"I wish we'd all been ready" as written by and Larry Norman....
Life was filled with guns and war
And all of us got trampled on the floor
I wish wed all been ready
The children died, the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish wed all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
The son has come and you've been left behind

A man and wife asleep in bed
She hears a noise and turns her head he's gone
I wish wed all been ready
Two men walking up a hill
One disappears and ones left standing still
I wish wed all been ready


The father spoke, the demons dined
How could you have been so blind?

[Chorus: x2

I hope well all be ready
You've been left behind [Repeat: x3]
