My Dream

Inspired by events in Iraq

Lord I had dream last night
Of a third world war
Where men women and children died
Score on Score On score
I heard the screams of children
As they watched their parents die
While blue black smoke curled upwards
To fill the once blue sky
I heard the marching armies
Thousands thousands strong
I heard the screams of agony
Above a battle song
I heard the rumbling of the tanks
The bomb dropped from a plane
Lord oh Lord in my dream
The world had gone insane
I saw the horsemen of the apocalypse
Riding o’er the world
As death disease and famine
Once more become unfurled
I saw the devil laughing
Happy full of mirth
That evil had taken over
Our lovely mother earth
I saw Pandora’s box
It lay there open wide
While the horsemen continued
There never ending ride
Yes Lord I am frightened
I pray you intervene
Give me back my peaceful nights
And take away my dream
Enter now the hearts of men
I feel its up to you
Where there’s hate put love Oh Lord
Don’t let my dream come true
