World Wide Suicide (live) - Lyrics

I felt the earth on Monday, it moved beneath my feet
In the form of a morning paper laid out for me to see
Saw his face in a corner picture, I recognised the name
Could not stop staring at the face I'd never see again

It's a shame to awake in a world of pain
What does it mean when a war has taken over?
It's the same everyday in a hell manmade
What can be saved and who will be left to hold her?

The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide
The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide

Medals on a wooden mantle, next to a handsome face
That the president took for granted, writing checks that others pay
And in all the madness, thought becomes numb and naive
So much to talk about, nothing for to say

It's the same every day and the wave won't break
Tell you to pray, while the devil's on their shoulder
Laying claim to the take that our soldiers save
Does not equate and the truth's already out there

The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide
The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide

Looking in the eyes of the fallen
You got to know there's another, another, another, another, another way

It's a shame to awake in a world of pain
What does it mean when a war has taken over?
It's the same everyday and the wave won't break
Tell you to pray while the devil's on their shoulder

The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide
The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide

The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide
The whole world, world over
It's a world wide suicide
