Song Lyrics

Can’t believe the news today
I can’t close my eyes and make it go away
How long
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight

Broken bottles under children’s feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
I won’t heed the battle call
Puts my back up
My back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Alright, soul

And this battle’s yet begun
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won
Trenches dug within our hearts
Mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

How long
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight
We can be as one
Tonight
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight

Will you welcome back Jay-Z
C’mon, c’mon

Straight up at the projects
Expressing all breakers at the peaceful protest
Can’t be oppressed
You turn on the radio, you tuned in to me
Welcome home to Aung San Suu Kyi
Out with Iran, elections are fixed
Out with Rwanda genocide is sick
Turn on your radio let’s all harmonize
To the people in power, hear the army cries
Bup-bup-bup be the sound of the tool
Don’t make me yack enough
Build some schools
Teach the youth what lies ahead
Teach the truth

Everybodys get up, stand up, uh
Stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up / Put a fist in the air
Ask ‘em for your rights

Wipe your tears away
Hey, wipe your tears away / Sunday bloody Sunday
Yeah, yeah
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
Sing it now low
Sunday bloody Sunday

Yeah sell your horoscope
Reboot yourself, yeah
Reshuffle where you’re going
Ho, ho
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
