God bless us every one
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No!
Repeat x2

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
Ooh!
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

God save us every one
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
For the sins of our hands
The sins of our tongues
The sins of our fathers
The sins of our young
No!
Repeat 2x

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
Ooh!
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Ooh!
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Lift me up, let me go
Repeat 5x(10x)

God bless us every one
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
Repeat 3x

    It is primarily about the end of times. The 1000 sun is infact biblical. Also it says that it can't be outrun and stuff meaning no matter what the end will come. So they are asking for god's forgiveness and bleesings for the day of judgement.
    But the fire of a thousand suns could hint to nuclear warfare.
    Btw; just cuz the songs about distruction doesn't neccessarily mean it's bad. It's telling how inevitable it is and that we shoud prepare for it and ask for god's forgiveness.
