Little Billy’s got a gun, Little Billy’s just havin’ fun
Shooting bottles on the wall, dreams the hero home from war
Is this real? Is this make believe?
You'd think we'd know how everything’s supposed to be
Like a train blowin’ full speed ahead
I can’t hear what you’re sayin' with everybody screamin’

I’m afraid, can’t lie
Mama said baby don’t you cry
In the dark, be the light
Don’t let go baby, hold on tight
To believe is blind
Don’t sacrifice another child
It’s not black and white
Unless you're looking through a madman’s eyes

Truth it might be crystal clear
But if mine is right there's no room for love in here
Oh God, hope he's listening
When the man with a gun brings the demons in
We live as if our hands are tied
Is it really so hard to do what we know is right?
To protect the things that we hold dear
Must we do things that we should never forgive?

I’m afraid, can’t lie
Mama said baby don’t you cry
In the dark, be the light
Don’t let go baby, hold on tight
To believe is blind
Don’t sacrifice another child
It’s not black and white
Unless you're looking through a madman’s eyes

Run and hide, don’t ask why
Nobody wants to see the look in his eyes
When it’s too late to untwist the knife
How do we face hatred with love inside us?

Mama said, can't lie
Mama said baby don’t you cry
Go to the dark, be the light
Don’t let go, baby hold on tight
To believe is blind
Don’t sacrifice another child
It’s not black and white
Unless you're looking through a madman’s eyes
