This Will Not Stand

For what purpose to what God that you believe in is this Holy war you wage?
Though I try not to see through blinded sight you fill my eyes with rage
The God that I know does not condone these acts that take your center stage
And He will not forgive this act that took these lives before their age

To the fallen, may we never forget how you were so wrongly taken
Though the days to pass will surly leave our hearts battered and shaken
And though I did not know even one of you
I feel as if I’ve lost a sister or brother
And pray to God that peace shall reign before there is another

In this great land
This will not stand
May God be our guide
And help us keep our stride
As we walk through the fire
May he take us higher
And show us the way
To have peace in the world one day

As the settling smoke stains our tears we can grasp no sense or real reason
As you hide like a coward in the devil’s shadow waiting for hell’s season
But this land you waged war on shall bring the day your evil reign will cease on
A new dawn will rise and spread a glorious light of unity, love and peace on

To the fallen, may we never forget how you were so brutally taken
A new time beside a blue-sky dawn and dreams long since forsaken
And though I did not know even one of you
I feel as if I’ve lost a sister or a brother
And pray to God that peace shall reign before there is another
