Lyrics

War

Written By: James O'Brien

Last night I tuned to channel 4
I went to bed with a mind full of war
In the dead of night I couldn't sleep
I sat up and watched channel 3
But it was full of people dying, crying, politicians lying
I couldn't see just why they fight
Why they die or the meaning of life

But you can save me
Before the Devil takes me
Away

And I thought about success
One man bloats, another begs
One man runs at a flat out pace
Another walks and overtakes

So will you save me
Before the Devil takes me
Away

Nothing can go wrong
When I'm in your hands and
You can keep me strong
When the darkness hits this land

Oh you can take me away

And I thought about this mess
The tragedy of life's bitter test
When I wake up in the morning
Will I find myself at a higher calling

Will you save me
Before the Devil takes me
Away

Nothing can go wrong
When I'm in your hands and
You can keep me strong
When the darkness hits this land

Oh you can take me away
