Sometimes it makes me wonder
Sometimes it makes me question
Sometimes it makes me saddened
Always it makes me angry but

When you can see it happening
The madness that's all around you
Nobody seems to worry
The World seems so powerless to act

It's out of control
Blood on The World's hands
Each day a new toll

Another assassination
The same day a new creation
But what are they coming into
Security of a world that brings

One day another killing
Somewhere there's someone starving
Another a savage raping
Meanwhile there's someone laughing at us

It's out of control
Blood on The World's hands
Each day it goes on

Brutality and aggression
Tomorrow another lesson
Expecting another air raid
Praying for a ceasefire

They say things are getting better
No need to be complacent
There's chaos across the border
And one day it could be happening to us

It's out of control
Blood in The World's hands
It's our epitaph
It's out of control
Someone should know
Blood on The World's hands

Someone should

    General CommentIt's strange that no one posted a comment, even if heavier songs are what most people like, but a song full of nice meaning and imagery, is a nice song as well, not to mention that the lyrics and music are still very nice.

    General CommentI agree. Even if the songs on X Factor are not as fast and heavy, or without Bruce, I still believe they are very, very good songs. Very emotionally driven. Especially this.

    General Commenti completly agree with dragonwing
    this album fuckin rocks. and this song
    is so true about the world we live in, its
    quite shocking, but i dont think some of
    the little bass bits in the intro really
    fit the song so well

    General CommentThe world we live in is FUCKED because of the corrupt sons of bitches who rule and allow everything to fail, like the gun stuff in manchester (if anyone doesn't know anything about it don't worry it's a british thing where teenagers are getting guns so fucking easily) and how to say we're supposedly living in a civilised world alot of people are getting raped, mugged, murdered and other shit, WE NEED VIGILANTES AND WE NEED THEM NOW!

    General CommentGreat song, really true.Too much violence in the streets these days and no one really does something about it. Blaze's albums are 2 of Maidens best, especially with the lyrics about war and violence which really fit his voice.

    General CommentApart from the lyrics, this song is awesome. The bass solo in the beginning, the slow start, and the beautiful solo. It took me several hearings before I started to like this song, but it is perfect. I love it.
