Song Lyrics

The war stopped for a moment
We held our breaths, my brothers and I
The poisoned sky stopped crying
The red sun tried to shine

We looked down from the mountain top
And felt so alone
This once was paradise
This wasteland once was home
Oh…

Are you still alive inside, baby
That’s all I need to know
Without you my bloodlust
Would have blinded me long ago

I want to be your shelter
But there’s no shelter left on Earth
I wish I could hide you
But hiding only makes it worse

Don’t let your demons make you cry, no, no
They’ll all be gone by morning
Don’t let your spirits leave your side, no, no
Stay close to the Earth, so you don’t get burned

Oh my sweet child, how did you sleep last night?
She said, I dreamed I saw Saint Francis
He came in the body of a lion and had tears in his eyes
And he said, it don’t have to be this way
And it don’t have to be this way

The masters of war keep marching
Their work is never done
The sacrifice continues
In the form of God’s most innocent ones

The masters of religion
Better learn a new way to love
You know God never created anything
Anything He’s not part of

Don’t let your demons make you cry, no, no
They’ll all be gone by morning
Don’t let your spirits leave your side, no, no
Stay close to the Earth, so you don’t get burned

Oh my sweet child, how did you sleep last night?
She said, I dreamed I saw Saint Francis
He appeared in the body of a lion and had tears in his eyes
And I, I dreamed I saw Saint Francis
And he said, it don’t have to be this way
No, it don’t have to be this way

Don’t fear the light
Don’t shield your eyes
It’s only Holy fire
Don’t be afraid to look inside
It’s only your desire
It’s only your desire
Don’t deny your own desire

There’s a bad storm coming
I believe it’s coming our way
The air is thick and cloudy
The sky gets blacker everyday

The rebel children are waiting
Their time is coming soon
They face no future gamely
They’ve got nothing left to lose

Don’t let your demons make you cry, no, no
They’ll all be gone by morning
Don’t let your spirits leave your side, no, no
Stay close to the Earth, so you don’t get burned

Oh my sweet child, how did you sleep last night?
She said, I dreamed I saw Saint Francis
He came in the body of a lion and had tears in his eyes
And, and I dreamed I saw Saint Francis
And he said, it don’t have to be this way
No, it don’t have to be this way
Don’t have to be this way

Oh…
