Dall'album "Street Gospels" del 2007.

"Ostensibly about Vietnam, the song weaves that war with the current conflict, and mixes in an analogy to a broken relationship with a torn nation."

Gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

I hear it coming through the wall
Is that another rebel's call?
Lost out in a lover's squall,
And there won't be no right or wrong.
And we won't sing no victory song,
For a nation that was torn
In a lover's civil war

Gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

So is this grace's last stand?
And will I see your face again,
Or can we find no common land?
And through the windows that got blown,
Comes the thought of the unknown,
And was that six years coming past?
In the shrapnel of a blast

Gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

Drawing lines in the sand...
Has the ship sunk fast?
And was that six years coming past,
In the bullet and a blast
