lyrics

The sky is turning black (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

Sweet Jesus, is it time to raise the flag?
Is it time to fight the enemy within?
Should I learn my national anthem,
salute a portrait of the Queen?
Should I offer up a prayer to God,
say, "Deliver us of our sins"?

Is it through fear they sound the horn, they bang the drum?
Is it through hate they plant a bomb and detonate?
Can freedom be a battle cry?
Can it be given to someone?
Can it dry a mother's tears
When they're burying her son?

Is there really heaven, and really hell?
Is there really good and bad?
Is your mind starting to ache through all the lies that you've been fed?
Are you reaching for the Aspirin; is it for the Mogadon?
Are you reaching for your bible?
Are you reaching for your gun?
Are you reaching for an answer?
Do you think that there is one?

(solo)

Can you hear the drum - it's beating out the time.
Can you see the train - it's rolling down the track.
I thought I saw the sun break through the clouds the other day.
But now it seems the sky is turning black.
