 Maverick Sabre


This song is about war and the real human cost of it, and where this world may go if we don't as people stand together. It feels like the every day person from whatever walk of life whatever background are the real ones affected by all the bloodshed and those who make orders sit back and watch us crumble.

Track By Track: Maverick Sabre - When I Wake Up
No, no, no

80 dead in a foreign place
22 in the bombed foyer, there's
Bloody hands, can you wash these stains?
For the times, can we stop this rage?
Watch the truth get indoctrinated
No money, no doctors for patients
Always money for bombs and not payslips
And the bullets, they keep you in slavery
Mother won't get to kiss her child
Father won't get to see her smile
Little hands, can you hold on tighter?
You saw death, now it's in her eyes
Heard they want to see you misplaced, and
What the hell are we doin' to change things?
Politicians, can you see this pain?

'Cause I can hear guns in the distance
And why don't they listen
When a mother cries for her children?
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
I can hear guns in the distance
And why don't they listen
When a mother cries for her children?
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy

95 in a boat found drownin'
26 from a soldier's gun, there's
Too many kids, many open coffins
Tell me how all these wars been sponsored
Gettin' rich, tell me who gets paid
Little boy in the mornin' page
Do we mourn? Do we learn his name?
Another lost in the pourin' rain
Do we try? Do we try? Do we fall back?
Little girl gettin' called by the food bank
Another mistake is sold through a new plan
Wonder awake and hope for the future
See who gets mentioned as your minutes hand ticks by
Tell me who gets sentenced as they commit violence at stateside
Old greedy men send boys time again out to the front line
Who's a tyrant here? Who's a terrorist? I'm seein' bloodlines
If love is a kingdom, this is a prison that we're inside
And listen, child, go...

'Cause I can hear guns in the distance
And why don't they listen
When a mother cries for her children?
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
I can hear guns in the distance
And why don't they listen
When a mother cries for her children?
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy

Better we run, better we hide away
Forever we fall, we're burnin' the sky away
They'll never be young, they'll never be ours again
Now, look what we've done
And look what we've left for them
Now, look what we've done
Look what we've left for them
Now, look what we've done
Look what we've left for them
Now, look what we've done
Look what we've left for them

I can hear guns in the distance
And why don't they listen
When a mother cries for her children?
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
I can hear guns in the distance
And why don't they listen, why don't they?
When a mother cries for her children?
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy

Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
Ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy-ooh-ayy
When a mother cries for her children
