I hear the air raid sirens
Howling out so violent
And the churchyard gates are closed
I've seen the rich men smiling
New born babies dying
And I don't know where to go
Machines guns cracking snapping
The sound of windows smashing
I'm afraid I'll lose my mind
I hear strange sounds like singing
And I'd do anything
To be at peace with you tonight

Well, I'll make this all quite clear
You see, I'm kinda young in years
And I've found myself aboard
This broken burning ship

Lucia sits beside you
Shedding all the virtue
Smiling with her glazed blue eyes
All that she's been through
Asking if it's true
That they've only told her lies
I've watched her trampled under
For a pusher's plunder
I'd like to break his head in two
If I had the force of thunder,
I'd smash you all asunder
For the way she's been abused
