"Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones cover)" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Oh, the storm is threatening
My very life today.
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

See the fire sweepin'
Our very streets today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Well, murder
It's just a shot away
Well, murder
It's just a shot away

Brother, sister
It's just a kiss away
Well, murder
It's just a kiss away, a kiss away, a kiss away
