I 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 the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday (x4)

And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won

Sunday, bloody Sunday (x2)
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight, we can be as one tonight
Tonight, Sunday, bloody, Sunday (tonight)

Let's go!

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away (Sunday, bloody Sunday)
Wipe your tears away (Sunday, bloody Sunday)
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

    General CommentI always thought the Ignite version was awesome...and you can't say "this song is 100 times better then when u2 did it" because well, U2 did more the do it, they made the damn thing. So there would be no covers unless U2 made this truly beautiful POP anthem.

    General Commentthis song already is fucking gorgeous. but to add the element of a more hardcore feel to it makes it just that much better. if you haven't heard this song, youre missing out like none other
