Creative Brief

Why don't we see what we're doing?

 


(Verse 1)

 

Time's ticking for the children of the damned

 

Water's trickling but this river turns to sand

 

Angelic faces smiling in their playground

 

Bang bang, you're dead, everyone fall down

 


(Chorus)

 

Why don't we see what we're doing?

 

Why can't we sense where we're going?

 

Time after time

 

In line after line

 

Somebody's kids are dying

 


(Verse 2)

 

Old alliances crumble in the dirt

 

Let me introduce you to this new world of hurt

 

A million faces crying on bomb-scorched earth

 

Next generations are doomed from birth

 


(Chorus)

 

Why don't we see what we're doing?

 

Why can't we sense where we're going?

 

Time after time

 

In line after line

 

Somebody's kids are dying

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

Cut this cancer from us

 

Remove the noose so we can breathe

 

Give us light so we can see

 

Unchain our hearts to set them free

 


(Chorus)

 

Why don't we see what we're doing?

 

Why can't we sense where we're going?

 

Time after time

 

In line after line

 

Somebody's kids are dying

 


(Verse 3)

 

Life's ebbing for the legions of the damned

 

History's pages surely won't be kind

 

Excessive greed masquerading as just cause

 

But jungles burn as a prelude to more wars

 


(Chorus)

 

Why don't we see what we're doing?

 

Why can't we sense where we're going?

 

Time after time

 

In line after line

 

Bullets reigning from the sky and

 

Somebody's kids are dying

 


(Outro)

 

Why don't we see what we're doing?

 

Why can't we sense where we're going?

 

(fade out)
