Read about the sorry way he done somebody's daughter
Chained her to a heavy thing and threw her in the water
And she sank into the darkness with their baby son inside her
A little piece of truth and beauty died

Burning up the atmosphere and cutting down the trees
The billion dollar bombing of a nation on it's knees
Anyone not marching to their tune - they call it treason
Everyone says God is on his side

See the lightning, hear the cries
Of the wounded in a world in holy war
Mortal thunder from the skies
Killing everything they say they're fighting for

Broken babies, broken homes
Broken-hearted people dying everyday
How'd this happen, what went wrong?
Don't blame God; I swear to God I heard him say...

[Chorus]
'Not in my name, not on my ground
I want nothing but the ending of the war
No more killing, or it's over
And the mystery won't matter anymore.'

Broken dreamers, broken rules
Broken-hearted people just like me and you
We are children of the stars
Don't blame God; I swear to God he's crying too

[Chorus]

Read about the sorry way he done somebody's daughter
Chained her to a heavy thing and threw her in the water
And she sank into the darkness with their baby son inside her
A little piece of truth and beauty died
