I heard a shot last night, it woke me up from my sleep.
Theres no such thing as friendly fire.
Oh mama, dont turn on the lights,
Oh papa, get away from the window,
You never know which way the angels comin in.
And the waters gonna roll. roll up the dirty streets,
And the winds gonna blow out the lights.
Rock the world to sleep, I dont wanna be left behind,
And get caught between the lines drawn across this town
Runnin out of neutral ground.
Somebodys waitin for my brother,
To them hes just another number.
To me he never did no wrong,
My sister, dont be pulled in.
Dont make the same mistake again,
Theres just no way to even up this score.
I cant be no judge, I cant be no jury.
I dont even know whats right or wrong.
I stand between the walls,
These walls are bigger than life,
Seems like theyll never get enough.
