is only won if we choose to fight
Angels fly but the Devil takes flight
with God on our side who will make it all right

We all see the politics who lie
who hide behind their walls to wage war
to feed the rich and bury the poor
living on the promise of a forked tongue
now with tomorrow already gone
who will say it was all for our young

We all see but nothing is in sight
we look for the truth but there's no more light
morning comes but we burned out the sun
wasted away blood fills the sky
as one by thousands we will surely die

We all see we're running out of places to go
it's the signs of an end to a time
we all hear the final trumpets blow
but the Church bells will no longer chime
where Heaven and Hell collide and there is no more
