Mother please forgive them
For they know not what they do
Looking back in history's books
It seems it's nothing new
Oh! Let my mother live
Heaven is for heroes
And hell is full of fools
Stupidity, no will to live
They're breaking God's own rules
Please let my mother live
Father, of all creation
I think we're all going wrong
The course they're taking
Seems to be breaking
And it won't take too long
Children of the future
Watching empires fall
Madness the cup they drink from
Self destruction the toll
I had a vision, l saw the world burn
And the seas had turned red
The sun had fallen, the final curtain
In the land of the dead
Mother, please show the children
Before it's too late
To fight each other, there's no-one winning
We must fight all the hate

    its about the earth and how we are destroying it and our future children will be seeing it be destroyed slowly. but there is hope and there is a god who can help, that is why he mentions creator and a heaven and a hell. Hell for the fools that destroys it and live in their filth and heaven for for the hero's that will save it and live on a better world.
