Both Sides

Inspired by the Warrington bombings of 1993, similarly to ''Long Long Way to Go'' it discusses that people can get too familiar with violent events when they are part of the daily news, but when it affects them personally, that's a different story...
We stand, hang our heads disbelieving
Then not knowing how could such a thing be wrong
Oh we wonder just what must they be thinking
To take a life of one so young

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
How far must they go to prove to you?

We wait and we wonder how this happened
Killing the old, the innocent, the young
While sons follow in fathers footsteps not understanding
Oh that what they do could somehow be so wrong
So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?

How far must they go to prove to you?
So we will wait and we'll wonder

No regrets, no forgiveness, no compassion
These brave heroes only know to hit and run
Slowly my sadness turns to rage and we wonder
How can these scars ever heal when all is said and done?

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
How many tears must fall to prove to you?
Please tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
And how far must they go to prove to you?
So we wait and we wonder
Yes, we'll wait and we'll wonder
We'll wait, we'll wait and we'll wonder
Yes, we'll wait, we will wait and we'll wonder
Yes, we'll wait... we'll wait all my life
We'll wait and wonder
Yes, we'll wait and we'll wonder
