Oh, the storm is threatening
My very life today.
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away


War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away


See the fire sweepin'
Our very streets today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost it's way


War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away


Well, murder
It's just a shot away
Well, murder
It's just a shot away

Brother, sister
It's just a kiss away
Well, murder
It's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away
