Guns blaze & wars rage
Schools burn & we are enslaved
Our hearts lost in travesty & tragedy
Our souls crying out to be saved.

We have done terrible things
I have committed heinous crimes
We all want to be held & told it will all be alright

Lines blur & are crossed
Wars waged are then lost
Our eyes are straining to see
Our hearts know the true cost.

We have lost our way
I have forgotten where the path leads
We all have glimpses of where it lay
Beneath shattered homes on the ground.

I want to hold you in my arms
And tell you it will all be alright
I can’t sleep cuz these visions
They stay all through the night
