Jon Oliva's Pain – Firefly lyrics

As we live our lives like a flicker of star light
On these battle fields the smell of death is real

In fear of attack in a night cold and black
Show me where I can run where no one carries a gun
The enemy lines I’m now caught behind, favor neither a side
Show me a place I can hide this firefly

Try to understand this war wasn’t in my plans, no
The fight for freedom and liberty will go on indefinitely I know
My Life, my home is where I belong
Tell me why must this be an unsolved mystery

Lives have been lost, who’s adding the cost
Broken families left only with memories of fireflies

Now we're facing annihilation, the end to all we know
Devastation soon replacing the end to all we grow
Can’t you see the power and greed that’s sure to doom us all
They won’t rest, now all that’s left is for the world to fall

Now I can see my opponents as scared as me
I know he feels inside all those things we try to hide

The fighting must cease for the world to have peace
Live and let live I believe, see what it’s like to be free
You may just find that somewhere in time
Together we all will be, to live out eternity as fireflies
