As I walk beneath the valley,
I shall fear no evil,
'Cause thanks to King George and his rainbow cabinet,
Today murder is legal.

God I know that it's wrong,
To kill my brother for what he hasn't done,
And as the planes blacken the sky,
It sounds like heaven is falling,
It sounds like heaven is falling,
You promised me a new day a dawning.
I've seen a thousand points of light,
Like so many points of hatred, shame and horror.

God I want to be a man,
But I don't want to die with a rifle in my hand,
And as the planes blacken the sky
It sounds like heaven is falling,
It sounds like heaven is falling,
You promised me a new day a dawning.

Well nothing here looks new to me,
But a score of mothers' sons,
Caught 'tween the devil and the deep blue sea.
