lyrics

A body lying in the sand
Flowers in her blood-stained hand
Close her eyes and wrap her in a bag
She’s too small to hold a gun or a flag

A man who loses everything
Answers to no holy king
But those who stood and watched the falling bombs
Will answer for his grief in years to come

Don’t bring a gun to a war for the hearts and minds of children
Don’t forget the difference between freedom and fear
This cannot end until people understand
The answers to your question are buried in the sand

A body lying in the street
Hot debris around her feet
A victim of a victim of a world
That spurned a man and took his little girl

Don’t bring a gun to a war for the hearts and minds of children
Don’t forget the difference between freedom and fear
This all will end when people understand
The answers to your question are buried in the sand
