Something must be done
A western face cries from the pages
See a child with a gun
The same mistakes run through the ages

See a bullet burn
Bought from a country we charge with beans
Watch the tables turn
They say they're in the wrong hands but who are we

Rip it up
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are headlines and they won't blow away

More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines
Cause these are all our days

How many die before we try
We have the means to end
A genocide won't turn the tide
Ignore a continent

Rip it up
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are headlines and they won't blow away

More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines
Cause these are all our days

So where do we turn
To get some truth in it
A breath of time holds a thousand voices
Should we get use to it
When the profits gone and war rejoices

See the pictures run
Knowing eyes on the waters end
They know no return
We turn the page and shake our heads

Rip it up
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines and they won't blow away

More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines
Cause these are all our days

    General CommentHello. The lyrics are actually, See a bullet burn
    Bought from a country we charge with PEACE

    and
    See the pictures run
    Knowing eyes on a ward of death
