From the dawn of this day
to the setting of the sun
The blood of innocence
like a river it will run
And the children that you meet
on these war torn streets
With vacant eyes ask: "Why must we kill and brutalize"
All in a day,
all in a day..

In a far and distant place
there's a bullet in the air
Another body hits the ground
another soldier who is down
They shall fight back tooth and claw
for a just and noble cause
Annihilate the enemy
to set their people free ?
All in a day
all in a day

Wake me, wake me when it's over
Wake me when there's no more blood upon the land
Wake me, wake me when it's over
Wake me when there's no more war..!

Like lambs led to slaughter
in bondage to the butcher
Misled by politicians,
prejudice and hate
Blindly we shall follow
we shall feed this war machine
Shed our sacred blood,
bleed this noble cause..
All in a day,
all in a day...!

For centuries
these atrocities
in ignorance
exceeded by arrogance
We justify
the ones who die
redeem ourselves
despite ourselves..

Wake me, wake me when it's over
Wake me when there's no more blood upon the land
Wake me, wake me when it's over
Wake me when there's no more war..!!
