open up your eyes its time
the old man said to me
he said the damage had been done
its only peaceful when you dream
a mirror image of a better world
that none of us have ever, ever been
its something different
got to stop yourself and recognize your sin

but… oh… the time goes by
and we can think about the problems
with our problems with their
violence and the hunger and the pain
it destroys us every day
oh how I wish that we could make them think
that everything was good its just a dream…
can we stop the fight and make tomorrow
what I’ve seen


oh... its not alright
the rain falls night
imagine yourself
on the other side…
of the gun

and what about your little girl
can you sleep without her smile by your side
and when it rains do you hide the fear that echoes in your mind
because a greedy man cannot pretend
its all alright he’s running out of time
can we fight
can we help ourselves make something of our lives

its not alright
the rain falls night
imagine yourself
on the other side…
of the gun

nightmares in the day

its not alright
the rain falls night
imagine yourself
on the other side…
of the gun
