Title: Where the Restless River Runs

Smell of sulphur in the air

lifeless bodies everywhere

Will we ever understand

we shouldn’t kill our fellowman

 

Too many bullets from too many guns

in this place where the restless river runs

 

Plastic politics reign

powerless promises again

will we ever understand

how to rule our fellowman

 

Too many bullets from too many guns

in this place where the restless river runs

 

Mammon priests preaching love

 cry "fight for God above"

will we ever understand

they’re fooling their fellowman

Too many bullets from too many guns

in this place where the restless river runs

 

 

nationalistic cries

create hate and despise

will we ever understand

we should love our fellowman

Too many bullets from too many guns

in this place where the restless river runs
