The black rain is falling.
Contaminating the ground.
The human race is dying.
The dead are scattered around.

What is the price of a bullet?
Another hole in the head.
A flag right over a coffin.
Another soldier is dead.

How many victims have fallen?
How many more have to die?
People dying in masses.
Ain't gonna get any by.

We've got our marching orders,
Defenders of the homeland,
Our pride.
We've crossed to many borders.
Milarty suicides.

War, killing sons and daughters,
Another failed attack, there is no turning back.
Blood, running down like water.
You think you got away.
Until the judgment get it down.

Politicians confuse me.
I watch the body count rise.
Why are the children all marching,
Into the desert to die?

The Human psyche is twisted,
The madness rising again.
Another aim by a bully.
I watch them dying in vain.

We've got our marching orders,
Defenders of the homeland; our pride.
We've crossed to many borders.
Military suicides.

War, sends our sons to slaughter.
Another failed attack, there is no turning back
Blood, running down like water
You think You got Away
Until the judgment day comes

Are you ready?

Black rain, black rain.
Black rain, black rain.

War, killing sons and daughters.
Another failed attack, there is no turning back.
Blood, running down like water.
You think you got away
Until the judgment day
You think you got away,
Until your judgment day comes
