Be sure to meet your enemies with open eyes
When you answer drums of war - with a lullaby
When battlefields they come alive - you know you cannot hide
But he who knows your fears - is the man inside
Walk a beaten track - knock on any door
There are no glittering prices for you to score
As if there was an hourglass where time was running out
You hurry seeking shelter from an angry crowd

In silent graveyards - they look for saviors -
a promised land beyond those prayers
A land where all the suffering is gone - and nothing will bring you down
While the road to desolation lingers on

People turn to hatred for what's hard to understand
No love for he who's different than the common man
With the echoes of the ancient bouncing down the aisle
In dark forgotten corners you found saints - keep crying

In silent graveyards - they look for saviors -
a promised land beyond all prayers
A land where all the suffering is gone - and no one will bring you down
While the road to desolation lingers on.
But the road to desolation lingers on
