lyrics

The sound of shots in the winter breeze
can bring a sane man to his knees.
Listening, oh so swiftly, as his brother's forced to sleep.
United we stand, divided they'll fall
Junior will wish he hadn't gotten the call
It's too late now, time is running out.
The sun is slowly setting down.

And now I'm starting to see, that no amount of war can make a man
any stronger than the sleight that has been placed into his hands.
Don't you worry, this will all be over soon.
Or at least I hope.

At night we lie awake, from the pills we have to take.
Running blindly in the dark, so many fears we've yet to face.
United we stood, divided they'll fall
Junior's life ended in the hospital
It's 3 A.M. and I'm at it again.
Will these nightmares ever end?

And now I'm starting to see, that no amount of war can make a man
any stronger than the sleight that has been placed into his hands.
Don't you worry, this will all be over soon.
Or at least I hope.
