"Crash This Train" as written by and Joshua Fred James....
I hope you find what you're lookin' for when it all comes runnin down
I hope you find it painted black on your window, or the lips of your lovers frown
'Cause if it dies in cold, when the clouds start to roll
Is it then that your soul, starts to bleed?

Have you ever seen the President who killed your wounded child?
Or the man that crashed your sisters plane claimin' he was sent of god?
And when she died in your arms, late that night in the dark,
Did you pray to your God to come home?
'Cause it ain't fair to say, that these tracks are the same

So god if you can hear me crash this train
Said god if you can hear me crash this train

Now a note to the President, and the Government, and the judges of this place
We're still waitin' for you to bring our troops home, clean up that mess you made
'Cause it smells of blood and money across the Iraqi land
But its so easy here to blind us with your united we stand

And it ain't hard to see that this country ain't free

So god if you can hear me crash this train
Said god if you can hear me crash this train

To the mothers and the fathers who done the best they could
Raisin youngins in a messed up world, it ain't so understood
So I'll cover my ears, and my eyes, pretend that loves the same
'Cause with one courts signature, it all becomes erased

And it ain't hard to tell,
When its love we sell

So god if you can hear me, crash this train
Said god if you can hear me crash this train
God if you can hear me crash this train
I said God if you can hear me crash this train

    My InterpretationA beautiful song which I believe is about the "war on terror" and the reasons why our defence forces are fighting in a battle that seems impossible to win. Would we be fighting so hard if there was no oil resources there? Also about religious extremists using their "faith" and "God/s" as a reason behind pointless acts of terrorism and murder.

    R.I.P. to all our men and women who have lost their lives during conflict.
