  • We're living underneath the land of sorrow
    I can hear the bombs rain down
    And how do I explain there's no tomorrow
    I can hardly make a sound

    Dead silence
    I think we can't escape
    'Til death
    Do us part
    In the end

    They're marching up the main street
    As my heart beats
    Louder then machine gun fire
    The sound of all the sirens sing like violins
    Rattling the coil of wire
    I heard the solders say
    "Don't let them get away"
    But I could not escape their bullets and grenades
    A causality of war
    A victim of mistake
    Another widow has been made

    Dead silence
    Will come to and rescue me
    When violence
    Has took this world away
    Dead silence
    I think we can't escape
    'Til death
    Do us part
    In the end

    Dead silence
    Will come to and rescue me
    When violence
    Has took this world away
    Dead silence
    No time to be afraid
    My love
    I will see
    You again

    Hey
    Hey
    Hey
    Hey

    Fly away like the wind
    Some things God can't forgive
    Why is war just a fight
    While the innocent die

    They can tear us apart
    I'll still live in your heart
    If your spirit gives up
    Don't surrender your love

    And the world will survive
    If we stand side by side
    One day hope will arrive
    Now I must say goodbye

    Dead silence
    Will come to and rescue me
    When violence
    Has took this world away
    Dead silence
    I think we can't escape
    'Til death
    Do us part
    In the end

    Dead silence
    Will come to and rescue me
    When violence
    Has took this world away
    Dead silence
    No time to be afraid
    My love
    I will see
    You again

    Dead silence
    When violence
    Dead silence

    Dead silence
    When violence
    Dead silence

    Dead silence
    When violence
