lyrics

There's a man
A stick to his face
And he's staring, at you and me.
There are pictures, of some far off place.
And bullets that we will never feel and
We will never see

And you said I don't mind, no I will not worry any more
But then these planes keep crashing over heads and falling to the floor
And you said I won't mind, no I will not worry any more
But there are people on the TV fighting, what are they fighting for?

There are flowers, shining like the sun
But they're turning their faces away
From these remains, each one someone
Who's waiting to be sent home today

And you said I don't mind, no I will not worry any more
But then these planes keep crashing over heads and falling to the floor
And you said I won't mind, no I will not worry any more
But there are leaders on the TV smiling, what are they smiling for?

There are little white flags, little white flags, little white flags
For every life, that hit the ground.
There are toys in fields, toys in fields, toys in fields
And bodies, waiting to be found.

And you say I can't handle this now
And I don't know what to say
But things like this happen every day

And there are little white flags, little white flags, little white flags
For every life, that hit the ground.
There are toys in fields, toys in fields, toys in fields
And secrets, wanting to be found.
