Black Rain

Album: Black Rain (2007)
  • The black rain is falling
    Contaminating the ground
    The human race is dying
    The dead are scattered around

    What is the price of a bullet
    Another hole in the head
    A flag draped over a coffin
    Another soldier is dead

    How many victims have fallen
    How many more have to die
    People dying in masses
    Ain't gonna get any by

    We've got our marching orders
    Defenders of the homeland
    Our pride
    We've crossed through many borders
    In between suicides

    War, killing sons and daughters
    Another failed attack, there is no turning back
    Blood, running down like water
    'Cause people gotta wait
    Until the judgment comes

    Politicians confuse me
    I watch the body count rise
    Why are the children all marching, Into the desert to die

    The human psyche is twisted
    The madness rising again
    Another aim by a bully
    I watch them dying in vain

    We've got our marching orders
    Defenders of the homeland; our pride
    We've crossed through many borders
    In between suicides

    War, sends our sons to slaughter
    Another failed attack, there is no turning back
    Blood, running down like water
    'Cause people gotta wait
    Until the judgment comes

    Are you ready?

    Black rain, black rain
    Black rain, black rain

    War, killing sons and daughters
    Another failed attack, there is no turning back
    Blood, running down like water
    'Cause people gotta wait
    Until the judgment
    You think you got away
    Until the judgment comes Writer/s: JOHN OSBOURNE, KEVIN CHURKO, ZAKK WYLDE
