My own reflection tells a story as the smoke begins to rise
The river washes clean my dirty hands, drowns out my bitter cries
Now it’s over, but for me
The wars not over, can’t you see?
It’s never over, this can’t be
the world my father died for

A far cry from life I remember
The tender moments lost
On this killing ground forever
Forever
Scarred cries of lives lost in embers
The ashes lie untouched
On this killing ground forever
Forever

Is there any grace in what they told us? Was it true?
Would you take a bullet for a friend if he needed you?
And now we see the world through disillusioned eyes
An age-old fear of God, rekindled by new lies

Now it’s over, but for me
The war's not over, can’t you see?
It’s never over, this can’t be
This can’t be, this can’t be
This can’t be the world my father died for

A far cry from life I remember
The tender moments lost
On this killing ground forever
Scarred cries of lives lost in embers
The ashes lie untouched
On this killing ground forever

Is there any reason that the many trust the few?
Can a faith all blind and binding hide that they lied to you?
And can the God of all be waiting there to catch us when we fall?
A promise made before the wound of war has failed us

Now it’s over, but for me
The war's not over, can’t you see?
It’s never over, this can’t be
This can’t be, this can’t be
This can’t be the world my father died for

A far cry from life I remember
The tender moments lost
On this killing ground forever
Scarred cries of lives lost in embers
The ashes lie untouched
On this killing ground forever

[SOLO MAC]
[SOLO DAN]

And now the echoes of the end are carved in stone
The untamed hunger has outgrown us and shown us nothing
All thoughts and actions stained by blood of those who died, and nothing gained
Our hopes are ball and chained to those that died and lie before us

Now it’s over, but for me
The war's not over, can’t you see?
It’s never over, this can’t be
This can’t be, this can’t be
This can’t be the world my father died for

A far cry from life I remember
The tender moments lost
On this killing ground forever
Scarred cries of lives lost in embers
The ashes lie untouched
On this killing ground forever
