Window (Cease Fire)

about

A song for humanity. An anti-gun song. An anti-war song. It saddens me to think of all the things we could be investing our time and money into instead of blowing ourselves up.

lyrics

Sitting by the window watching the rain come falling down
washing away the pain on this blood soaked ground
smile and propose a toast and it seems, seems we're friends for now
but when I get in your way, you'll be sure to knock me down

ohh you'll make your guns
you say we need'em still
to protect us from their guns
but I don't believe they will

Sitting by the window. I'm watching you wash off the mud in the rain
I'm wondering where you keep all of your hatred and pain
angry words still floating, broken promises at your feet
is this the price we pay? is this what you call free

ohh you'll make your guns
while children are starving
homeless vets on our streets
we should be honoring
ohh you'll make your guns
send recruiters to the doors
of our crumbling schools
you're preying on the poor

Sitting by the window. You know there's shelter inside
we could come to this table as brothers
we could walk down to the riverside
there we could find a place, we could lay this burden down
let the rain wash us clean, we could seal this fertile ground

ohh you'll make your guns
and you'll wave your flags
our babies will come home broken
or in body bags
ohh you'll make your guns
you say it'll bring us peace
but wars never do
until the fightings cease.
