Bayonets and tears are gleaming,
In the Irish sun.
No one seems to hear the screaming,
As they raise their guns.

But it doesn't take a doctor,
To identify,
Broken hearts and other,
Diseases of the mind,
But it doesn't matter,
'Cause it's all the same.
It's all in vain.
What You're Fighting for my friend,
Soon becomes,
What You're Fighting against.
What You're Fighting against.
What You're Fighting against.
What You're Fighting against.

IRA rebels are calling
you to hear their plea.
Even now the bombs are falling
Like a dread disease.
But it doesn't take a doctor,
To diagnose,
Shattered dreams and other,
Forms of crushing blows.
But it doesn't matter,
'Cause it's all the same.
It's all in ain.
What You're Fighting for, my friend,
Soon becomes,
What You're Fighting against.

When will it end?
When will they begin to hear?
When will it end?
When will they all see that we're,
All the same?
When will it end?
I hope the day is near.
When will it end?
Dear God, can't you see your way clear,
To save us,
And stop these wars?
Please help us.
You're what we're praying for.
We won't do it anymore.

The violence has ended in Ireland, for the most part, as I write, in 2008. But there's plenty more around planet Earth.
