[2004]
Tonight somebody's mother's lying underneath a wall
Brought down by another mother's son
And the people there start digging for the living and the lost
Looking for a reason and a why for what was done
One father finds his daughter walking dazed among the rubble
While a brothers huddled crying down beside his sister's shoes
And somewhere in the distance the men who sit in power
Well they're calling for a bloodbath
Say there's nothing else to do

They call for war without an end
To just go on and on my friend
And the leaders will keep fighting
While the others pay the cost
Till the people rise to stop them
Heal the connection that's been lost

Tonight somewhere a mother's told her teenage son is dead
Brought down by another child's gun
And the family's told he sacrificed for country and for God
Take comfort that he gave his life so the battle could be won
And one father finds his daughter on the network's nightly babble
And a mother's crying, praying that her son is found unharmed
And somewhere down the street the men who stand to profit
Well they're calling up their brokers to discuss the stocks and bonds

They call for war without an end
To just go on and on my friend
And the leaders will keep fighting
While the others pay the cost
Till the people rise to stop them
Heal the connection that's been lost

Tonight somebody's mothers lying underneath a wall
Brought down by another Raytheon bomb
And the people there start digging for the living and the lost
While waving flags, some celebrate with patriotic songs
And one father finds his daughter walking dazed among the rubble
And a sisters crying down beside her brother's stolen youth
And somewhere in the distance, the men who sit in power
Well they're calling for a bloodbath
And they will not speak the truth

They call for war without an end
To just go on and on my friend
And the leaders will keep fighting
While the others pay the cost
Till the people rise to stop them
Heal the connection that's been lost.
