lyrics

I try to tear myself away
I'm gripped by the news
I've heard it said in times of war
The first to die is the truth

I'm damned if I know the answer
I need one today
I'm damned if I know the answer
So Godless I wait.

Shame upon the wounded soul
Who finds his voice in the guns
Shame on you who use this fear
A plague upon your sons

I'm damned if I know the answer
I need one today
I'm damned if I know the answer
So Godless I wait

I try to tear myself away
I'm gripped by the news.
The lines are drawn, the wars go on
Christian, Muslim and Jew

I'm damned if I know the answer
We need one today
I'm damned if I know the answer
So Godless we wait

I'm damned if I, damned if I, damned if I know
I'm damned if I, damned if I, damned if I know
