"1000 Points of light" as written by Bruce Dickinson and Roger J. Ramirez....
You can sihl in the desert
With a ship of fools
You can smuggle in moses
And his book of rules
But you can't take mother
And give her back her son
Hey what kind of freedom
Is bought with a gun...

People like to build
Their own prison walls
When they're afraid
To look inside a...
A 1000 points of light
Are the muzzle flashes
In the night
And the freedoms
You profess to hold
Won't bring the dead back
From the cold...

Political speeshes
They are lying in the mud
Nothing else matters
But money and blood
Tyranny off freedom
Is do what you like
There's a world gone crazy
'cause it can't say no.

    Song MeaningThere is an error: it is not sihl, it is sail (the act of navigation). I did read in wikipedia that this phrase (1000 points of light) was coined by Peggy Noonan, speechwriter for president Bush (father). I think this song talks about hypocrisy, about the ones who wage war in a pretense cause of freedom, when what they really want is oil ($$$).

    General CommentGreat song. Sounds to me like a commentary on war, specifically how people (especially politicians) don't seem to care about those who died and asking if it's really worth it.
