Paramore – Sunday Bloody Sunday lyrics

I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight, we can be as one tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
And bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and tv reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die, yeah

I wipe the tears from your eyes
I wipe your tears away
(Tonight, tonight)
I wipe your tears away
(Tonight, tonight)
I wipe your tears away
(Tonight, tonight)
I wipe your bloodshot eyes
(Tonight, tonight)

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
(The real battle just begun)
Sunday, bloody Sunday
(To claim the victory Jesus won on...)

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

    What's hilarious about the comment before me is: "that's why I also loved the paramore band bec. of their deep and very meaningful meanings of each of their songs" paramore didn't even write this song. Its a U2 song.
    And actually. Its about Bloody Sunday, what happened in Derry, Northern Ireland on Sunday, January 30th, 1972 between Roman Catholic civil rights activists and the British army, when 27 Irish were shot, and 14 were killed.

    Okay- this is the first and the last time i'll comment on this-you and that is every bloody one who has commented on this are too ill informed about that day-it was outside of derry in the held hostage six counties in northern ireland- the british army once welcomed by the catholic minority-now fear them- these children- most 17 years old- were shot in the back, running from a peacefull protest march, two were shot in the face, stopping to help their friends, and pleaded for theire lives, saying "i'm not armed-i'm trying to help! " the brits shot these kids in the face. 13 died that day, one 4 months later. You-2 is B. S. Good group- but erie og has the real lyrics and a true song of ireland and those days- I know I was there. (that's a period) .

    It means someone narrating what's happening in our poor world today. How poor we are and how we are suffering and also missing our love ones. All I gonna say is we should hold hands and help it today by creating peace by starting it by our selves. That's why I also loved the paramore band bec. Of their deep and very meaningful meanings of each of their songs.~_~.
